ISP2017: The Times They Are A-Changin'

Following the ADSM-Workshops (starting 1994 at Karlsruhe University), the well-received ADSM/TSM-Symposia (since 1999) at Oxford University and the last TSM-Symposia at the Grandhotel Petersberg in 2009, the Hilton Dresden Hotel near the Frauenkirche in the Oldtown of Dresden in 2011 and the Hilton Berlin Hotel at Gendarmenmarkt Berlin in 2013. In 2015  the University of Cologne together with Guide Share Europe hosted the twelfth TSM Symposium at the Westin Grand Bellevue in Dresden, Germany.

In the first Quarter of 2015 the Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) family of products has been renamed to IBM Spectrum Protect as part of the IBM Spectrum Storage software products. So the next Symposium is called ISP Symposium 2017 and will take place at the Marriot Cologne Hotel located in the heart of Colgne City in walking distance to the Cologne Cathedral, the main railway station and the river Rhine.

It will have been two years since the last Symposium in Dresden took place and there will be plenty of Spectrum Protect (SP) related topics to talk about, among them "agile development" and "continous release management" as challenging subjects.

This is your chance to join us in benefiting from the innovations, the new and changed functionality in the recent and upcoming versions and to hear what is expected to be implemented in ISP over the next couple of years.

Come along and keep up with the very latest features and plans of the ISP-team within IBM, gain hints and tips on upgrading your archive and backup services, learn how to exploit the forthcoming new functionality, and acquire additional technical insight into Spectrum Protect. Take full advantage of the presentations from IBM Development, as well as contributions from other experienced and established ISP users. Best of all, meet and get to know peer professionals in an open, informal atmosphere.
