At the Share confernce last week in Anaheim I did a couple presentations.
One topic was somewhat in keeping with one of the themes of the conference, Big Data. In "Predictive Analytics and IT Service Management" I cover the concepts of predictive analysis, consider common systems management challenges, and look at how predictive analysis concepts may be applied to address IT Service Management needs. Here's a link:
Another session that I did covered the topic of "Understanding The Impact Of The Network On z/OS Performance". This was an updated verison of a presentation I did at Share in Atlanta this past spring. In the presentation I discuss how to create a more integrated, end to end monitoring strategy that includes relevant network information. I cover understanding the impact of the network on z/OS performance, how to analyze typical z/OS workloads and network performance, analyzing performance using available tools (such as OMEGAMON), and recommended approaches and management strategies.
