About the Course

This extensive course is designed to educate participant on mainframe application programming. The course begins with introduction to mainframe computing and architecture. It further presents participants with programming using various software/subsystems installed on z systems. The course completes by facilitating the participants to do a project work on topics covered thus far.


Users who want to pursue a career in IBM z systems application programming can benefit by going through this training. This course is also a foundation course for further advanced learning in mainframe systems such as DB2 database administration, z server system administration, CICS TS administration, etc


Basic experience in application or system programming using any programming language along with understanding of principles of computer operating system (OS) is required to attend this course.


Upon completion of this course students are expected to understand and apply:

  • Why IBM z systems are used for large scale or massive computing and its remarkable scalability in terms of throughput and storage and their foolproof security capabilities.

  • z systems' architecture and various subsystems or software installed on them and how they together define a efficient and cohesive computing facility for any business application.

  • Work on z system programming environments such as TSO/E, ISPF, issue relevant commands, DB2I (interactive), ability to define various kinds of datasets and further usage, using monitoring and troubleshooting facilities such as SDSF.

  • Interpret and also develop JCLs for various batch job submission requirements. Code and execute IBM provided utilities such as DFSORT (for sorting), IEBGENER (copy or print datasets), etc., and thorough knowledge of selection of one utility over other.
