  • Session Number: 22312
Wednesday, March 14, 2018: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Charles W. Johnson
Principal Consultant


Many years, the discussion of CM was on the back burner as it was a mature platform. As things change they stay the same and need to continue to evolve. The mainframe continues to be an integral cog in an enterprises IT environment. This leads to the continue evolution of Capacity Management as it relates to the mainframe. Organizations have begun to review, evolve and mature the CM process to keep up with the demands for today. The mainframe is involved in applications and services that now include the Cloud and hyper-converged technologies. To make CM for the mainframe more business centric, there must be a move away from the component view to Service and Business.

This presentation will cover the following topics:

  • CM for the mainframe in the past – strengths and weaknesses
  • Why organizations are reviewing CM and their current tools
  • What changes in scope and processes require a philosophy change
  • Incorporation of Business and Service views
  • Plans and addressing new technologies
