Heroes Deserve a Medal – Get Yours at SHARE Anaheim

Mainframers have been I.T. heroes for fifty years, helping their organizations grow, prosper, and transform on the strength of the mainframe platform.  In 2014 we celebrate fifty years of mainframe – but we also celebrate fifty years of the heroic actions of I.T.  The mainframes – and the I.T. heroes who support it – have always been ready to lead business into revolutionary ways of advancing the enterprise’s success.  Many of you can (fondly?) recall nights and weekends spent in the data center ensuring the mainframe was ready to deliver the “next big thing” for your business.


That kind of effort deserves recognition, and so BMC has created a Mainframe 50th Anniversary commemorative coin, which will be distributed at SHARE Anaheim March 10 -12.  If you will be at SHARE, stop by booth 511 to get your serial-numbered commemorative coin.  Display it on your desk, to remind you – and anyone who stops by your desk – of all the amazing things you have done with the mainframe.

And, of the incredible things yet to come.
