GSE Working Groups

Working Groups are at the very heart of GSE

There are around 130 Working Groups across Europe where successful case studies are presented and practical experience in all aspects of IT is exchanged. As a result, better-informed decisions can be made by both individual members and member companies to ensure installations are more effective. The groups also ensure that all members are empowered with the knowledge to meet their professional challenges and are provided with a unique insight into future technology and solutions.

Working Groups are also key to identifying specific subjects, requirements and concerns that can then be explored fully as part of conference programmes.

Working Groups raise issues which are picked up for direct discussion and negotiation with senior IBM representatives, or which become the objectives of international projects. Active member participation in these groups is fundamental to the aims of GSE. As such, there are numerous opportunities to share ideas and solutions with industry colleagues, both on a regional and international level.

GSE European Working Group - European Enterprise Modernization for z/OS

Modernizing the enterprise can be both a modernization of the applications as well as a modernizing of the tooling used to develop and maintain these applications. Whether it is moving to a hand held device as a user interface, or utilizing the ever changing CICS & IMS protocols like web services, JSON, or whether you want to move into the modern tooling platforms like eclipse and jazz, this group covers the IBM application development tooling used in these moves. Because IBM Rational tooling is platform independent there is both a system z orientation as well as a non system z. Tools like Rational Team Concert (RTC), Rational Test Workbench (RTW), Rational Developer (RDz, RAD) and Urban Code Deploy (UCD) will have sessions’ system z specific, as well as sessions which are multi platform oriented. Also covered by the group through sessions are the Problem Determination Tools with their eclipse based front ends. So if application development is in your interest, join this group.
