For many of the fortune 500 companies the mainframe is and will remain a critical component of the IT infrastructure to run business processes efficiently and process billions of critical transactions safely and securely. Did you know that: - of the world's top 100 banks, 92 use the mainframe for their core business. - The mainframe plays a central role in 23 of the world's largest retail groups. - The 10 largest insurance companies use the mainframe as a strategic platform. - 80% of the world's critical business data still resides on the mainframe. - 85% of total credit card transaction volume is still traded on the mainframe. - Mainframes handle 68% of the workload of all global IT production, but the cost represents only 6% of total IT costs. As experienced professionals are gradually retiring, a new generation of professionals are moving up as the "mainframe experts". In this session, we'll chat with a few ambassadors and leaders from Open Mainframe Project who are this next generation. They'll share their experience with mainframes, how they got into the industry and advice for others.
