Z/OS for Fast Start - We built it for you!

Organizations that depend on mainframes are experiencing a mainframe skills gap due to retiring baby-boomers. In parallel, the scale, complexity, and change in the mainframe environment continue to accelerate. Performance and capacity teams are a mission-critical function, and this performance skills gap represents a great risk to ongoing operations.

Take action today to bridge your skills gap. Send your early career IBM Z programmers and engineers to the z/OS for Rookies track. This full week of sessions will enable 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.

IBM is partnering with Interskill to offer their Z mainframe e-learning courses at no cost to attendees of the z/OS for Rookies track. The Interskill courses will be offered prior to the event, on registration, and will be available for three months after the event.
