Presented by

Peter Fandel, Senior Director of Mainframe Open Source and Zowe, Rocket Software

About this talk

Organizations are modernizing their z/OS technology and their workforce as much to reduce costs as to build new advanced capabilities. Most are using open-source software (OSS) in their modernization initiatives but are quickly realizing the hidden cost and risk associated with adopting community tools that are not commercially supported. Join Peter Fandel as he takes a deeper look at the value proposition associated with using commercially supported OSS in mission-critical environments, like IBM Z.
