Special Report: Mainframe Skills

Mainframe clients find help from IBM and others to mitigate the effects of a skills shortage

8/17/2015 3:29:38 PM | The IT industry and organizations deploying IBM mainframes are not immune to a rapidly aging workforce. IBM Systems Magazine in collaboration with SHARE, conducted a survey of more than 1,400 IT professionals centered around systems analyst/programmers, IT management, database administrators and other management staff. Respondents agreed that the mainframe skills gap exists and is growing. IBM, SHARE and others are stepping up to the plate to ensure organizations have the mainframe talent they need to keep their workloads on the z Systems platform by offering ways to help shrink that gap.

To learn more about the survey results, as well as the ways in which the mainframe community is addressing the skills shortage, view the mainframe skills special report online.
