In today’s age of ‘app’ proliferation and data overload in most areas of z/OS infrastructure performance, one would think we would have access to endless statistics on application behavior. While this is largely true in the distributed space, it remains an elusive goal in our beloved mainframe.

The simple fact is distributed application programmers and mainframe system folks speak very different languages (when they speak to each other at all). DDF transactions don’t ‘look’ like CICS transactions – but they are both important to the business.

In this session, John Baker and Gabe Tully try to break down the barriers between z/OS and distributed systems and communicate specific methods both sides can use to classify workloads properly.
