Help!! My Manager Said We're Moving Off The Mainframe!
Thursday, November 17, 2017, 11:00am – 12:00pm EST
Speakers: Frank Fillmore & Kim May, The Fillmore Group, Inc.

Technology is all about innovation and everyone knows the mainframe is as old as dirt. Therefore, according to many CIO's, now's the time to move to something new, like maybe open source, in the cloud with some of those cute animals. How can loyal IBM z Systems users respond to this short-sighted "management by airline magazine" approach? Join this webcast to learn tactics to win the battle of the best platform to trust with your organization’s critical data and applications. We will prepare you to respond to the “modernization” message with a clear and logical action plan that promotes organizational efficiency, cost savings - and sanity (the mainframe!!). This webcast will discuss:

1. How to locate, gather and excite your IBM z team.
2. Be smart, be bold. Understand the enemy - where management teams are hearing the mainframe is obsolete message and the specific issues to address.
3. Gather collateral to *wow* your colleagues. Learn where to get industry white papers, how to complete a z Systems cost analysis and schedule activities to address management’s concerns.
