Metron’s previous webinar events proved to be extremely popular with 1000’s of attendees from more than 5 continents. Metron will kick off its new webinar series in the Fall with a host of new topics being covered.
The free webinars focus on current day issues in Capacity and Performance Management covering zOS, Virtualization and Cloud Computing. The season begins on September 16th with Charles Johnson hosting ‘ zOS Capacity Management : How to Train Your Dinosaur’.
Andrew Smith, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer commented ‘At Metron our Consultants have many years of experience in Capacity and Performance Management and we like to encourage them to share their knowledge and expertise with a wider audience. Our webinars are free to attend, educational and informative and cover cutting edge topics.
You don’t have to be a client to come along, everyone is welcome and we find that many people attend every event in the series!’
Charles Johnson, host of the first in the new series says ‘Whilst the mainframe may not seem like a hot topic, they are still around and as mainframe technology has evolved, what data is available and what data companies should be using for performance and capacity reporting has also changed.
This is an opportunity for us to share what we have done with zOS performance and capacity reporting to ensure that the individual needs of that old dinosaur are catered for, whilst adopting the best of what the new age has to offer.’
