Best practices on modernizing and optimizing mainframe technology
Examine how leveraging mainframe technology is crucial to an effective business IT strategy. You’ll learn best practices for modernizing and optimizing your mainframe to help you reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, empower the next-generation of mainframers and increase business agility through integrations and innovations.
Who's Going To Manage My Mainframe?Troy L. Coleman, Senior Product Manager for Mainframe at CA TechnologiesOver the course of the last 15-20 years, “industry experts” have been proclaiming the death of the mainframe. The reality is that the mainframe continues to thrive and grow and house the majority of the world’s most critical business data.
The real issue we are beginning to experience is a shortage of skills for managing the mainframe. Mainframe DBAs are aging and retiring and new talent is not being trained quick enough. The new generation of IT professionals has a completely different way of thinking and working. The i(Pad,Pod, and Phone) generation has no interest in the acronyms TSO or ISPF. In order for these up and coming professionals to manage the mainframe they will require a new toolset geared towards their way of thinking.
In this webcast, we’ll provide real life examples of z/OS systems management for the next gen mainframer. We’ll also discuss how an integrated role based workspace can help you simply and effectively manage tasks like identifying DB2 performance bottlenecks or performing complex migrations.Read more >
Thanks to cloud, big data, and mobility many enterprise IT workloads are becoming more volatile and less predictable than ever before. Traditional workload management strategies based on predefined processing timelines, workflows and processing patterns are no longer able to keep up with constant real time changes to priorities, volumes, and workflows.
Join us for a fireside chat with Mary Johnston Turner, IDC Research Vice President Enterprise Systems Management Software, and Louis Vandenberg, Automation Strategist Nike Inc, to understand how they expect requirements for workload management to evolve during 2013 and beyond.
You will learn why a new approach is needed to:
•Optimize IT resource utilization and workload performance
•Improve IT staff productivity
•Thrive in a more responsive and competitive business environment.

Linux on System z offers significant opportunities for cost savings and IT efficiencies through server consolidation. But can you quickly recover Linux on System z applications, systems and data in case of corruption via software errors, accidental deletion, or disasters? What if there was a way you could provide mainframe-strength business resilience for your Linux on System z workloads? Discover how you can use your existing z/OS disaster recovery infrastructure to backup and restore data using to UPSTREAM for Linux on System z. Also learn about integrating with your existing CA operations management solutions to help further optimize IT efficiency and reduce costs.
Worried that you can’t find good mainframe IT talent these days? You are not alone.
College graduates with mainframe skills are in short supply and mainframe pioneers are preparing to depart the workplace, forcing IT executives to face the challenge of a shrinking mainframe workforce. What you need is an intelligent way to modernize, optimize and simplify mainframe management to preserve critical mainframe expertise developed over decades, plus shorten the on-ramp for novice IT staff to manage your most critical platform.
Learn from industry experts how you can simplify and streamline mainframe management tasks, increase staff productivity, and facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing so you can more effectively reduce the cost and complexity of managing mission-critical mainframe workloads well into the 21st Century.
This webinar examines the state of mainframe skills as the centerpiece of an effective business IT strategy and CA Technologies' strategy to greatly improve the efficiency of your entire IT staff so they can more effectively assume mainframe responsibilities.
As you move workloads to Linux on System z, would you like the ability to detect and resolve Linux on System z performance problems before users even notice?

Mainframes are still the workhorse of the Enterprise. Taking a look at the transaction as the “center of gravity” and understanding the end-to-end application ecosystem are critical to the success of your business. In this session, Julie Craig from Enterprise Management Associates will explore this topic and explain why CA Technologies is positioned to meet the needs of cross-enterprise application performance management so it doesn’t manage your business.
