Mainframe computing introduction
This course gives participants without a specific background a general overview of the basic principles and techniques of the IBM mainframe world.
At the end of this course the participant will:
- be familiar with the basic architectures and technologies of hardware, networks, communication used in a mainframe environment;
- be familiar with the functions and the types of the IBM mainframe operating systems;
- understand the different kinds of applications and how they work in a typical mainframe environment;
No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please let us know.
Future mainframe systems programmers, operators or support professionals, without a specific IT background.
No specific previous knowledge is required.
- Computer technology basics
computer architecture • binary data • CPU • memory • I/O • IBM mainframe
- Operating systems:
functions • OS overview (MVS-z/OS, z/VM, z/Linux)
- Data communication and networks:
OSI model • SNA • TCP/IP • Internet
- Data organisation:
Dataset types • storage media • database types (Db2, IMS) • data warehouses
traditional & object oriented • programming languages (COBOL, PL/1, Java) • runtime environments (CICS, IMS, WebSphere)
