The Inforge Academy was founded at the beginning of 2018 to fill a desperate need in the Business Intelligence tooling industry. A need that technical users of the IBM Information Server platform know all to well.

There are simply no online resources focused on training individuals in the mastery of the IBM Information Server platform.

The Inforge Academy is committed to fulfill this need by providing the most succinct, detailed, real world, user focused, logically‐phased‐and‐stepped technical instruction guides and online courses that exist on the internet today.

Hi, welcome to my site.


From my experience – at least in the countries I have worked in – when it comes to the Information Server platform, there is always one of a small set of topologies chosen when installing this information management suite of tools, along with reoccurring themes in the component options chosen.

It is the intent of this website to take all of the knowledge gained in the installation, usage and training of the Information Server platform – over a decade, multiple countries, multiple operating system platforms – and distill that knowledge into into incredibly detailed and easy to understand tomes or lectures.

IBM Information Server is a vast and complicated platform, and subject. I’ve taken the approach of breaking this subject as a whole into easy to digest modules of intent. Whether it’s via the – still to be launched – online training courses or my offline training PDF guides. All is presented in modules: Base installation guides, Post Installation guides, DataStage developer training, and so on.

You only download the specific guide or lecture that covers the specific topic that you need.
