At the SHARE New Orleans session “Surviving and Thriving in the New Century Mainframe Landscape,” join a cadre of industry voices to discuss the enduring power of the mainframe. With the recent rise and evolution of cloud and AI, the mainframe is still as relevant as ever for many enterprises around the world. Far from an obsolete legacy, the mainframe is constantly evolving to meet modern needs, writes Stephanie Simone, Database Trends & Applications. At SHARE New Orleans, Janet Sun, senior consultant; Frank DeGilio, distinguished engineer at IBM; and Steven Perva, senior mainframe innovation engineer at Ensono will host a unique “UNSESSION” focusing on engaging the audience for a conversation about the new-century mainframe landscape. According to DeGilio and Perva, the intention is to solicit a free-flowing dialogue discussing the “issues and inhibitors impacting the mainframe industry,” while attempting to use the UNCONFERENCE model for this UNSESSION.
