Upcoming Webcasts


Building Mainframe Data Pipelines to Feed Enterprise-wide Applications

Date and Time: Thursday, December 5, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. CT
Speakers: Art Tolsma, CEO, Luminex; Jeff Bean, Partner Solutions Architect, Confluent; Derek Wilson, Digital Solutions Engineer, Hitachi Vantara

Data-driven organizations need low-friction, highly available and fast access to mainframe data as input for distributed applications, microservices and other business processes. Yet, access to this data has historically meant overcoming multiple obstacles, leading to project delays, cost overruns and compromises in speed, security and flexibility.

Confluent and Luminex will discuss how to use Apache Kafka and Mainframe Data Integration (MDI) to build efficient, highly available and agile mainframe data pipelines with an event streaming platform that can be made available to unlimited applications - without the struggles or compromises of the past. Hitachi Vantara will demonstrate how Pentaho enables enterprises to leverage these secure, high-speed event streams for better operational insights and business operations.


Data Analysts, Enterprise Architects, Application Developers and anyone else who provides or relies on access to mainframe data can benefit from this modern approach to mainframe data integration.

Measuring z/OS Performance for Mainframe Rookies

Date and Time: Thursday, December 12, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. CT
Speakers: Scott Chapman, Director of Software Design and Development, EPS

Are you new to the mainframe and need to understand the performance of your z/OS systems? Have you seen some basic z/OS performance measurements but don’t understand the source of those measurements? Or maybe you’ve seen some measurements that don’t sound like measurements that you’re familiar with on other platforms?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of those questions, come to this session wherein Scott Chapman will lead you through some of the more important z/OS performance metrics and explain where they come from and why they’re important.
