How can you integrate new technologies into your mainframe future?


Published on

In this session, we will discuss the critical role of mainframe computing as the unseen backbone of business critical environments. We will share how traditional mainframe disciplines, including BS2000, VME Services, Third Party Mainframe Services and Data Center Management and Automation, can be integrated with new technologies such as Hybrid Mainframe, Security, Cloud Computing, Edge Computing, AI, Blockchain, Data Management, DevOps and Automation to create high performance infrastructure solutions.
