Mainframe Virtual Summit: Mission essentials in the app economy

Five reasons to attend Mainframe Virtual Summit – Mission Essentials in the App Economy – as experts talk about the evolving role of mainframe in the digital world.

On July 20 a cast of IT experts will participate in a unique Mainframe Virtual Summit to discuss how digital disrupters are having success using mainframe as an enabler of digital transformation, covering the best practices they’ve implemented, the challenges they’ve faced and the benefits and results they’ve captured.

Here are five reasons why this is an event that every mainframer should be a part of:

  1. See how you compare

This is an excellent opportunity to see how your enterprise compares with leading mainframe organizations, as Ashok Reddy and Matt Eastwood discuss how these organizations are maximizing the value of their mainframe investments and leveraging the platforms as part of a comprehensive digital transformation initiative.

In this panel IDC will be presenting results from their recent State of the Market survey on Mainframe, while Ashok will be sharing his insights from the 100’s of customer meetings he’s participated in since joining CA as the General Manager of the Mainframe business unit in November.

  1. Think agile, think mainframe

Thought the Mainframe was old, slow and inflexible? Think again. Today’s high performing organizations are able to prioritize the highest-value initiatives, reduce work-in-process bottlenecks and continually optimize investment, all by using the power of the Mainframe.

Truly agile businesses require a continuous delivery model with critical ops and security feedback loops built in. Join industry experts as they explore how companies are embracing DevOps and Agile to deliver more value, faster, from mobile to mainframe.

  1. Data security best practices for a hostile world

How confident are you that your organization is compliant, or that its data is as secure as possible? Overconfidence can be a killer, with many enterprise’s being compromised through lax data compliance procedures or simple employee error.

This can be avoided, however. Our panel of experts will discuss new approaches to mainframe security management, including mitigating the risk of data exposure, reducing the effort involved with regulatory compliance, maintaining a unified approach to overall enterprise security, and improving results associated with audits.

  1. Cover that skills gap

Does your organization face an IT skills shortage?  You’re not alone.  In a recent CompTia IT Workforce Survey, more than half of businesses reported concern about the quality and quantity of IT talent available for hire.

In the analytics sessions, our experts will share their experiences, lessons learned and best practices on how you can leverage IT operational analytics to optimize your mainframe and close that skills gap.

  1. One word — virtual

Worried about taking time out of the office? We know that time is precious when ensuring the smooth-running of an enterprise. Thankfully, you can attend this summit without ever leaving your seat. No travel, no expenses, no having to justify cost to your boss or to take time away from your family. Just click, register, and attend.  It’s that easy.
