System Engineer


Years in IT—
10 Years

My first mainframe job—
Console Operator at ACS

My favorite mainframe memory—
Its the great experience where I purged one of the printer job at production system and studied on the Manuals and got boosting from my boss. That day onwards I started exploring the mainframe features and joined the zSeries team.

Mainframe is changing with the need of the industry. As observing the changes since 10 years, the dinosaur is dancing year on year giving connectivity with zBX and improved capacity connectivity with blockchain and cloud offering, for example.

Its always interesting and challenging to be a mainframer, I am proud to work in this field.

My current role is SME for z/OS or MVS handling queries on the OS.
