Join us at IBM Think 2018


We’re proud to be taking Simulcation on the road this month.

From 19-22 March, we’ll be at booth 128 at IBM Think 2018. Come and visit us to try your hand at our simulation for yourself. We’ll be giving away prizes every hour, culminating in a grand prize for whoever tops our leaderboard at the end of the conference.

We’ll have live demonstrations available so you can experience the power of Simulcation Datacenter first-hand, as well as members of the team ready to discuss your e-learning requirements.


Experience the value of leading architecture in action


Simulcation Datacenter is a revolutionary simulation, where IT staff, sales teams and CIOs can connect whilst practising their responses to everyday datacenter challenges. Experience cutting edge IT infrastructure and gain insight before making real-world decisions.

Engaging and fun, you’ll experiment to find the optimum mix of hardware, software and services, and see the ongoing impact of your choices played out in terms of profitability and customer satisfaction.


We’re also preparing to launch contests, incentivizing team-wide participation through ten weeks of exciting prizes centered around a competitive mission.


We believe it’s the future of learning. Come and see us at booth 128, or email info@simulcation.com to book a test-drive.

The future of education is in use



We’re proud that IBM is using Simulcation Datacenter to train its top sales executives and Business Partners, and we wanted to bring you more of their reactions from recent events.

Held in Killarney, Ireland and Bratislava, Slovakia in October, the training sessions gathered together IBMers and Business Partners to discuss the latest IBM services and processes. Delegates at both events were given the opportunity to experience Simulcation Datacenter – our ground-breaking datacenter simulation – for the first time. Combining gamification and simulation to make education more engaging, it’s built on the science that says learning through experience leads to more capable, confident professionals.

Mission Possible

We set the delegates a special mission. Starting with a virtual datacenter in trouble, they had to work to identify where the problems were, before implementing the right mix of additional services and architecture to bring back stability. They could then race to see who could boost their virtual organization’s revenue the most in the remaining timeframe.

They were given half an hour to compete for the top spot on the mission leader board, and we were thrilled to hear how competitive it got. Having ‘got the bug’, many delegates wanted longer to continue their gameplay. After such intense competition, it was great to hear very positive feedback about the app’s capabilities, including:

Simulcation Datacenter really helped me to understand what the kit I’m supporting does!

Designed as a way to bring leading architecture and services education to life, we’re immensely proud to see Simulcation Datacenter being used so successfully. Beat Erb, IBM’s TSS Channel Sales Leader – IOT Europe, told us: ‘the simulation has made tremendous progress, and is now ready to be permanently integrated into IBM TSS education.’

So, what’s next?

We’re working on creating more missions, adding variety and more difficulty levels to make them even more challenging. They’ll then be made accessible as part of our roll-out to IBM and IBM Business Partners across Europe.


About Simulcation

We believe learning shouldn’t be laborious. Simulcation Datacenter is an engaging, competitive environment that simulates the complex challenges faced on a daily basis by IT infrastructure professionals. Preregister now to be one of the first to experience it – and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to hear more.

IBM uses Simulcation Datacenter in top training sessions


We’re excited to announce that IBM has been using Simulcation Datacenter in training sessions with IBM European sales teams and Business Partners. Competing against one another at events in Killarney, Ireland and Bratislava, Slovakia a few weeks ago, delegates had to identify the optimum mix of datacenter components and services in one of our nail-biting missions. Here’s a taste of how they got on:


Originally devised as a way to bring a section of IBM training to life, Simulcation Datacenter has evolved into an engaging, competitive learning environment that pushes the boundaries of professional education. Users are able to virtually experiment with real life infrastructure and services – and can see the impact of their decisions play out as they compete for virtual global domination. A fusion of cutting edge gamification and simulation technologies, we believe it’s the future of learning for IT professionals, sales teams and students.
