Tailored Fit Pricing: How to Manage Workload in a World Without Capping
2020.09.09 tailored fit pricing.mp4

Speakers: Andrew Mead, Senior Offering Manager & Business Unit Executive for Tailored Fit Pricing, IBM; Roger Rogers, Executive IT Economics Consultant, IBM; Rebecca Levesque, CEO & President, 21st Century Software

Tailored Fit Pricing is a new pricing model that eliminates the need for capping workloads and provides a complete alternative to the R4HA. For clients adopting this new model, there may be questions on how you manage your workloads both from a technical and business perspective: How am I tracking against my annual baseline? What is the change in MSU consumption month-to-month? Who are my major consumers of resources? Can I quantify the benefit of investing in new z15 hardware?

In this webinar, the speakers discuss these questions and demonstrate how to model these scenarios using IBM Z Performance and Capacity Analytics. Using predefined reports, IT operations and management can easily manage performance consumption, link this back to business operations, and provide the basis for planning workload optimization and future capacity needs.

The Impact of Coronavirus: How Businesses can Stay Secure, Mitigate Risk & Prevent Security Breaches
rocket software 6.11.2020.mp4

Speaker: Julie Bergh, WW Lead Security Advisor, Rocket Software

Authentication is the beating heart of security. The most fundamental action in all of IT is to identify “who you are,” and authentication is the building block that answers that question. This is becoming even more critical given the recent coronavirus outbreak now that a large population of employees are forced to remotely access mission-critical applications.

Now more than ever, businesses and governments across industries—and particularly those in highly regulated spaces—must do everything they can to detect threats to their mission-critical corporate information and applications.

In this webcast, Rocket will discuss how leading businesses are:

  • Deploying multi-factor authentication to stop hackers and protect their assets
  • Using security analytics and cognitive computing to detect vulnerabilities and remediate exposures
  • Supporting cloud and big data applications by extending their mainframe investments while complying with industry regulations and keeping costs down

Detecting threats can be complex, and failure to protect can result in vulnerabilities, audit failures, loss of reputation, security breaches and even total system shutdowns.

User Presentation: z/OS CPU Measurements Demystified
zos cpu measurements demystified.mp4

Speaker: Scott Chapman, CIO, Director of Software Design and Development, Enterprise Performance Strategies Inc.

Measuring CPU consumption is a critical piece of both performance analysis and capacity planning. There are lots of different ways that CPU consumption can be expressed, such as CPU Seconds, MIPS, MSUs, Service Units and more. If you are confused as to what these terms mean and how they relate to each other then this session is for you. Join Scott Chapman for a walk through the possible CPU measurements, conversion between those measurements, and when you might use each.
