We’re happy to announce that we’ve scheduled a new Containing z/OS Software Costs class. This class will be held in Sarasota, Florida, on August 28-30, 2017. With IBM’s latest 4% increase in z/OS software, we’re sure that this class will help you contain that increase.
This 3-day class discusses a multitude of ways to reduce your IBM software bill. Because z/OS software frequently accounts for up to 1/3 of the cost of running a mainframe, it’s the easiest place to achieve savings. So no matter if you work in a large or a small site, we’re sure you’ll walk away with many ideas for reducing your software costs and increasing the value of your z/OS systems. And of course, we’ll provide all the latest information about IBM’s newest pricing options of MWP (Mobile Workload Pricing), zCAP (z Collocated Application Pricing), CMP (Country Multiplex Pricing), and zWPC (Workload Pricing for Cloud). These have the potential to allow you to add additional workloads to your system at a minimal cost. You can save even more if you use the information from the class to exploit these in the most cost effective manner. We hope and expect that by taking part in this class, you will reduce your monthly software bill by thousands of dollars.
We’ve been getting rave reviews from the students who have taken this class, and it’s really unique. For more information about the class, and how to register, please see Containing z/OS Software Costs.
To encourage companies to send both a techie and a software contracts person, we are extending our 50% discount to additional students from the same company. The price for the 3-day class is $2100 for the first student and $1050 for additional students from the same company.
Note: This course is also available as part of an on-site workshop, where we combine classroom education with interactive sessions and analysis of your configuration and your bills to provide specific recommendations for your particular configuration. The cost of the on-site 3-day class will vary from customer to customer, depending on the size and complexity of your configuration. If you are interested, send us an email and we can discuss what we can do for you.
