IBM Integration User Group UK

The User Group was founded in 1996, and has held user events each year since. Currently we have around 80-100 attendees at each of the meetings that we hold at IBM South Bank and IBM Hursley each year.

Purpose

The user group is an independent body, whose purpose is to promote the understanding of IBM Integration technologies, and industry trends. These technologies include IBM's Messaging, Cloud Integration and API Economy technologies, and products include:
  • IBM MQ
  • IBM App Connect Enterprise (aka IBM Integration Bus / Message Broker)
  • IBM DataPower
  • IBM API Connect
  • IBM Cloud
  • IBM Cloud Pak for Integration
Typical industry trends covered include:
  • Cloud
  • Containerisation of Integration Technologies
  • Microservices
  • Agile Integration Architecture and Modernisation
  • Integration Technology Architectures
  • Governance
  • Patterns

Events

Our premier event is held once a year at IBM Hursley, the home of IBM MQ & IBM Integration and API technologies. A normal year will involve two events; for example:
  • WebSphere User Group at IBM South Bank, in London - collaborative: March
  • IBM Integration User Group at IBM Hursley, near Winchester - in-depth: June or July

Dates are for guidance - please see the events tab on this site for the actual schedules.

Policies

The user group is a non-profit making organisation. We predominately service the UK community, and as such most of our members are UK based.

The committee meets several times a year to plan and organise the events. We are always interested to know if anyone would like to join the committee; if you would, then please contact us via this group, or see us at one of our events for a face-2-face chat.
