in over a decade, how are you going to bring your mainframe workforce up to speed?

of mainframe personnel up to speed on ALL ASPECTS of the new z Operating System with minimal cost and minimal disruption to their work schedule.

1. Can you afford to have ANY mainframe personnel lacking z/OS V2.1 skills and knowledge?

2. Can you afford the overall cost and lost productivity of training your workforce using classroom training?

Realistically, ALL your mainframe personnel need to do some training on this one: the first major z Operating System update in over a decade.
