    Session Evaluation

    Just like Newton explained the attraction between objects by the Law of Gravity, we see a metaphor in data and applications. As datasets grow, they become harder to move and are likely to attract applications rather than moving data to the applications. As we all know, data on IBM Z both is significant in size as well as in freshness. We might ask ourselves why do we need to ETL, morph, and manipulate data off the platform to another place? And although this paradigm already exists for many years, we see that IBM has recently put together a significant amount of technologies that makes it worth while to re-evaluate Enterprise Data strategy. In this session you'll learn how data on Z might fit in such Enterprise Data Strategy while complying to a hybrid multi-cloud approach.
