This Vivit SIG Talk session will feature speakers who will share their vast knowledge and experience on Mainframe to Universal Discovery (UD), Data Analysis with Operations Bridge and Vertica into BVD.

Shown below is an outline of the agenda and topics:

  • Speaker:  Chip Sutton
    Integrate IBM mainframe & iSeries (AS/400) into Micro Focus Universal Discovery:
      IBM Mainframe and IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) environments continue to play a very critical part in today’s corporate IT infrastructures, processing some of the most valued and important data. Learn how one of the world’s largest insurance companies brought their IBM environments into the modern era by extending their Micro Focus Universal Discovery (UD) platform to include the key IBM systems.

    The company’s former process of conducting manual audits was a time consuming, resource intensive, and outdated way of doing things at best. Attendees will:

    -     Learn how the combination of Micro Focus Software and EView Technology provided a cost-effective,
          comprehensive, automated, and
    real-time view of their business services across their multi-IBM system enterprise

    -     Hear a brief overview of the architecture of the solution and the business benefits
    -     View a short demo of the seamless integration

  • Speaker:  Brian Bowden
    Advanced Data Analysis with Operations Bridge:  Every day big data becomes bigger, and each day enterprises are coming up with new use cases for the data they have at their disposal. Finding systems that have the capabilities and the horsepower to deliver on the use case is a challenge. Greenlight Group will review one such use case, and how Operations Bridge System Collectors and Operations Bridge Analytics were leveraged to harness the power of big data to process millions per day and provide near live dashboards of critical IBM DataPower statistics for one of its customers.

    We will show real world Perl scripting examples for you to try in your environment.
  • Speaker:  Jay Batson
    How to Integrate Vertica and other 3rd party data sources into BVD:  Our customer had reached a point where flexible dashboarding and data sources were required for their users for performance over time data. In this presentation we review:

    -     The Vertica data source and query
    -      How to connect to that source using a Perl script
    -      How to post the data to BVD using Perl and curl
    -      How to manipulate the data channels in BVD
