As the mainframe platform evolves with new capabilities — and even as it moves to the hybrid cloud environment — enterprises will need all the skilled workers they can find. Part of that pipeline-building process is ensuring that the next generation of workers are engaged in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).

Think About It

Data governance used to be relatively simple to define; it originally required handling data quality, metadata management, discovery, and classification. But traditional data governance has its limits—it doesn't take security into account and often leaves companies, customers and data at risk. Companies struggle to protect access to sensitive data—in fact, this is the leading cause of cyberattacks almost every year.
