ASAP University: WAPL – Using Automation to Do More in Less Time

Wednesday, March 15
11:00 AM EDT



  • Roy Verweij, System Engineer for IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS and System Automation for z/OS, Belastingdienst

Workload Automation has always been a tough mountain for developers to get on top of. Usually the reserve of dedicated scheduling teams and operators, often it gets saved only for Production. Your developers spend their testing time running things manually and reinventing the wheel. Anything that heads to Production generally gets built by hand with the scheduling definitions often being "tested" by eye, or the first time they run.

IWS for zOS 9.3 introduced Workload Automation Programming Language (WAPL), which allows you to bring scheduling to the application lifecycle, saving Dev time and highlighting scheduling issues early. Many more things can be automated and integrated, such as clean-up and adhoc changes saving Ops time too.

Learn why and how Roy Verweij implemented WAPL at Belastingdienst and the impact it has had on his company.

The Evolution of ITSM Towards Cloud Service Management and Operations

Wednesday, April 12
1:00 PM EDT



  • Ingo Averdunk, IBM Distinguished Engineer, Cloud Architecture and Solution Engineering, IBM Cloud

With the evolving landscape towards cloud, IT Service Management (ITSM) has to change as well to stay relevant. This session will highlight work done by the Cloud Architecture and Solution Engineering (CASE) workstream on Cloud Service Management and Operations (CSMO). CSMO refers to the entirety of activities – organized in persona, processes, and tools – that are performed by an organization to plan, design, deliver, operate and control IT and Cloud services offered to customers. We will cover reference architectures for CSMO, and its solutions for Incident Management and Problem Management. We will show the tool chain implemented by CASE using relevant IBM and 3rd party capabilities. In addition to the tools, we will further present the impact of Cloud on processes and the organization. In closing, the recent addition to the Bluemix Garage offering for Service Management is presented, supporting clients in this transformation.
