Yes, "upgrade" is the new name for these traditional "migration" sessions! This is part one of a two-part session that will be of interest to System Programmers and their managers who are upgrading to z/OS 2.4 from either z/OS 2.2 or 2.3. It is strongly recommended that you attend both sessions for a complete upgrade picture.
In part one, the speaker will focus on preparing for your z/OS 2.4 upgrade. She will overview the changed content of z/OS 2.4. She will cover ordering and delivery options, and will explain the coexistence, upgrade, fall back, and service policies. Driving and target system requirements for both software and hardware will be highlighted along with some upgrade actions you can perform now on your current z/OS release.
