Open Mainframe Project member SUSE will be hosting its annual SUSECON on May 18-20 as a digital event again this year. John Mertic, Director of Program Management, will be giving a presentation titled, “Death of the mainframe? Hope Open source modernized the mainframe.”

The open source movement has rapidly become the leading way to develop code for today’s smart and agile businesses. This session will cover how an “open mainframe” is the perfect solution for deploying open source on an enterprise computing platform. Attendees will learn how the open source community has gathered around the mainframe platform and how open source projects such as Zowe, COBOL and more are the starting point for open development. The session will also cover how the mainframe platform is a natural technology for Linux deployments and how the mainframe community operates within the wider construct of the Linux Foundation. Attendees will also learn about Open Mainframe Projects’s endeavors to promote the next generation of mainframers with its OMP internship program and Women in Technology initiatives.
