CHAMPIONS SHOWCASE
SPONSORED ADVERTISING CONTENT

"We're also using an API-centric
design that manages the entire
API lifecycle for all distributed and
IBM Z consumers."
A member of the IBM Design
Council and CICS* Design Partner
program, he focuses on DevOps
with the goal of eliminating differences between platforms from
a developer's perspective and to
have an always-on environment.
Dusty Rivers
Director, Z Systems, IMS and
CICS, GT Software
Dusty Rivers may be the Z Champion with the most Z experience.
He started with the MVS platform
in 1977, first as a programmer,
then a database administrator,
then a systems programmer for
IMS* and Db2*. Ultimately, he
worked on integrating distributed
systems with the mainframe.
Rivers speaks at SHARE conferences, the Virtual IBM user group
and other conferences around
the globe about mainframe in an
API world. "I work with major
global companies to bring their
mainframe systems, IMS and
CICS, into the new API economy,"
he says, noting that his company
provides software for Z mainframe applications.
Phil Grabowski
IT network and security
forensic instructor, Pittsburgh
Technical College
Having worked with mainframe
technology his entire career, Phil
Grabowski now teaches it. He
uses the Master the Mainframe
contest as extra credit for students
and provides them with a chartered Mainframe Club. In 2015,
Grabowski was a Destination z

scholarship winner.
"To be honest, everyone has
been working on the Z platform
and doesn't realize it because
mainframes run western civilizations' economies."
Thirty-one of his students attended SHARE in
Providence, Rhode Island, in
2017 and competed in the Master
the Mainframe hackathon. This
June, he's taking a group to the
Enterprise Computing Community Conference where he and
a colleague are presenting their
paper, "The Gamification of IBM
Enterprise Z in Higher Education
Enhancing Self-Efficacy of Students." In August, he's also taking
students to SHARE in St. Louis.
 
Cameron W. Seay  
Assistant professor, College of
Science and Technology, North
Carolina A&T State University
Cameron W. Seay has been teaching Z platform-related classes
for nine years. The university
offers four mainframe courses
for undergraduate and graduate
levels, with up to 100 students
enrolling each year.
He's also generating interest
among students before they get
to college. "We're exposing high
schoolers and middle schoolers
to mainframe technology," he
says. "For the past 10 years, we
have hosted 'Extreme Day,' which
began with a mainframe focus but
expanded to include cloud computing and cybersecurity."  
Seay helps high school technology teachers encourage students to
participate in the Master the Mainframe competition, with one high
schooler completing Part 3, which
less than 1 percent of participants
achieve. Seay and his colleagues

Building a Legacy
of Resiliency on Z
With Automation
Through Analytics
Companies
are struggling
with the reality
of responding
to the quickly
changing business
environment of
digital, analytics,
Internet of Things, etc. which, by itself,
is challenging, while at the same
time facing new regulations, (GDPR
anyone?), malware threats and
restricted budgets and resources.
The mainframe environment is no
different, except it isn't sexy. The data
that resides on it is the foundation of
much of the digital transformation
data. It requires more protection
than ever before to ensure always-on
access, but it isn't always considered
at risk or in need of attention. Your
business and customers demand
tighter SLAs and the Batch Risk is
due to manual processes in an
automated world. It's understood
that replication alone for operational
resiliency isn't enough. Having
useable point-in-time backups are
DÃQHFHVVLW\ÃWRÃÀJKWÃWRGD\·VÃWKUHDWVÃ
but "useable" implies automated
intelligence is being applied to those
copies. With that, now you are truly
resilient.
21st Century Software applies
that intelligence with VFI. Analytics
with automation is key to improving
any process but especially the very
manually driven batch process.

Rebecca Levesque
CEO, 21st Century Software

Rebecca has 20-plus years of
experience working with clients
on storage management, migration
and resiliency strategies.
