    • Who's Going To Manage My Mainframe? Who's Going To Manage My Mainframe? Troy L. Coleman, Senior Product Manager for Mainframe at CA Technologies Recorded: Jun 11 2013 3:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • 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 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.

    • McAfee and MEAS present:  How do you know your mainframe is secure? McAfee and MEAS present: How do you know your mainframe is secure? Mike Epplin, SE McAfee and Bob Fake, CTO DG Technologies Recorded: Oct 7 2014 5:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    • Companies that rely on Mainframes invest tremendous amounts of time and manual efforts checking compliance and proving that the mainframe is safe. Traditional approaches to security on the Mainframe are different from other platforms and in the past required advanced skills and knowledge that are unique to the platform. However, with cloud, mobile and other new initiatives the Mainframe is exposed to additional threats that did not exist in the past and requires new techniques to ensure the mainframe is protected. It is no longer is possible or acceptable to rely on legacy manual processes or older in-house written programs to prove compliance and ensure the platform is safe and compliant. During our session we will discuss new approaches to compliance checking and security controls monitoring .

      Key Take Aways

      1.Why do the legacy approaches need to change?
      2.What are the new approaches?
      3.Why ESM and MEAS help with the new approach?
      4.The mainframe is no longer “negotiable” in terms of security and compliance
      5.Outdated in-house processes are not reliable and create risk of security and compliance failure
      6.For companies that have mainframes, it is the most mission critical platform in the infrastructure

    • Business-Savvy Business Continuity for the Agile Mainframe Data Center Business-Savvy Business Continuity for the Agile Mainframe Data Center Jon Toigo Recorded: Oct 16 2014 4:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Agile has become the buzzword for the contemporary corporate IT vision. Agile vendors argue that high availability is baked into their latest technologies and architecture, reducing requirements for disaster recovery and business continuity planning going forward. This Brown Bag Webinar, hosted by IT-SENSE.org editor, Jon Toigo, evaluates that claim by examining the veracity of the underlying assumptions and setting forth an outline of the requirements for achieving the levels of operational continuity that are the foundation of truly agile data center services. Toigo walks us through the myths of agile high availability and the requirements for business-savvy business continuity in the modern mainframe data center. Then, in the Between Two LUNs segment, Toigo interviews Rebecca Levesque, CEO of 21st Century Software, a mainframe continuity evangelist whose company provides the tools to deliver a dependable disaster recovery capability in the dynamic mainframe data center. Finishing out the session will be a Q&A period in which your questions for Toigo and Levesque will be fielded and resolved.
