IBM's zPDT: Beyond the Basics
Project and Program: SHARE-wide Events
, SHARE in Atlanta 2012
IBM®’s zPDT™ provides the foundation of a software based System z® environment targeted for users of IBM’s Rational® development suite (RDz-UT) and for ISVs developing software for the commercial System z market.
Information Technology Company (ITC) packages zPDT into a complete and ready to use solution for both sets of users: Ultimate Personal Development Tool (System uPDT™) for ISV developers and Rational Enhanced Development Device (System ReDD™) for RDz-UT users.
You have probably heard about zPDT from IBM, now come listen to the people with the most zPDT experience outside of IBM to get more “real life” information.
Stan and Mike will provide a brief general and technical background and then focus on some practical and financial aspects of utilizing zPDT technology in both the Rational RDz-UT and IBM PartnerWorld® ISV environments. They will provide some technical considerations, horror stories from field experiences, and real-world relative pricing and ROI analysis for the two types of target users.
The session will conclude with a live demo of a fully integrated uPDT system running the RDz-UT system and demonstrating the enhancements provided in the uPDT and ReDD packages.
