Open Innovation and Attracting the Next Generation of Developers and Architects to the Mainframe


Keynote

Mainframes power major sectors of the global economy and are at the heart of a vibrant ecosystem of developers, architects, system integrators and end users. Organizations can get even more benefit and competitive advantage as the mainframe adapts to the next generation of software platforms, technologies, and engineers. Attend this keynote to hear from executives and developers from IBM, CA Technologies and Rocket Software as they discuss and demonstrate the latest open innovations for IBM Z and the z/OS environment. And then listen to the  panel of new tenure mainframers to hear what attracts them to the platform and provide insight into the next generation developers and architects. Learn how open source tools and frameworks can help accelerate software development, meet growing digital business demands, lower the barrier to entry for the next generation, and how you can be a part of this innovative community that will shape the future of mainframes.
