Security & Compliance Software Can Attract NextGen Mainframe Pros
By George Lang, Chairman/CTO, Direct Computer Resources, Inc.
A recent TV ad campaign features
an enthusiastic new college graduate
explaining to a group of friends that
his exciting first IT job will literally drive
the nation's transportation system.
Meanwhile, his buddy's fun new gig
renders comical cartoon helmets
into cat videos, resulting in laughter
(and interest). So, how do we attract
the next generation of mainframe
developers when enterprise
computing skills aren't top of mind
for millennials? Through security and
compliance products and services.
Dedicated professionals know the
mainframe is here to stay - IBM
innovations have made the mainframe
more efficient and cost-effective, and
today's developers understand its
inherent, built-in longevity. So, first we
must show future pros how even the
coolest tech like mobile peer-to-peer
payments and e-commerce platforms
rely on z Systems*.
But we can also promote enterprise
security tools and systems as an
industry driver, even as competition
for these skilled workers increases.
U.S. News & World Report notes that
IT security jobs rank eighth of the 100
best jobs through 2022 with a growth
rate of 36.5 percent.
By first choosing easy-to-deploy
and quick-to-master enterprise data
protection and compliance tools
that are automated, repeatable and
affordable, data security and protection
can serve as a natural entry-point into a
still-robust computing environment.
