Topic 1 : IBM Z in the API Economy
Abstracts: Cloud and mobile applications reshape the way enterprises and systems interact. RESTful APIs that use JSON message formats are the predominant standards for new application development. Powered by APIs, new innovative applications can now be developed with ease and speed. This, in turn, facilitates quick delivery of newer applications through mobile and other IOT channels, improving both customer reach and engagement. IBM® z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition provides a framework that enables z/OS-based programs and data to participate fully in the new API economy for mobile and cloud applications.

Workshop: Restful APIs using zOS Connect
Abstracts: IBM® z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition (z/OS Connect EE) makes exposing a CICS® program through a RESTful API quick and easy. By the end of the session, you'll know how to:

  • (1)  Create and deploy an API from within IBM Explorer for z/OS®.
  • (2) Associate and map an API to a service representation of a CICS program, no code required.
  • (3) Test an API by using the built-in Swagger UI.


Topic 2 :  Hybrid Cloud with IBM Z
Abstracts: Cloud platforms are a key enabler for these emerging digital services, incorporating public, hybrid, and private cloud platforms. Many of the emerging digital applications and micro services that provide these innovative new capabilities are built to use the agility of cloud platforms. However, for the applications and services to function effectively, they must harness the application logic and business data that is held within enterprise systems, such as IBM Z. We propose a new hybrid cloud architecture to build a hybrid Kubernetes cluster with x86, Linux One and z/OS nodes. Native z/OS applications can be easily integrated into the cloud environment and fast auto-scaled by Kubernetes. It will greatly help enterprises quickly explore the potential of core assets, build an open service platform and improve their business ecosystems.

 

Topic 3 :  From Data to Insights:Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations with IBM Z
Abstracts: Mainframe plays vital role in today's digital economy. About 80 percent of the world's corporate data resides or originates on it. A recent research of Z clients showed cost reduction and outage prevention as the top 2 factors where customers want to focus operational efforts. Along with the growing operational data in volume and complexity, IT Operation Analytics will lead to operational excellence.  Market needs for combined ITOA capabilities with end-to-end capability. IBM has provided a board analytics solution to help customer in addressing pain points including cost, risk, skills and agility from data to insights, all with embedded expertise and recommended next actions, which builds the Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations with IBM Z.
