The latest generation of the IBM mainframe is critical for any IT infrastructure that must be efficient, secure, adaptive, and integrated. The IBM Redbooks team has brought together expertise from around the world to help you explore and realize the potential of the IBM z13. Here are 5 things to know about how IBM Redbooks can guide you through the opportunities this new technology can bring to your business:
1. Learn, adopt, deploy
Whether you need to understand which z13 products and solutions will meet your needs, get information to help you decide what to invest in, or get support implementing, we have the right Redbooks resource for you. We’ve organized the Redbooks resources for z13 into the categories of “Learn”, “Adopt”, and “Deploy” to help you find exactly what you need, when you need it. Plus, if you want more information, you have the option to provide your contact details or chat live with IBM.
2. Redbooks for z13—more than books
Redbooks have been your go-to resources for years. But did you know that Redbooks are so much more than books? New videos, blog posts, and short publications such as Point-of-Views give you brief and pointed information on z13, while our classic Redbooks publications provide the depth of information you've always relied on. You can get all the latest Redbooks resources for z13 here as well as via our Redbooks mobile app for iOS and Android, which has a dedicated bookshelf for z13.
As you peruse the Redbooks resources for z13, you’ll notice that we have a new look and feel. We’ve redesigned our covers to make it as easy as possible for you to identify the right resources for your needs. We maximized the size of the titles on our publications for optimal viewing on the web and via app; we added bold new artwork to help you distinguish one publication from another; we clearly identified each publication by its type (Redpaper, Point-of-View, Solution Guide, etc.); and we added labels to help you understand which brand or solution area – such as z Systems, Cloud, Mobile, Social, and so on -- the publication covers.
