Tuesdays at 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT) - Preparing for Your Next Upgrade of z/OS
Sooner than later, you will be planning for that next upgrade. What will you need to change in your system? Which system datasets will need to move; which can be left behind?

Just like moving to a new home, where we clean out what we no longer use; moving to your new system should also encourage you to move only those things that are still required or being used. How do you know what will be needed? What will need to be changed in your upgrade?

NewEra Software’s Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) has the tools to help you get the answers to those questions and many other questions about your z/OS configuration. Attend our webcasts to learn more about how ICE can help you save time and money in your planning and execution of your next z/OS upgrade.

Thursday, May 9 at 12 pm EDT (9 am PDT) - PAGENT on ICE - The PAGENT Inspector
Two endpoints desire to communicate in a secured manner over an unsecured public network, namely the Internet. You want to provide the best possible security environment for protecting both the host at each end and the packets of information that will be exchanged between the parties. There are many possible Network Security methods you might consider to create the desired state of security. Several such methods use or leverage the IBM Communication Server for z/OS Policy Management Agent, a TASK named PAGENT.

Employing best practices in the security and maintenance of the PAGENT configuration - Policy Management Services - is central to the underlying theme of this webcast.

During the first 15 minutes, you will learn how the PAGENT Inspector fits into the overall Policy Management Services architecture and, in doing so, ensures that the Policy Agent is supported by the best available combination of practices. The remainder of the time will be spent in a real-time, live demonstration showing the product synergy NewEra Software has attained through the integration of Image FOCUS (IFO) and The Control Editor (TCE).

Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) helps you create and maintain a highly available, safer and more secure IT environment for your business applications, based on its ability to:
  • Maintain and increase the availability of z/OS and therefore the access to applications that run on the mainframe;
  • Lower the cost of providing z/OS services and administration protocols while automating change management and impact review, enforcing enterprise standardization and reducing risk;
  • Extend security and controls beyond those provided by legacy security managers such as RACF, CA ACF2 or CA TSS. Reduce manual jeopardies in change management and increase real-time audit on administrative events.
