Upcoming Webinars

IntelliMagic hosts many industry leading webinars every year. Register for our upcoming webinars:

When to use, & when not to use, Machine Learning for RMF/SMF Performance, Capacity, and Availability Analysis

Time & Date: October 2nd  |  12pm Central
Length: 1 hour

This webinar is designed to help you evaluate various Artificial Intelligence-based design approaches to enable the machine to derive better performance and availability intelligence on behalf of the human analysts. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the video recording and webinar slides.

Abstract:  This complex and voluminous (but critically important!) z/OS data source contains the best infrastructure operations metrics in the data center and is a strategic advantage to the platform and your organization if we better utilize it with the power of the machine. There is a lot of AI and Machine Learning language being used everywhere, and it can be difficult to distinguish which approaches are really going to provide the biggest impact in the different pain points and business needs that exist.

How to Learn (almost anything) from RMF & SMF Data

Time & Date: August 20th  |  12pm Central
Length: 1 hour

Join this webinar to gain a vision for how rapidly you could leverage easy visibility into RMF and SMF data to expand your understanding of how the z/OS ecosystem operates. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the video recording and webinar slides.

Abstract: Imagine how much you could learn if you could explore the metrics produced by technologies that are outside your previous areas of expertise using a common intuitive user interface used across the entire mainframe platform. Consider the insights you could gain about how your environment is actually operating when you dynamically “zoom in” on a specific subset of the data to focus your analysis.

Top Performance Strategies for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and other Peak Periods

Time & Date: August 29th  |  12pm Central
Length: 1 hour

Join this live webinar as we discuss top performance strategies for preparing for and dealing with peak periods throughout the year. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the video recording and webinar slides.

Abstract: Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the two highest transaction days for many mainframe sites, while other peak periods may happen throughout the year.
However, even if you know when your biggest peaks are coming, it’s difficult to know if your infrastructure can deliver the required availability. You need an automated way to derive valuable and accurate intelligence about availability risks, so that you can show the performance and capacity teams what’s most important in all the RMF (or CMF) and SMF data for the end-to-end infrastructure.

Customer Experiences Saving MSUs Through CPC Optimization

Time & Date: September 19th  |  12pm Central
Length: 1 hour
Presenters: Frank Kyne, President, Watson and Walker, and Todd Havekost, Sr. Performance Consultant, IntelliMagic

Abstract: Join this co-hosted webinar between Watson and Walker and IntelliMagic, to learn about key cost optimization opportunities available. Reports continue to emerge of z/OS customers optimizing their CPC configurations to deliver improved performance and reduced software costs.

This webinar will use real world experiences to illustrate the relationship between processor cache, available MIPS, and software costs. Benefit from the experiences of Watson & Walker’s and IntelliMagic’s customers to learn multiple ways to achieve RNI (Relative Nest Intensity) Nirvana.

Gain Insight Into z/OS Network Security Usage and WebSphere Transactions

Time & Date: October 29th  |  12pm Central
Length: 1 hour

Join this webinar to learn how to derive more intelligence from zERT and WebSphere SMF data. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the video recording and webinar slides.

Abstract: Network encryption is a hot z/OS topic because of the importance of security in the mainframe world. This webinar will discuss and demonstrate how to use the power of the machine to derive insight into IBM’s new data for network encryption, z Encryption Readiness Technology (zERT).

For WebSphere and MQ, healthy operation is likewise mission-critical. All these components produce robust SMF metrics about their operation that are extremely valuable for IT security and operations teams but are underutilized with status quo reporting today. IntelliMagic Vision provides new visualizations and analytics to let you quickly and efficiently check their health and workload.
