The software, tools, and processes used to win, serve, and retain customers will become critical to the success of the organization in what Forrester identifies as today’s ‘age of the customer’. Those who will succeed are agile, proactive, and best able to deal with this disruption in the status quo of business. One of the issues a business must incorporate into its strategy for success is why and when to modern existing IT solutions.
Commissioned by CA Technologies, Forrester Consulting research evaluated the impact of software modernization, or lack thereof, on a number of key business metrics, such as revenue growth, profitability, and product and application development cycles time. The goal of the research was to inquire about the level of modernization across a number of classes of enterprise software and to explore the correlation between leaders and laggards in modernization and high and low business performers.
Forrester’s study yielded a number of both expected and counterintuitive findings. This webinar presents key findings and resulting five key planning recommendations.

Over 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 mainframe. 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.

IT organizations are constantly challenged to improve rapid delivery of critical business services. They need to predict the needs of business processes and systems to deliver better quality of service to end users and lines of business. But achieving success can be difficult without the right combination of automation and technology to extract and analyze business and operational intelligence.
Workload Automation predictive analytics can help IT take command of rapid business change in today’s Dynamic Data Centers. IT can Extract & analyze operational and performance intelligence to help lines of business grow through better service. IT can better understand the impact to the business, not just to the IT infrastructure.
During this webcast, you will hear a panel of data center experts discuss their business and operational challenges they are facing, and how workload automation predictive analytics is helping them to anticipate business demands and differentiate their dynamic Data Centers through automated alerts to potential problems before they impact business.
“Do more with less” is something you and your management often hear. And you cope, you work a bit harder, you skip some things that have a priority other than “critical” and you cope. But there are moments where you and others in your company can’t cope anymore, and something has got to give.
Why spend 20+ hours to test a new version of your DB2 database, a bug fix or enhanced version of a new application and even a new version of your z/OS if you can do 80% of the testing in 10 hours? Or maybe even 5 hours? Unfortunately, Murphy does not have to do more with less. And the “other” 20% of you and/or your end-users who did NOT test will cause problems costing more than you have saved by less testing. Testing must be rigorous and it should reflect REAL production behavior 100%.
Automation is the only answer to this. Join us for a one hour session to see how YOU can start using the latest money saving features in DB2 months earlier for 30% or the cost testing takes you today! Or how YOU can be 100% sure the new version of your OS behaves exactly like your previous version.
Maintaining currency of your DB2 environments is a never ending process. IBM releases a new version of DB2 for z/OS approximately every three years, often leading IT to the questions “when?” and “how?” A constant planning cycle is required to prepare your environments for upgrades. Without proper planning you may run the risk of falling behind on releases and running an unsupported version of DB2 for z/OS.
Join Vikram Krishnan, DB2 for z/OS Team Lead at Transunion on January 29th at 11am ET as he shares his experience migrating from DB2 9 to DB2 10, including the obstacles and challenges that were overcome.
You’ll also learn best practices to:
•plan and prepare for your upgrade
•help reduce upgrade costs
•better mitigate risk associated with upgrades
