Thanks In Five Languages – ITSO 2015 Tour

(Originally posted 2015-12-10.)

I’ve been very lucky (and kept busy and challenged) these last two months.

In addition to my usual case load of customer situations I’ve had the enormous privilege of participating in the ITSO 2015 Mainframe Topics tour. I’ve presented whole-day sessions on Performance and Availability in five cities: Amsterdam, Paris, Warsaw, Vienna and Bromsgrove.[1]

The main topics have been:

  • Software Pricing and Performance Specialists’ role in it
  • z13
  • zEDC

I’ve learnt an enormous amount, and some of the questions have been really good. Several participants have opened my eyes by sharing experiences.

And I’ve met splendid people – both old friends and new.

I’ve injected some of my experiences, where I hope it’s been useful to.

So this is really a “straight out of my brain onto the page” thank you post to all who participated.

And I hope next year I get to author some slides of my own and take them on tour.
