The Connected Mainframe: Modern Integration and Coprocessor Strategies

What happens on the mainframe doesn’t stay on the mainframe anymore. Whether for managed file transfer or advanced data analytics, mainframe integration initiatives are leading to new business innovations, improving operational efficiency and lowering costs. Join us as we explore how to securely and cost-effectively integrate the mainframe and distributed platforms to process and access data when and where it makes the most sense. We will also discuss how native mainframe FICON channels can be leveraged to provide the fastest, most secure, and cost-effective bidirectional I/O between mainframes and the rest of the enterprise.
