The Birthday Celebration Continues…

By | June 4, 2024

Open Mainframe Project hosted a webinar on Thursday, May 23 to celebrate the mainframe and discuss what’s next. We took a look back at the fantastic innovations that have powered the IBM Z mainframe platform from its beginnings 60 years ago, which includes some of the folks who have shaped and witnessed the platform as well as those who are leading the charge into the next 60 years.

Speakers included:

  • Cheryl Watson, CEO and Co-Founder at Watson & Walker
  • Derek Britton, Mainframe and Modernization Advisor
  • Donna Hudi, CMO at Phoenix Software International
  • Ed Jaffe, CTO at Phoenix Software International
  • Jakub Balhar, Principal Product Owner at Broadcom
  • Jessielaine Punongbayan, Support Engineer and Tech Evangelist at Dynatrace

As mentioned in the video, on May 22 Cheryl Watson partied pretty hard for her birthday. So though we didn’t sing to her – we’d like to again wish her a wonderful birthday.
