Building a z/OSMF Workflow-Driven Install


The presenter will discuss how Phoenix Software International developed a z/OSMF Workflow-Driven product install from an existing installation manual. The presenter will describe PSI's installation philosophy and future objectives for z/OSMF-based installs, the actual mechanics (scripts, etc) used to convert the manual into a workflow, hints and tips for others interested in doing something similar, and -- given decent WiFi -- possibly even live demonstrations of the conversion scripts and z/OSMF workflow results.
