New technologies on the mainframe seem to be all the rage. Attend most user groups and you’ll find out how they work and how they were built. But what can you use them for? How do they return revenue to your business or reduce costs? How do they make your jobs easier?  Here you’ll find some examples that are already underway at a wide variety of businesses to improve their IT environment.

Topic areas that can exploit these technologies include Application Development, Security, System Monitoring, Data Access and Analytics.
