Teaching Mainframe Skills to Your Incoming Gen Workforce


Presentation

Generation Z is knocking on the door to full-time employment, and they’ll make up 24 percent of the global workforce by 2020. But are enterprise IT professionals prepared to teach a new group of workers, unaccustomed to the mainframe, the skills to manage today’s most critical IT environments for the largest organisations in the country?

There’s a skills gap facing mainframe operations, and for organisations to effectively maintain these environments, they need to succession plan. But once you’ve added these employees, of which basically none have prior mainframe experience, how do you first train them, and from there, retain them?
