IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe - January/February 2014 - 8

IBM PERSPECTIVE
Mainframe Innovation Continues
eing an IBM executive, you learn quickly that you are not the position; you are
simply the steward of that position. I have been fortunate to serve as VP and
Business Line Executive (BLE) for IBM System z* for more than three years. In
November I was named the new VP, Storage Systems Development. I'm excited about
the new opportunity and look forward to continuing to help clients solve business
problems aided by IBM technologies. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to
serve the System z community. I am pleased to announce that Mike Desens, who has a
long history with System z, has accepted the position as System z VP and BLE.

capabilities (including simplified management
of virtualized Linux* on System z). In November,
IBM announced the zEnterprise System broke the
100,000 transactions per second (TPS) mark by
reaching 117,292 TPS on a single IMS* 13 Fast
Path environment. These innovations and
achievements showcase the System z team's
commitment to delivering continued innovation
and groundbreaking technologies.

IBM System z in 2014 and Beyond
In 2014, we join thousands of clients, business
partners, ISVs and IBMers to commemorate the
golden anniversary of System z. Leading up to the
official anniversary on April 7, we will
reflect on the ways the mainframe
has been at the forefront of
enabling huge discoveries
and driving major industry
transformations throughout the
world. Think of what we know
as the modern banking and
financial industries.
Think about how
the mainframe has
transformed the
transportation
industry and
powered the
airline and railway
reservation
systems. Think
about the
mainframe every
time you use your

credit card. The mainframe
has enabled some of the most
pervasive technologies-many
of which have become staple
instruments in our daily life.
And it won't stop. Look for
us to be talking about what
clients are doing that is new and
innovative with System z today,
and what IBM, our clients and
partners are doing to train and
develop the next generation of
System z professionals.
IBM is committed to ongoing
innovation and reinvention
for the mainframe-delivering
on the promise of our past
and driving new innovations
that will propel you and your
organization into the future.
The System z platform is in good
hands. Together, General Manager Pat Toole, Desens, the
IBMers led by them, our
clients and partners will
continue the tradition
of excellence.

This year marks the 50th
anniversary of the IBM mainframe.
This key moment in history is the
result of the efforts of thousands of
dedicated IBMers working closely
with our clients and partners over
five decades to drive continued
innovations for zEnterprise*
clients worldwide. And, as you
have seen from the amount of
capability delivered in 2013, we
are continuing to innovate and
plan to do so well into the future.
In 2013, we worked tirelessly to
architect, design, and deliver many
System z enhancements, including
the launch of a new business
class system-the IBM zEnterprise
BC12 (zBC12) midrange server.
This new system is a screamer,
running at 4.2 GHz and offering up
to 62 percent more total capacity
compared to its predecessor, the
z114. Additional innovations
include: high-end system
enhancements, new operating
system releases for z/OS* and
z/VM*, new software capabilities,
three new industry solutions and
technologies supporting cloud,
analytics, mobile, and security.
On Aug. 30, 2013, IBM
completed the acquisition of
Israel-based CSL International,
which expands System z cloud
