Creating Business Value from Mainframe Capacity Data 

A webinar by SMT Data

The mainframe is often seen as a very expensive ‘black box’. This webinar discusses how to answer questions like ‘who is using how much, when, at what cost and why?’. The answers to these questions help decision makers across the organization understand how their decisions affect mainframe costs. We will go through how to map technical measurements such as SMF to applications and business activities, and how do deal with the tradeoffs between what is technically correct, what is fair, and what is simple to implement and understand.

Join us as we delve into required data, common approaches, pitfalls, and trade-offs, drawing on years of experience to unlock business value from vast capacity and performance data.

Practical information

The webinar will be in English and is a free event. At the end of the webinar there will be an interactive Q&A.
