Session Evaluation

Mainframe Modernization is on top of mind at most organization. And very much appreciated. Yet, this topic is very broad and needs to be divided into sub-domains to address specific needs. In this session Frank van der Wal will zoom in on a utility that IBM has put on the market called Z Open Automation Utility (ZOAU) and that can help out in automating sysprog tasks in a modern and automated way. ZOAU provides an abstraction layer between z/OS commands and tasks and languages like Python and JAVA. Frank will demo how ZOAU works and how to create a simple Python program that will be used by an Ansible playbook to do some tasks on z/OS.
