Classroom education is important for learning new technologies, but when it comes to learning a complex field like mainframe, there’s no replacement for the value of on-the-job training. With its Mainframer in Training (MIT) program, U.K.-based service provider RSM Partners aims to add structure to
Many computer science students haven’t heard much about the mainframe, and they certainly haven’t had a chance to work with the platform. That’s a big problem for an industry facing a skills gap, as a generation of mainframers begin to retire.
During SHARE Academic, a program for students interest
SHARE St. Louis, held this year from August 12-17, will feature over 500 technical education sessions on some of the hottest topics in the industry, and offer plenty of networking opportunities. Between learning and networking, however, we hope you take some time to enjoy our host city. We’ve asked
While we cannot control the future, we can do our best to shape it. I’d like to think that is one reason we gather for events like SHARE St. Louis. We leave knowing more than we did before and return to our organizations, ideally making improvements and moving our industry forward as a whole.
Emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) are rapidly developing and evolving—as is what we can do with those technologies.
According to Jeff Bisti, Cognitive AI Architect at IBM, the mainframe is on the periphery of being able to partici
