Tom Rosamilia, Senior Vice President, IBM Systems, IBM Corporation
Monday, August 10   

As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of SHARE, we find ourselves in the midst of unprecedented change. There is a digital transformation happening across companies, industries and entire societies and it is changing how we act, interact and transact. The digitization of practically everything, the pervasiveness of mobility, and the Internet of Things are raising the stakes for how organizations engage their customers and differentiate in the marketplace. Driving leadership in this new world now and in the future requires systems that are designed to enable digital business and position IT at the very center of business value creation.  Rosamilia will discuss how IBM systems are future-made and uniquely positioned to help businesses maximize the opportunities presented in the digital era.

Monday LVM and MVS Program Opening Talk

MVS Program Opening Presenter: Chris O'MalleyThe Apathy Virus
Chris O'Malley, CEO, Compuware
Monday, August 10

Most people believe the mainframe is immune from viruses. But an extremely dangerous virus seriously threatens both the mainframe and the organizations that depend on it.

That virus is apathy. Apathy settles for “good enough” instead of striving for excellence and innovation. Apathy fails to fully and aggressively leverage the mainframe’s incredible wealth of code and data.

In his talk, Compuware CEO Chris O’Malley and a panel of colleagues will discuss:

  • The mainframe's role in the new world of "composable apps"
  • Why the generational shift in IT is both a crisis and an opportunity
  • How to be lean and agile enough to satisfy relentlessly escalating customer demands

Panelists include:

  • Joe Vogel, Director of Application Development and Support, Black Knight Financial Services
  • Jason Bloomberg, Industry Analyst, Intellyx
  • Connor Bratten, Developer, Compuware
  • Keith Sisson, Director of Technical Services, Compuware
