Welcome to the IBM Power Systems community!

I’m Osi Otugo, your community manager. I am so excited to work with you to build this community. We want this to become the definitive environment for you to connect with other IBM Power Systems users, share best practices, access information and webinars, and ask for advice.  First, let me share our IBM Community manifesto:

“We are not here to talk at you, our customers. We are here to help you talk to each other, and to us.”
I share this because I want you to know we are serious about fostering authentic community. It is a community for community. You have our commitment this is a safe space to connect with other users, share your knowledge and ideas.

What will you find in this new IBM Power Systems community?

We are launching our discussion under several topic groups:
