PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT Webinar 1 - Mainframe as a Managed Service: Don’t Forget Performance Management! ..... August 17th .....

The Mainframe Service Provider (MSP) industry has been growing at a steady rate with many companies engaging with MSPs to outsource the management of their mainframe environments. Companies do this for a wide variety of reasons including staffing flexibility, environmental and maintenance costs, and growth flexibility. With an interest in capacity planning and performance management, Scott Chapman and Peter Enrico of Enterprise Performance Strategies, Inc. have worked with both MSPs and clients who outsourced their environments to MSPs. They have also worked with clients that were just mulling over the idea of doing so. Their experience has enabled them to develop a unique level of insight.
During this presentation, Scott Chapman and Peter Enrico will discuss common pitfalls and issues related to the performance management of a mainframe environment that has been outsourced. If your mainframe environment is currently outsourced, or you are thinking of outsourcing, and want to learn more about these pitfalls, then this webinar is for you.


PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT Webinar 2 - Performance Measurement and Monitoring When Your Mainframe is a Managed Service ..... August 31st .....

In the first part of this webinar series, Scott Chapman and Peter Enrico will discuss some performance management pitfalls outsourced customers need to be aware of to ensure they are being provided for optimally by their Mainframe Service Providers (MSPs).
During this presentation, Scott Chapman and Peter Enrico will discuss some performance management reporting that should be monitored to help ensure the services they are being provided are to the greatest benefit to the client customer, and not just to the MSPs.

Exploring z/OS XCF Message Traffic Measurements ..... Date TBD .....

XCF is the postal delivery system of the z/OS platform. As the central messaging facility, it is what allows systems and applications to communicate with each other. Relatively recent and key advances to z/OS have made regular monitoring and tuning of the XCF environment much less interesting. However, understanding your intersystem communication and traffic is important when trying to understand certain types of system slow-downs and bursts of message traffic. During this webinar, Peter Enrico will explore and discuss some of the key XCF measurements still worth regularly monitoring.
