What to expect?

According to the spirit of GSE this conference deals with much more than the specs of z14, the newest mainframe of IBM. Several topics will come along: from new items in application development, over data analytics and IT infrastructure to IT security.

The day starts with a general session to all. Afterwards business managers, architects and IT-managers follow their specific own track:

  • Technicals can learn about new methods for application development to be handled by z14, as well as machine learning, blockchain, analytics and the API-economy. IT security is also a main topic with the new capability of z14 to encrypt everything, called: pervasive encryption. This has major advantages in the world of blockchain and GDPR. At the level of infrastructure there is a session about OpenStack and Linux on z14 and about hybrid cloud environments.
  • The Management track of the conference hosts non-technical sessions about blockchain, hybrid cloud and DevOps, specially tailored to their needs.
  • Architects can learn how z14 can bring value to the company compared to a distributed architecture.
