Why It's Important to Attend

With as much as 40 percent of the world's mainframe programmers set to retire in the not-too-distant future, companies are scrambling to staff up or risk expensive application outages and other problems. New graduates, however, are turned off by complex and antiquated mainframe development environments, opting instead for positions that offer the opportunity to work on less difficult and more exciting technologies like cloud. What can companies do to attract the best and brightest into their mainframe application development ranks? They can provide modernized development tools that enable new mainframe developers to be productive.

During the session, Liebert will discuss important new enhancements to the Compuware Workbench that include faster and more efficient file and data management capabilities -- including the ability to edit complex IMS databases -- as well as more robust debugging functionality, all designed to significantly boost developer productivity. The session will feature a live demo of the Compuware Workbench.
