Detailed Agenda with Abstracts
  • IBM Z Mainframes for IT Architects and Data Scientists by The Fillmore Group
  • Fifty percent or more of a large enterprise’s data – especially the lifeblood online transaction processing (OLTP) data – likely reside on IBM z Systems (aka mainframe) computers. In many organizations, mainframes remain a black box inside the “glass house” data center. Yet the rich transactional data they contain are crucial to predictive analytics, such as fraud detection, and real-time data warehousing applications such as point-of-sale market basket analysis.This session is intended for IT Architects and Data Scientists who don’t have a mainframe background, but have been tasked by lines-of-business to develop new competitive insights into customers, supply chains, insurance claims, financial transactions – and/or any of a variety of other opportunities to turn an enterprise’s OLTP data into Big Data.
  • The Machine Learning Advantage
  • Data is everywhere and organizations are looking to uncover meaningful insights from their data. IBM offers a complete machine learning solution to help you extract hidden value from enterprise data with IBM Machine Learning for z/OS. This solution helps organizations quickly ingest and transform data to create, deploy and manage high quality self-learning behavioral models. Using IBM z Systems data securely, in place and in real time Machine Learning for z/OS can help you more accurately anticipate customer and business needs.
  • Put your most valuable data to work for analytics
  • Today, businesses need real-time predictive analytics insight derived from transactional data as it is flowing into the organization. Organizations have become dependent upon real-time decisions and are therefore dependent upon real-time data. Critical initiatives such as customer interaction, counter-fraud, and risk management require real-time facts. Data latency and movement work in opposition to real-time decisions. This session will discuss IBM technologies like DB2 Analytics Accelerator, QMF, Accelerator Loader and more that are helping to deliver extraordinary analytics insight in unison with the most current transactional data and new offering like Machine Learning for z/OS.
  • Turning Data into a Competitive Advantage with Data Virtualization on IBM Z
  • It’s a new age of data integration for a new age of IBM Z. Today, customers want real-time information - available anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Older data access methods can't reach all your data, leaving your most valuable sources of information in the dark. Moving or replicating mainframe data is too slow, too rigid and lacks the enterprise reach needed to support new cognitive analytics, cloud and mobile. The solution is now available in IBM Data Virtualization Manager for z/OS, providing universal access to data regardless of location or format. Because no matter how fast data is collected and moved, it will never be as fast as real-time, in-place virtual access. Discover how data virtualization on IBM Z can evolve your information architecture, and turn your most valuable data into a competitive advantage.
  • What You Need to Know About DB2 11 and DB2 12
  • DB2 12 is the latest release of DB2 for z/OS, it is built on the core capabilities of DB2 11, and gives businesses the capabilities needed to meet the business demands of the future by providing scale and speed for next era of Mobile and Interconnected devices along with application support for Cloud, Analytics and Mobile. It delivers faster analytical insights and leverages advanced speedy In-Memory database performance. This session will also convey the latest on DB2 for z/OS continuous delivery, which delivers features faster than ever before.
  • The Evolution of Database Tooling
  • Learn how IBM is continuing its investment in the DB2 utilities and tools portfolio to answer your needs today - and more importantly in the future. We know you have a choice in software providers and we have a strong commitment to your success in your DB2 for z/OS data and systems. We'll cover the current and future talking about the importance of DB2 support, self-managing DB2 systems, unification of disparate tooling and more.
