Datacenter.com, a channel-focused provider of colocation services, has launched its IT-management, interactive ‘Lunch & Learn’ series – being held in Datacenter.com’s flagship data centre in Amsterdam.

The first series of free-to-attend Lunch & Learn seminars are announced in joint partnership with IBM, of which the first event will take place on 18 October 2018. IBM’s CTO for the Benelux market, Gerard Smit, will then share his vision and elaborate on IBM’s ‘5 in 5’ technology predictions.
 
Datacenter.com sees knowledge sharing as an integral way to help partners successfully build their businesses on Datacenter.com’s colocation infrastructure with ample connectivity options available. The company’s Lunch & Learn series events are open to anyone interested in the topics covered.
 
IBM’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg, Gerard Smit, will be the first high profile executive to be appearing at Datacenter.com’s English language Lunch & Learn event on Thursday 18 October 2018.

In line with IBM’s ‘5 in 5’ technology predictions, Smit will share his global vision on topics such as blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), quantum computing, and more. Mr. Smit will interactively provide his predictions and share his opinions.

“These free-to-attend Lunch & Learn seminars are intended to be small-scale, high-level knowledge sharing events where managers and experts will get the opportunity to interactively learn, while sharing their market visions and know-how,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com.

“IBM is a great partner for kicking-off our Lunch & Learn series of events, as they have a wealth of knowledge available and superb technological solutions for addressing market challenges. We’ve planned to do several Lunch & Learn seminars with IBM, but also with other partners that will take the stage.”
