GDPR, GLB HIPAA PCI-DSS Basel III Sarbanes-Oxley CA SB1386 Federal Information Security Management Act “Red Flag” Rules (FRCA)5 are facing us with serious requirements to protect the data we're hosting and to be able to report on a variety of criteria the Auditors may ask for.

ZOWE – The zGui (r)evolution - First hands on experience and best practices
The evolution of the mainframe had a variety of GUI approaches, some lasted for a while, some never took off at all. However, it was never THE COMMON ecosystem used by all products and all vendors. At the 2018 SHARE, IBM, Rocket Software and CA Technologies announced ZOWE – THE z ecosystem to securely manage, control, script and develop. Of course, an announcement is probably not the final truth, but from what I’ve already seen and used I’m more than enthused. This presentation shows you the basics you need to understand ZOWE, summarizes the steps you need to use it and illustrates how ISPF online and batch applications are supported from the GUI world.
