IBM i Education: COMMON NAViGATE 2022 – Come and Meet Silveredge Consulting!

September 8th, 2022

Fall is just around the corner and so is the COMMON NAViGATE 2022 Conference! This year’s conference is in St. Louis, MO from October 3rd through 5th. If you’re involved in IBM i in any way, this is the place to be!


The COMMON NAViGATE 2022 Conference features nearly 40 speakers presenting over 100+ sessions covering over 20 areas of focus to help your company get the most from your investment in the IBM i system and for you to advance your IT skills and career.

In addition, there’ll be sessions to enhance your technical skills, such as: Database; DevOps; Hardware; High Availability Resilience; IFS;  Programming (General, Node, PHP, Python, RPG, and UI);  Security; Systems Management; and Virtualization.

As always, there will be courses to improve your some other less tactical skills, such as Client Connectivity; Developing Business Skills; IT Strategy; Networking; and Personal Development. Participants can focus on a single area or participate in sessions from multiple areas, whichever option best fits your needs.

Think of all the networking opportunities! During this year’s conference, you have lots of chances during breaks, lunches, dinners, and the expo segments to talk with the guest instructors, vendors, and your peers in a personal and highly educational setting.


This year’s EXPO is going to be even more exciting this year! At EXPO, you can meet with IBM i vendors including Silveredge. Our consultants would love it if you’d stop by and say hi! Register for our raffle and let us know where we can help! Chances are – we’ve done that!

We can’t wait to see you there!

RPG & DB2 Spring 2020 Summit: Cancelled

March 18th, 2020

We have  been informed by the conference organizers that they will not hold the Summit in Dallas from March 24th – 26th as scheduled.  We’re sure this must have been a difficult decision for Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy.  The System i Developer folks care deeply about the iSeries community and we know this must have been a hard choice to make, but the right one for sure.

But stay tuned! When we learn any new details, you’ll be the first to hear about them!
