Wow! What an amazing initiative by IBM. We all know the active role played by IBM in society over the years but this is next level. Coming up with a 24 hour Live Session on #IBMZDAY is just breathtaking. Before enrolling for IBM Z Day I was totally deluded that I haven't used an IBM Z, but all thanks to @Shooting Stars Foundation , because it was only through them that I got to know that, I have know IBM Z my entire life. Whether it is withdrawing cash from an ATM or making an online purchase we all have used an IBM Z in some point our life. So for all those people who are new to the IBM Z, here is a summary of what I have learned about IBM Z and IBM Explore.


The Z in IBM Z stands for Zero Downtime and is able to make 1,157,407 transactions in just a second. S390 architecture is used in IBM Z and is so much popular that around 85 out of 100 World Wide Banks use IBM Z on backend.
