Revisiting WLM Options for the Modern Mainframe

Date and Time: Thursday, December 10, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. CDT 
Speaker: Scott Chapman, CIO and Director of Software Design and Development, Enterprise Performance Strategies

WLM was introduced in the early 1990s and most sites most sites implemented goal mode in the late 90s or early 2000s. A lot has changed since then. New WLM features have been introduced. Options and features are enabled (or not) either when defining a new policy or when a new feature becomes available but then never reviewed for applicability in the face of significant changes in the hardware and software environment.

Just like regularly reviewing your goals, revisiting your WLM options periodically is a good thing as well. Join Scott Chapman in this session as he reviews the WLM options and shows how one long-standing recommendation is now perhaps skewing results in a counter-productive fashion.

User series: ISPF is Dead! Long Live ISPF!

Date and Time: Tuesday, January 12, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT 
Speaker: Thomas Conley, President & CEO, Pinnacle Consulting Group

Have you heard that ISPF is dead? Do you still rely on ISPF to do your job? Do you want to continue to see enhancements to ISPF so it remains relevant to the work you do? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then this webcast is for you! To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of ISPF's death were an exaggeration. A dedicated core of longtime ISPF users and developers are working to enhance ISPF wherever possible, to ensure that ISPF remains viable well into the future. Two significant works from this group are PDSEGEN and the CBT Usermod Collection for ISPF (CUCI).

Attend this webcast to learn about:

  • Exploiting PDSE Member Generations
  • EDIT highlighting for unsupported languages such as Java, SQL, shell script (and many more!)
  • Block deletes in 3.4 that don't stop for VSAM
  • Setting defaults that ISPCCONF doesn't
  • And many more!
