Moving mainframe data is expensive, time consuming and data limiting. You may have too much data and not enough time to move all the needed data for data lakes and data warehouses. But business analysts and data scientists need more information for data-hungry applications, causing ETL costs to spiral up. We have a better solution. Join us in this webcast where Gregg Willhoit and Steve Mink will discuss the benefits that Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS (DVM) brings to ETL infrastructures. They will discuss the performance benefits and cost savings delivered by DVM when it is used as a data utility layer to quality and data integration solutions. With DVM, customers can speed up ETL by orders of magnitude and save mainframe costs since DVM mainly executes on zIIP engines.

GDPR compliance (General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union) went into effect on May 25th of this year. GDPR has many facets and affects many things from how you manage your customer data to providing backup and recovery services. This webcast looks at GDPR and other topics that provide more data security and protection, such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Transparent Data Encryption (TDE), and auditing support for your Db2 data. What do you need to do to make sure your data processes are secure? The answer is attend this live webcast where you can also provide your input and feedback. We will simplify the new security concepts and help you navigate the sea of regulations.
Topics include:

  • GDPR and effect on Db2 data during any type of recovery process
  • Encryption of Db2 data and best practices
  • How to deal with long passwords in Db2
  • Different auditing methods and how they can help satisfy your requirements

IBM Data Virtualization Manager (IBM DVM) unlocks the full potential of data on IBM Z to provide universal access to any application regardless of location or format required.  In the past, previous data architectures struggled with real-time requirements, which are increasingly driven by today's 24/7 mobile world.   No matter how fast data is collected and moved, it will never be as fast as real-time, in-place access.   IBM DVM is the solution that provides fast, real-time, in-place federated acess to both your enterprise mainframe and non-mainframe data.   

This webcast will show you how data virtualisation's synergy with today's API economy can evolve the informaton architecture on IBM Z by modernising, accelerating and simplifying all enteprise applications that need mainframe data without actually moving the data.  You will see how data from IMS, VSAM and Db2 can be federated using virtual tables and views and how REST APIs can be easily created to return the data in JSON format.

Let’s be honest.  Thinking about how you recover your Db2 data and/or objects is not something that’s on the top of your to-do list in a busy day.   That’s where a solution like IBM’s Db2 Recovery Expert for z/OS comes in.  It takes the planning and worry away from potential recovery situations, so you can focus on other tasks.

If you are an existing QMF for TSO user, this webcast is for you!

QMF gurus Robin Zalud and Shawn Sullivan will discuss the performance benefits of QMF12's TSO client, its productivity enhancements,  API additions, and new functionality available through continuous delivery updates.  
QMF for TSO customers that migrate to Version 12 can see performance improvements through better buffer utilization, multi-threading and storage enhancements.  And with QMF 12, all QMF objects and data sources are available to any application via REST and JAVA APIs. 
Most important, upgrading to QMF 12 for z/OS can save significant mainframe costs as it enables QMF batch and TSO workloads to run on ZIIP engines.

60% of enterprises see APIs as critical to executing their business strategy of integrating  IBM Z into their hybrid architecture and modernize their mainframe architectures.  Unfortunately, many businesses believe the only way to access data via RESTful APIs is to replicate that data off the mainframe. 

Today, 10 of the 20 world’s top banks already use z/OS Connect to access core banking systems.  When IBM Data Virtualization Manager is added, any piece of data on the mainframe can also be accessed real-time with RESTful APIs.  And any development team will be able to access IBM Z applications and data as easily as their distributed counterparts. 

Join us in this session where we will focus on how z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition and IBM Data Virtualization Manager enable enterprises to access live mainframe data.  It will include a demonstration, with live Q&A during the webinar.

Do your applications need real-time information from transactional data sources in IBM Z, such as IMS, Adabas, VSAM and Datacom? Would you like to access and update that data without any data movement or ETL process? For many enterprises, the ability to update and access IBM Z data regardless of where/how that data is stored  has been transformational in their modernization and AI  efforts.

IBM Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS (DVM) allows users and applications access to z/OS and enterprise data sources in real-time, providing comprehensive data easily accessible by any application. It supports modern APIs to virtually all z/OS data types. Additionally,  DVM now supports access to all of this data via Db2 using standard SQL. 

Join us in this session where Helene Lyon will explain how Data Virtualization can transform your vision on information architecture and turn your valuable mainframe transactional data into a competitive advantage.
