Accelerate your skills on IBM Z

Share this post:

The pace of technology change feels like it is accelerating because it is! At the same time, IT is firmly at the center of all business decisions driving value for the business and its customers. Keeping IT aligned with the needs of the business and the other organizations within that business, while technology options evolve more rapidly is a huge challenge.

Maintaining and acquiring new tech skills is crucial for protecting the business you serve in a world where technology is at top speed. With the role of the IBM Z platform at the heart of global enterprises, there’s a growing need for new professionals with mainframe skills. To help meet this demand, the z/OS for Rookies learning track is available at our next TechU event October 8-12 in Hollywood, FL.

This full track of sessions helps your newer team members to get started and go deep on IBM Z with hands-on training delivered by IBM Technical Training Instructors. But that’s not all. We are partnering with Interskill to offer 53 e-learning courses handselected for IBM Z newbies. The Interskill online courses are available at no additional charge to attendees of the Rookies track from the time you register for TechU to three months after the event. Find out more about this track and register today!

There is also plenty of content for your more experienced IBM Z techies. From updates on the capabilities of z14, to the deep dive into WLM, to the effects of capping on your MSUs, you’ll find topics which will help you get more out of your IBM Z system. In addition to the formal training that takes place at TechU, you’ll have the opportunity to network with your peers and with IBM and IBM Business Partner experts. What better way to grow your skills than a week of comprehensive tech training led by the A-team of the IBM Systems community? I hope to see you there. Register for the Hollywood TechU today.
