"SUSE Linux Enterprise Server has been available for 17 years. IBM's mainframes have been around for over 50 years. Join us for this session to discover why both offer an innovative platform for today’s IT needs and how you can take the first steps to explore them further. We will match terminology with current technical terms and help you become more familiar with something that might seem strange at a first glance.
You’ll get market insight from the two leaders in this vital market segment and learn the answers to important questions such as “What are the challenges of today and tomorrow?” Who are the customers successfully leveraging the z System?” and “What are the benefits of Linux?”
After this session, you will be able to better communicate with people with mainframe backgrounds and have a better idea of how to install Linux in a mainframe environment.
Join us to get first-hand, entertaining insights into the world of mainframes and Linux on System z. And find out about your options to try, learn, and continue to educate yourself about this world. Your next employer might value these additional skills! We will close the session with a technology outlook for the future."
