Selecting a mainframe performance analytics platform
Almost ten years ago I started exploring the possibility of moving away from homegrown mainframe performance analytics at the Bank of Montreal. Over a few years I built a long list of possible products and vendors, put together a cross disciplinary team who shared my interest, and eventually selected a vendor and tool to work with. This is (mostly) the story of how we went from long list, to short list, to selecting a single vendor.

The future of AIOps on mainframe – data discovery, ServiceNow, and ChatOps
While ServiceNow has a comprehensive and robust ecosystem for distributed data/components, there are still many challenges for organizations trying to marry IBM Z and ServiceNow. Enterprises infrastructure teams need the ability to discover and map IBM Z resources into ServiceNow to unlock better incident remediation, better visibility across teams, and reduced mean time to repair. In this session you will learn how IBM Z Discovery for ServiceNow CMDB works and why "ChatOps" is becoming so pervasive for AIOps. We'll discuss how ChatOps can be used for incident management in reducing the mean time to resolution, and why it can be a useful practice for Z shops wanting to leverage ServiceNow as a central source of truth tied to events stemming from mainframe.

Stormy Monday – Reactive and Preventive Capacity Management Processes
Monday has been a typical day where application outages occurred. Often, due to the complexity of the enterprise, Tuesday and the rest of the week were just the same! We will discuss how effective capacity management reporting is used to quickly return the business to service. "What reporting should be reviewed and communicated in the first moments of an outage? -What additional performance reporting is critical to resolving an incident? -What reporting and capacity management processes contribute to improvements to the resiliency of the enterprise? -What are some of the forecast variances that occur in predicting future capacity? Who is responsible for resolution? -How should capacity management reporting be effectively used in the post-mortem process?"
