IBM Z Champion.
ISM: How did you hear about the
mainframe specifically, and what
inspired you to go into a career
working on IBM Z?

TK: While everyone, including
myself, has heard of mainframes, I
didn't really know what one was and
what they did until my second week
at IBM when they told me I would be
working on mainframes. I learned

like Phil, who help co-create solutions with the IBM team. I went
from planning to work at IBM for
two or three years to falling in love
with these cool pieces of hardware
that run the world's economy. Now,
I'm working on planning my entire
career path at IBM.

to learn programming in COBOL
and then later Assembler in order to

the application and system sides,
but the mainframe has really been a
never-ending avenue of opportunity
for me. Beginning in 1989, I had to
learn to support 3890 check sorters,
IBM 3780 protocol and spent my
days and nights with manuals in my

a hobby, but an adventure.
ISM: Phil, as an IBM Z Champion,
you're very involved in the mainframe community. Can you tell us
about the virtual lunch-and-learns
you hold at Black Knight?
PA: Because I'm not getting any
younger, I want to make sure that I
leave something behind for those
just starting out. Also, because
many of our employees are siloed,
they don't get to see what other people do to support the business, and
they may not realize that although
they are content in their current
role, they might prefer another role.
I created a monthly mainframe
overview that lasts about 90 minutes, where anyone who wants to
listen can come and learn about
the different technologies we in
mainframe support. We talk about
the history of the mainframe, Black
Knight's technology investment,
