Mainframes have increased in importance, but if companies are to maintain a functioning and innovative operation, educating and training IT personnel on the mainframe is essential. That’s why CA Technologies, in partnership with SHARE, is pleased to sponsor the Mainframe Academy Scholarship Program.
The Sunday before SHARE Atlanta offers intensive academies for veteran and neophyte mainframes. Whether you need to hone your debugging skills, brush up on your CICS TS Architecture knowledge or get a better understanding of the mainframe, SHARE has an educational offering to match your need.
Ivan Gelb, a self-titled CICS mercenary, is a staunch believer in this Customer Information Control System. While many misconceptions exist about it — no, it's not too old to be relevant, and yes, it is price competitive — Gelb is here to debunk those myths.
Part of the SHARE CICS Project since 1987, Glenn Schneck has gotten up close and personal with this technology. And he has a message for everyone who thinks CICS is a thing of the past: CICS is really "the next big thing, and it's already here."
One of the most hotly anticipated events at this summer’s SHARE in Atlanta is CICS Immersion, a full-day session on the ins and outs of CICS TS Architecture, with a focus on internals, debugging and some of the common problems that CICS system programmers have to face on a day-to-day basis.
