Mainframe Technology Workshop 2019

November 12 | Ludwigsburg

Mainframe is part of the cloud strategy

Trend topics in the mainframe area are always part of a modern cloud strategy. CIOs and IT managers have to get to grips with trend topics. Today, anyone who wants to be innovative is looking for a way into the cloud. When doing so, the mainframe should not be neglected under any circumstances. It is an important component of a modern, holistic cloud strategy.

16th meeting of our mainframe community

On November 12, our community will meet for a lively exchange between experts, customers, and interesting guests. Take part and experience our mainframe community on an exciting workshop day. Discuss real use cases with specialists and customers, and discuss important milestones or possible pitfalls on the way to a modern mainframe approach. Benefit from exchange, technical understanding, real customer situations, and the community's many years of experience.

In keynotes, breakout sessions, and discussion rounds, experts will show and explain how the mainframe can be ideally used for future topics such as the use of open source software and many practical examples. In experience workshops, we will inform you about solutions and current topics together with our partners, such as modernizing applications, reducing complexity, or safeguarding skills for classic and modern mainframe technologies.
