The latest emerging technologies: what mainframers need to know


Presentation

One of the joys of working in IT is that the technology landscape is forever changing, with new technologies bringing fresh opportunities. This session will examine the most significant emerging technologies (Blockchain, Apache Hyperledger, Apache Spark, IBM Watson, IBM Analytics, and others) and how they can be used to create new business applications. Gone are the days when z/OS was a closed environment and external technologies could be ignored. Today all environments are connected and whether these new technologies run on z/OS or distributed systems, are proprietary  or Open Source, they all need careful consideration.
