How Mainframe Performance Teams are Solving Their Skills Gap Challenges [zAcademy #44]

Date: March 23
Time: 2 PM ET  |  1 PM CT

There are few mainframe teams who don’t have experienced personnel closing in on (or already surpassing) retirement age. These tenured staff members are often the last line of defense supporting legacy home-grown reporting tooling. Yet staff shortages and demanding workloads combine to minimize the success rate of skills transfer initiatives, however well-intentioned.

Without the ability to retain experts to maintain in-house tooling and to interpret the increasingly complex metrics, the likelihood of avoidable service disruptions and their related business impacts increases significantly.

Attendees of this webinar can expect to learn proven strategies being leveraged by companies to optimize mainframe availability and performance.
