IBM TechXchange 2023: Leveraging the REST interface to Db2 for z/OS to make Hybrid Cloud a reality

I'll be presenting two sessions at the 2023 IBM TechXchange Conference in September. In both cases, I will co-present with one of our customers, and in both cases the session will highlight how the REST interface to Db2 for z/OS takes "hybrid cloud" from concept to reality.

In session 2444, "Modernize Your Mainframe - Db2 for z/OS Native REST Service Exploitation," I'll be joined by Rick Molera, Senior Data Engineer at American Express, to tell the story of American Express's exploitation of the Db2 for z/OS REST interface to implement secure, high-performance and highly scalable Db2 for z/OS access from a client front-end application written in the Go language.

In session 4711, "Unifying the Old and New: Zybrid Solutions with Near Real-Time and Batch Support," I'll team with John Pearson, Senior Application Architect at Wakefern Foods, to discuss Wakefern's use of the Db2 for z/OS REST interface, IBM z/OS Connect and Red Hat OpenShift to seamlessly integrate mainframe z/OS-based and cloud-based data and programmatic assets to power a customer-facing application with a mobile phone front-end.

Both sessions will take place on September 13 - right in the middle of TechXchange week in Las Vegas. Hope to see you there!
