IBM Systems magazine, Mainframe - January/February 2019 - RZ1

WELCOME
Z Is More Relevant Than Ever

F

or 35 years, my father-in-law Erwin
installed and serviced IBM mainframes. His job was my first introduction into the existence of
the platform. I remember him
talking about how the airline
reservation system was all run
on mainframe and how the machine behind ATM transactions
was a mainframe.
He retired from IBM about the
same time I started on the IBM
magazines. Erwin would frequently ask
me questions about how the mainframe
was keeping up with modern computing.
I assured him it was and gave him examples of how businesses were using the
platform to remain competitive.
Fast forward to 2018 and the IBM Z*
mainframe is more relevant than ever.
It's a multiplatform, multicloud world
and the platform is the cornerstone
enterprises need to compete. Read more
about it in "IBM Z's Role in the 'Multi'
World" on page 2.
One of the ways the mainframe remains so vital is by employing modern

development practices. If you've ever
heard Rosalind Radcliffe, IBM Distinguished Engineer, evangelize DevOps,
you know what I'm talking
about. To hear more from
her on this topic, check out
"DevOps Drives Innovation and
Modernization on Z" on page 6.
To help educate the masses
on the relevance of IBM Z,
IBM Systems Media has
put together a microsite,
aptly named "Relevant Z" (RelevantZ.
ibmsystemsmag.com) with information
on how the Open Mainframe Project is
raising awareness of Z, how creative approaches build skills development and
promote career opportunities for new
mainframe professionals, and more.
We also feature e-books from Micro
Focus, Terma Software and 21st
Century Software.
If Erwin were still alive, I know he'd
read this supplement with great interest
and consume all of the content on the
microsite. He'd be proud of how relevant
his favorite platform remains.
