Have you been wondering what the IBM z13 can do for your digital business? We invited Jeff Frey, IBM Fellow and z Systems CTO, to share his insights on the new IBM mainframe and explain how it can enhance your business. The result is five short videos for you to watch with an IBM Redbooks publication for each to supplement Jeff’s thoughts. Click the book image after you watch the videos to find out more.
2. “Different workloads have different characteristics”: Whether your applications are stateless, compute intensive, or I/O intensive, your architecture must be compatible and able to embrace the new technologies while protecting the investments you have made in your existing systems. The z13 has introduced new capabilities aimed at allowing businesses to add Systems of Engagement to their existing Systems of Record. Discover how by watching: http
3. “You know one of the best secrets of the z System is…”: Systems achieve the levels of efficiency demanded by modern businesses through an overall balanced design. Processors, memory, I/O, and network communications must complement each other to achieve the required levels of performance. You can have the fastest processors in the world, but if you can’t feed them, your workloads will suffer. Find out more by watching this video: http
4. "All of the data, always online, all of the time": IBM mainframes are often the principal source of operational and transactional data within larger commercial enterprises. Obtaining real-time insight from this data provides a competitive advantage. The ability to turn data into accurate and timely insight is determined by the efficiency of your business analytics execution and the relative proximity of the data to be analyzed.

5. “Standardization is the key to virtualization”: Modern workloads are widening the diversification of customer expectations, and so you might expect to see a corresponding fragmentation in available solutions. The answer lies in systems being able to scale up and scale out, not just in terms of performance and size, but also in functionality. Virtualization is the core enablement of systems capability, but standardization is key to making virtualization effective. Watch Jeff’s last video in this series at: http
