Whether you withdraw money at a cashpoint, pay with a credit card, book a flight or buy a train ticket—mainframes are always at work in the background. They do the crucial work and ensure that everything runs securely and without data loss. More than 70 percent of the Global 500s work with mainframes. The digital transformation poses a big challenge for enterprises today, and the modern mainframe plays a crucial role in addressing this challenge. As the typical platform for the "systems of record" of most large organizations, its unique features support today's requirements regarding performance, flexibility and security and enable companies to successfully manage the challenges of an online world. This course will give an overview of the modern mainframe, its concepts and features and their role in enterprise computing. Topics addressed range from mainframe architecture, hardware and operating systems (z/OS, z/VM, Linux), Mainframe application development and transaction processing to state-of-the-art workloads such as blockchain and analytics. In addition, industry success stories will be presented. weniger
