Save some time; Join May Mainframe Madness

It’s almost May again.

It’s almost May again. And as a Mainframer, this means that by reserving a few hours in your diary, you will be completely up-to-date again with all the latest and greatest about the CA Technologies Mainframe products you work with daily. And also on those that you do not work with (yet)….

Apart from the latest strategy, features and functions that can help you to do your job more efficient and peers telling about their experiences, we will again bring you other very interesting topics. One speaker alone will make registering worthwhile; Dr. Howard Rubin.
His session “Rubin’s Law (and Why IT Spending is About to Hit the Wall)”, promises to be very interesting. For those of you who do not know Dr. Howard Rubin, you can find all about him and his work here.

And in preparation for this session, you may want to read his work on the cost effectiveness of mainframes here and here. Both works are a MUST read for everybody who is regularly asked to “defend” the mainframe.

Apart from this, we will have a client talking about how they achieved massive increases in DB2 throughput, sessions with IBM, Mainframe & Cloud, an interview with Bob Thomas (founder of MainframeZone, zJournal and Enterprise Executive), the latest and greatest on Chorus and lots, lots more.

If you want to see the full agenda, please register here: or (if you are just looking for more information) on:

Hope to see you there in May….

    This is great. Hooray for Disney’s imagineers!


    become a new brand in the share market research with its accurate research. Proven
    itself always right whether market is bull or bear. Last week all paid clients
    booked handsome profit in NIFTY, BANKINIFTY & STOCKS. Now for the coming
    week we expect more correction can come in NIFTY as the IRAQ issue is getting
    more tense, If it happens more then you will see a sharp fall in all world marketNSE BSE, STOCK TIPSbecause as we know all world run on
    crude & most of the crude comes from IRAQ. So be ready for a sharp fall so
    sell will be the best strategy for next week also. Traders can make a sell
    position in NIFTY around 7600-7650 with stoploss 7750 for the target of
    7300-7200.One can also make a sell call NIFTY 50 stocks as per NIFTY levels. You

    This is a good case study. 2.3 sec’s off a login transaction is big.

    While the analysts were hyping DevOps, I posted the oversight of not including security as part of that discussion as you are highlighting here. Instead of just talking DevOps, it should be DOS (what’s old is new again :-) – DevOpsSec. As a previous AppDev person, it’s the app, who’s using it, why and where rather than the device and having the service available.

    As you rightly point, out Security should be baked into the solution.

    Nice Post and Timely!

      Thank you for your feedback Michele. Agreed – security cannot be overlooked. Appreciate your input!

    I love the idea of BYOID! This makes me choose if I am almost anonymous (with my Hotmail Nicname) or official with identity from an official organisation. My Identity Provider will attach identity with right level of LoA according to the need of the Service provider.

      Thank you for your comment. BYOID has tangible benefits for end users and relying parties but it also has to be weighed in the balance with potential risks and liability concerns. It will be interesting to see how BYOID plays out in the enterprise.
