Turbo-Charge Your Applications from z/OS to Edge to Multi-Cloud with In-Memory Computing


December 2, 2020 @ 2:00pm PST / 5:00pm EST / 10:00pm GMT
60 minutes

Mainframe computers are used at many companies today, but the need for more cost-effectiveness is forcing changes. A popular strategy, mainframe optimization, enables lower mainframe costs due to the reduction in unnecessary MIPS. At the same time, it adds powerful new architectures related to cloud, microservices, and data streaming.

An integration with IBM and Hazelcast can provide a seamless fast data and compute plane that runs anywhere from z/OS, to edge, to multi-cloud, accelerating your applications. With microservices, serverless, and cloud-native applications, you can seamlessly interact with your core business systems running on z/OS. And you retain the same always-on zero downtime service levels you have come to expect from the Z Platform.

In this webinar, we will discuss new capabilities for your mainframe-centric environment, and also show a demonstration running across z/OS, and OpenShift in IBM Cloud.

Can’t attend the live times? You should still register! We’ll be sending out the recording after the webinar to all registrants.
