"I think this event was conducted in a very professional manner. It was instructive to get insights from IBM experts as well as networking and sharing experiences with leaders in several industries. Introducing research from academics was also very stimulating … and reminds us that big data software and solutions are very dependant from deep mathematics and languages theory!"
Mr. Philippe Duranté, Vice-President IBM Alliance, Sogeti France
"A good variety of very actual topics: mobile technology deployment, big data usage examples, public and private cloud best practices and challenges... Some interesting IBM customer presentations and real life examples in these domains. Also interesting to see are IBM's continued efforts to make the IBM mainframe a more attractive platform for young IT professionals: the IBM System z Academic initiative, the coupling of more modern technologies with the traditional mainframe."
Mr. François Matthijs, Director, Corporate Technology Division, Euroclear SA/NV, Belgium
"IBM's participation with GSE members continues to help us better focus on innovation that matters. And I personally found the agenda of the most recent GSE meeting to be most informative and compelling. I look forward to continued interaction with our valued customers and GSE."
Mr. Ray Jones, Vice President, z Software Sales IBM SWG, USA
“The GSE Management Summit this year was conducted in the most professional way and in perfect surroundings. A well composed program was perfectly set to fit this kind of audience. The Summit gave me ideas and an energy boost that I and my company will benefit from as we constantly try to improve our services. The combination of presentations from IBM that very much related to real business values, and the experiences from my fellow attendees serves as a valuable knowledgebase. Well done, and please keep up the good work!”
