This week I entertained a little talk about provisioning automation for z/OS. IBM has created a provisioning tool for z/OS that is part of the z/OS base. I talked about our experiences with the tool. It is changing to Ansible technology now. Next technology hop. Let’s talk tech again to refrain from doing things.
Later that same day I started a course called Google Cloud Platform Essentials.
We are somewhat behind on z/OS. That is a major understatement.
We done do tapes anymore, and MVSGENs, but it still feels like an upgrade from a horse to a steam engine.
Yet, I believe if done well the z/OS tools available today should allow us to catch up quickly.
There’s no technical obstacle. It’s only mindset.
