UK and World Wide Spectrum Scale User Group Meeting

The UK/World Wide 2019 Spectrum Scale user group is planned to take place on 8th and 9th May, once again overlooking the River Thames at IBM’s South Bank Client Centre.

The draft agenda for the event is posted below and has a mix of IBM, customer and sponsor talks. This year we have a particular focus on AI with Spectrum Scale and it promises to be another great two days.

Thanks to our sponsors, we’re able to run an evening dinner/networking event. We’ll provide more details on this on the day, but make sure you plan to attend our evening event!
