14.00 – 14.50 Integrating IWS 9.5 with ServiceNow – Probal Sil, Elyzium
In this session we’ll see how IWS connects to ServiceNow and generates Incidents. Using the ServiceNow event action, we’ll pass variables to create the incident to give meaningful information to ServiceNow. The session will demonstrate how this is achieved and show how powerful this mechanism is.
15.00 – 15.50 Import and Deploy Workload Automation Containers on Z Container Extensions (zCX) - Marco Cardelli, HCL
z/OS Container Extension allows users to take advantage of z/OS strengths such as Security, Disaster Recovery and High Availability, and to deploy z/OS applications and Software on a Z Linux Container in the same z/OS environment, without the need to deploy a separate Linux Server.
Let’s explore how you can create a zCX instance and deploy the IBM Workload Automation containers, i.e., the DWC and the zCentric agent, on a z/OS system.
