IBM Rational Open Days
At IBM we know that your time is precious. We also know that you want to accelerate innovation, become more efficient, improve quality and reduce project costs. So we have created a series of Open Days for you to investigate how IBM Rational solutions can help you deliver on your business objectives. An Open Day is designed around a specific theme such as improving the collaboration between business, development and operations or the development of complex embedded systems. Each day is an opportunity to spend time with IBM Rational consultants exploring how each solution can satisfy your specific requirements. A series of guided activities will ensure that you explore a number of different areas of the solution, but there will also be time during the day to digress into different areas and explore your specific areas of interest.
What do previous customers think?
“The format allowed me to see the tool in action with a very hands-on approach, which was extremely beneficial for me as this was the first time I had seen the tool in its environment.” There is no cost to attend the event and complimentary tea/coffee during the morning and afternoon and a buffet lunch are provided. All events take place from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at the locations listed below. We look forward to welcoming you!

Reduce costs, minimise risk and accelerate development with 'SWIFT in a Box' - Breakfast Briefing
Date & Time: Tuesday 29th April 2014 08.00am - 10.00am
Location: 1 Cornhill, London, EC3V 3ND
Sandhata and IBM Rational present a breakfast briefing that will showcase SiaB and how it revolutionises change to your SWIFT messaging. Join us on 29 April to learn how your organisation can drastically reduce environmental costs and improve quality while accelerating development and delivery.
Places for the breakfast briefing are limited and will be allocated on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis. To secure your place at this exclusive event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cost avoidance is key to competitive advantage and financial strategy across transaction banking. Sandhata’s ‘Swift in a Box’ (SiaB) offers complete agility across your software development lifecycle (SDLC) for handling any SWIFT changes for all asset classes and message types. The solution allows instantaneous creation and deployment of SWIFT environments enabling testing to be completed at a fraction of the cost and time, mitigating risk and accelerating change. Could your transaction systems incorporate a new currency or regulatory change and continue trading within a matter of hours? SiaB facilitates innovative testing of new functionality, behaviour and logic without complexity - the key to deriving value from change.
|08:00 – 08:30||Welcome, registration and refreshments|
|08:30 – 09:00||Presentation: SiaB – Making SWIFT Change EasyPresenter: Gary Thornhill, General Manager, Sandhata Technologies|
