About this talk

For many companies the mainframe is and will remain a critical component of the IT infrastructure, e.g. to run business processes efficiently and process billions of critical transactions. Did you know that: - of the world's top 100 banks, 92 use the mainframe for their core business. - The mainframe plays a central role in 23 of the world's largest retail groups. - The 10 largest insurance companies use the mainframe as a strategic platform. - 80% of the world's critical business data still resides on the mainframe. - 85% of total credit card transaction volume is still traded on the mainframe. - Mainframes handle 68% of the workload of all global IT production, but the cost represents only 6% of total IT costs. Currently, the mainframe is undergoing a generational change. Experienced professionals are gradually retiring while millennials are moving up as the future "mainframe experts". Whether on the on-premises mainframe, or in the Cloud, there is a requirement for changes to tools, utilities and applications needed to run mainframes, now and in the future. Learn why these changes are inevitable, what they mean for mainframe administration and how these requirements need to be addressed in our ASG webinar.
