Der Mainframe ist und bleibt für viele Unternehmen weiterhin eine kritische Komponente der IT-Infrastruktur, um z.B. Geschäftsprozesse effizient abzuwickeln und milliarden kritischer Transaktionen zu verarbeiten. Aktuell erlebt der Mainframe einen Generationswechsel: die Profis gehen nach und nach in den Ruhestand während Millennials als zukünftige „Mainframe-Experten“ nachrücken. Egal ob auf dem firmeneigenen Mainframe, ausgelagert zu einem Service Provider oder in der zCloud, es werden fortlaufend Änderungen an Tools, Dienstprogrammen und Anwendungen angefordert, die zur Ausführung von Funktionen innerhalb von Performance Management und JCL-Konfiguration benötigt werden.
Erfahren Sie in unserem ASG-Webinar, warum diese Änderungen unvermeidbar sind, was sie für die Mainframe Administration bedeuten und wie diesen Anforderungen begegnet werden muss.

Mike Mahon, CEO, Zia & Ryan McVeigh, Managing Partner and VP of Sales, Zia
Digital transformation is no longer considered a laborious never-ending project or a luxury only large corporations can afford. In today’s environment, undergoing a digital transformation is essential for all to stay competitive, maintain compliance and future-proof your organization. The good news is that many companies can greatly benefit from maximizing their current software investments and integrating with existing systems along their digital transformation journey.
Join Zia CEO, Mike Mahon and Zia Managing Partner, Ryan McVeigh as they explore five strategies for maximizing your content services investments through customer case studies and real-world examples. They address multiple industries including insurance, mortgage and manufacturing as they discuss transformational tools for:
- Records Management
- Enterprise Integration
- Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Dennis McLaughlin, VP, Operations & Product Management, ibi
Your enterprise has made investments in systems, whether in CRM, supply chain management (SCM), ERP, data warehouses or other applications. Your company depends on these systems and the automation they provide to run your business. But what about the information that lives outside of these systems, and in many cases outside of your firewall? Data contained in other databases, spreadsheets and computer-based files—coupled with external data—are used by customers and employees but combining these data sources with internal systems can generate trust issues with the data. They can’t be depended on for accuracy or purpose because they haven’t been treated with the same rigor that’s been applied to the data in your systems of record.
ibi and ASG Technologies have developed a process to enable trust in previously unvetted data along with the automation to implement that process.
You need to measure the quality of the data for your key business metrics. These data quality measures can have multiple dimensions, such as completeness, accuracy, consistency, etc. These measures are documented in ASG Data Intelligence and the technical measurement is performed weekly, monthly, etc. in OmniGen with the results passed back to ASG to provide a data quality dashboard so you can see how the quality of these key business metrics are trending.
Data lineage is also key. Data lineage enables users to see where a field came from, and with our partnership with ASG you can easily see that lineage in your dashboards and reports making your decisions more informed based on data your trust.
Dr. Cameron Seay, Ph.D., Adjunct Instructor, East Carolina University & Jeff Cherrington, VP, Product Management, ASG
For over 60 years, COBOL has been the foundational computer programming language for large enterprises and government agencies that run business-critical applications on the mainframe. While COBOL will continue to be essential in the long term for these organizations, most companies and agencies are in desperate need of COBOL programmers, as became more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In their fireside chat, Dr. Cameron Seay, enterprise systems thought leader and adjunct professor at East Carolina University, will join Jeff Cherrington, VP of Product Management at ASG, to discuss the role of COBOL in the global enterprise, the opportunities available to next-generation technology professionals, and how organizations and education systems can better support educational and professional paths into mainframe application development.
Will Murphy, VP, Business Development, BigID & Greg Wilson, Director, Content Strategies, ASG Technologies
Collaboration has transformed the modern enterprise. However, the proliferation of collaboration platforms, combined with the sprawl of personal and sensitive data across these platforms and the advent of global privacy regulations has forced companies to fall back on centralization in order to secure this data. Unfortunately, this strategy neither ensures compliance and security nor enables collaboration. A new approach is needed.
Will Murphy and Greg Wilson share their insights on how to pave the road to reducing privacy risk and automating compliance requirements for content and files, including:
• How best to bring outlying documents and ‘dark data’ into your governance practice
• Methods to extend information governance and data privacy to shared drives, SharePoint and O365
• Best practices for automating migration, legal holds, redaction and disposition policies based on classification insights
• How to leverage personal information knowledge for CCPA, GDPR data access and deletion rights fulfillment
Michael McNea, IT Lead Metadata, Micron Technology
Organizations are inundated with data. To realize its value, organizations must first understand the data that they are collecting. With an automated inventory of data, users can quickly find out what data they have, where it is, where it’s from, who has touched it and how it has transformed. This knowledge, especially about personal information, is critical to establishing trust and complying with data privacy regulations.
In this session, Micron Technology details the fundamentals of coordinating and implementing a high-volume scanning operation to update 1.6M tables, over 9K ETL jobs and almost 20K reports at peak efficiency. Michael McNea will take you through the nuts and bolts of Micron’s data environment, inventory and workload automation, architecture design and other steps.

