Speaker Bio:
Mitch Hoffman has helped IT Professionals solve critical business issues using software solutions for over 20 years, mainly in Middle Tennessee.  Business-and-regulatory initiatives (like SOX, HIPPA, GLBA, SAS70, PCI, even Y2K) plus IT innovations have brought massive changes in how IT Departments work since the 90’s.  Mitch has worked with his clients to construct and solve IT challenges such as ALM & DevOps, BI & Analytics, Cloud/Outsourcing, Application Development, platform Modernization, SDLC Automation, Security/Network Mgt, ITAM/ITSM, and more.  Mitch has worked for Platinum Technology, Quest Software, SoftBase Systems, and currently Rocket Software/Aldon (Change and Release Management Software).   Mitch currently serves on the Board of Directors of IMUG, and spends as much of his free time as possible with his family while living in the country, South of Nashville. 

Presentation Outline:
Learn industry trends on the IBM i from a grass-roots perspective! Mitch will discuss trends around the IBM i /AS400 that impact IT organizations, personnel and their budgets today. Top development and operations trends that are important to pay attention to, including vendors and products, key applications and platform usage, common challenges seen across organizations and even some history of the platform and how that is likely to influence future application life-cycles.  This will not be a highly technical presentation, but a presentation that will equip you to inform executives about what’s happening with your IBM i / AS400 and you won’t want to miss out. 

Elections for Officers and Board Members will follow the presentation.
