The week of March 11th, mainframe professionals gathered in Phoenix, Arizona to attend the SHARE conference. The conference was a great chance to network, attend technical sessions to brush up on new skills, and meet the vendors and companies continuing to invest in the mainframe.

The mainframe has never been more relevant, but companies are facing a variety of challenges as they embark on digital transformations. Changes in staffing, as well as the ever-increasing amounts of data and security risks pose unique problems. The high attendance at several security sessions also highlighted how valuable SHARE is for Mainframe Security teams. Attendees at SHARE participated in BMC’s Lunch and Learn where they learned more about BMC’s vision of the self-managing mainframe and our newest solution, AMI for Security, to help them solve these problems.

BMC was also excited to participate in the Women in IT events, and we are glad to be a part of the initiative to encourage women to pursue careers in enterprise IT, and support those that are already part of the industry.

We loved meeting customers and partners in our booth and learning more about their business challenges and how we can help them, as well as how they are currently using our products and their feedback. Many of our customers came by to talk about their experiences with MainView and to learn more about MLC and how to define Container Pricing workloads.

We hope to see you at the next SHARE event in Pittsburgh August 4-9, 2019.

If you missed an opportunity to speak to us at our booth, you can learn more about the latest and greatest from BMC at If any of the BMC sessions piqued your interest, but you didn’t have time to follow up with us during the conference, don’t hesitate to drop me a note on LinkedIn and I will make sure to connect you with the right person.
