Mainframe Transformation awaits @SHARE in Texas

As a native Texan, I am excited to help host this event in my backyard of Fort Worth, Texas, on February 23-28. A short drive to the venue beats a long flight hands down.

Why ‘Cowtown’?

Fort Worth got its nickname “Cowtown” in the 1800s as it became the center of the cattle drives, and later, the ranching industry.  These days, extensive downtown redevelopment and quality of life improvements have created the nation’s largest blue zone community. Dare I say the ‘transformation’ has ‘modernized’ this Texas town?

(See where I am going with this?)

Luckily, modernizing core business applications is faster and can deliver equally positive results.  IT professionals looking to accelerate enterprise application delivery, platform integration and infrastructure upgrades must up their technical education networking game. The SHARE conference offers both.  So dust off your boots and join me at SHARE Fort Worth.