Mariano Gadea, Lead IS Solution Architect, PMI & Daniel Eduardo Tavella Rossi, Senior IS Analyst, PMI
Cloud-based systems and applications are increasingly popular across enterprises in all industries today. According to the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report 73% of organizations plan to optimize their use of cloud this year, making it the top technology initiative for the fourth year in a row. Phillip Morris International (PMI) is one of those organizations. Watch this session to hear about PMI’s journey to the cloud and how Mobius Content Services is playing a key role in that journey.
Vinay Jha, EVP and CDO, Citizens Bank & James Varkey, SVP, Data Management, Citizens Bank
As the pace of business transformation accelerates, ad hoc initiatives around data management aren’t enough for sustainable success. What’s needed is a data strategy built on timely access to trusted data supporting a wide spectrum of traditional and rapidly evolving business needs.
This same data foundation has helped Citizens to quickly comply with regulatory requirements in the highly regulated financial industry, including GLBA, CCPA, privacy initiatives, the upcoming retirement of the LIBOR exchange rate and more.
You will emerge from the session with a fresh perspective of how a foundation built on trusted data can empower defensive use cases to run the business and ensure compliance, while also driving innovation and digital transformation throughout the enterprise.
Ann Snyder, Manager, Content Development, ARMA International & im Maguire, VP, Strategic Content Solutions, ASG Technologies
Information governance (IG) is not a one and done effort. To fully enable your information to be a useful asset and reduced liability, it must be effectively governed throughout its lifecycle. But, often, IG projects are executed in silos or as single point in time/one-off efforts.
Have you encountered any of these scenarios?
- You’ve updated your policies and trained your employees on handling sensitive information. Are you sure they understood the policy and are complying? What if you could identify and correct policy deviations as they occurred?
- You’ve done a massive data remediation project, cleaning up file shares and data stores. Have people resorted to the habits that led to the cleanup? What if you could keep your information stores tidy and avoid a costly redo of the remediation?
- You’ve performed a data reconciliation as part of a one-off cleanup or of a periodic reconciliation. Are the same errors and inconsistencies still cropping up? What if you could catch and clean these things in real time, improve the quality and reliability of your information and reduce the burden of manual reconciliation?
Continuous auditing and analytics can help you do all the above (and more). By monitoring your information and alerting you when there are policy deviations or data inconsistencies, continuous auditing and analytics can help you address these issues in real time.
Watch this session and you’ll learn how to use continuous auditing and analytics to monitor and improve compliance, identify and correct data inconsistencies in real time, improve efficiency, reduce the need for one-off cleanup efforts and gain insight into your data.
In a post-WikiLeaks world, data privacy requests are growing as people worry about companies and agencies storing privately identifiable information (PII). Privacy laws such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) are posing numerous challenges to entities that store and manage PII. The freedom of information laws that enable citizens to request disclosure of information require governments and organizations to be open to the public, while adhering to these strict privacy laws. Companies and agencies who collect, process and store PII are struggling to remain compliant with regulations and remain open to people’s requests to access their data quickly, easily, and cost-effectively. Citizens/consumers can now ask a company to disclose and delete any PII that the company owns on the citizen/consumer. The challenge with data privacy requests is that companies and organizations will need to be able to quickly search through all their data, find all PII pertaining to a specific individual and send the requested information to the requester. If the requester demands that this data be deleted, the company will need to have the capability to delete the data completely. ArkCase, powered by ASG Mobius Content Services, offers organizations a data privacy management solution that will receive, process and respond to requests from citizens/consumer for data disclosure, while following the strict legal frameworks dictated by GDPR, CCPA, FOIA and others.

With the retirement of LIBOR rates in Dec. 2021, financial institutions are scrambling to understand their LIBOR usage risk and exposure and accelerate plans to transition to new interest rates. Most organizations have made good headway in remediating contracts; however, as they turn to data management challenges, they have quickly discovered that updating their rate models is more than a find-and-replace exercise.
To transition to alternative reference rates, organizations must first execute a comprehensive inventory of their data – where are the data assets and how will they be affected? Next, that data must be contextualized – what lines of business do they fall under and how much exposure will they incur? Finally, it must be evaluated – how do you calculate that risk, how is it modelled, how will a new offering rate alter that risk calculation and how can that data be transformed into the correct format?
Learn how leading financial institutions are tackling this massive effort—not just as a one-off, manual costly effort—but as an opportunity to enhance data management processes, improve data quality and leverage data intelligence to spark innovation and enable automated, cost-effective responses to evolving compliance mandates in the highly regulated financial services industry.

L’augmentation des coûts et le déficit de compétences Mainframe qui atteint un niveau préoccupant poussent les entreprises à évaluer une démarche de réduction de l’empreinte Mainframe.
Par la rationalisation, la migration, le ré-hébergement, il est possible de réduire les coûts d'exploitation des applications grâce au transfert de certains services Mainframe tels que la gestion de contenu (archives, données du Legacy, etc…) vers des plateformes distribuées.
Décommissionner, c’est réduire de manière conséquente les MIPS, et donc les coûts, valoriser les services sans compromettre la fiabilité et la sécurité.
Fort de plusieurs dizaines d'années d'expérience en environnement Mainframe et leader dans la gestion de contenu avec la solution Mobius, ASG vous propose de découvrir lors de ce webinaire comment amorcer ce type de démarche autour de vos applications de gestion de contenu.
Vous découvrirez au cours de ce webinaire :
- Pourquoi réduire l’empreinte Mainframe ? Et comment ?
- Quels en sont les freins ?
- La technologie de migration Mobius Mainframe
- Des cas d'usages réussis dans la banque et les assurances
Participez à ce webinaire pour comprendre pourquoi et comment libérer les ressources Mainframe et améliorer les processus de modernisation et de numérisation dans votre entreprise.
