z/OS Introduction

Course Code



1 Day

Participants should be ready for lots of concepts and lots of terms.
This course provides a combination of lecture, discussion and hands-on lab sessions covering the various zSeries Hardware components and the various z/OS Software components. The major capabilities of Database Management systems and Transaction Processing systems are presented as 2 major application components of z/OS for providing end-use services. Several Application Programming languages are reviewed to reveal their capabilities such as COBOL.

Hands on demonstrations are provides for TSO/ISPF, JCL, SDSF, DB2 and COBOL.
This course is designed for individuals who need a �semi in-depth� overview of IBM�s z/OS operation system capabilities and the wide array of z/OS terminology.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the Major Hardware components of the IBM’s zSeries
  • Describe channel usage and assignments on the zSeries
  • Describe a Logical Partition (LPAR)
  • List the capabilities of the Work Load Manager (WLM)
  • Describe the function of TSO/ISPF
  • List the major capabilities of the System Display and Search Facility (SDSF)
  • Describe the functions of a Database Management system
