z/OS Output Management Orchestration:

Challenges, Approaches, Modernization, & Strategic Positioning 

 May 20, 2021 at 2 PM ET/11am PT


Automated report and content management for z/OS is an entrenched, critical discipline with many solutions that have been available for over 30 years. 

However, in recent years, companies are battling with elevated maintenance and upgrade costs, along with pressure tactics from some vendors to lock up critical business data, as a defense mechanism against replacement. 

SEA output management strategies include a comprehensive set of modern features and services. They also provide a holistic and effective approach for migration and orchestrating a complete approach for output management, ensuring long-term cost containment and continued product relevance via the integration of open functions.
