Evangelizing Mainframe

Sign up for the first Dz Webinar on June 5

The first Destination z webinar (presented in conjunction with IBM Systems Magazine) is scheduled for 11 a.m. CDT Wednesday, June 5. It will feature Bryan Foley, program director, IBM System z Stack Portfolio Management, and Innes Read, enterprise architect, Strategy, TCO, IBM Software Group.

The webinar, titled “IBM Experts Answer Questions About the Modern Mainframe,” was developed based on input from the mainframe community. In February, Destination z sought mainframers’ input on what questions they’d like to ask IBM about the platform. After dozens of submissions on the Destination z Forum and via email, some clear patterns emerged about what’s front of mind for members of the community.

For example, many asked about the future of the mainframe in IT trends like mobile, cloud computing and Linux. Others had questions about the TCA and TCO of System z compared to other server platforms.

To help answer these questions, we sought input from IBM experts. In addition to Foley and Read, other key IBMers stepped up to answer particularly specific or technical questions in the forum itself. The Destination z editorial team is also working on developing articles and blog posts to address those topics that couldn’t be covered in a 60-minute webinar.

To register for that webinar, check out the IBM Systems Magazine Event Center.

Mike Westholder is site editor of IBM Destinationz.org.
