z/OS Overview Training

This course is a combination of lecture, discussion and hands-on lab sessions. This course covers 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 as needed.
