IBM Mainframe Academic Initiative – Why it’s Important

From the inception of the IT-oLogy vision, one key message has remained constant over the last three years. Our epidemic around the shortage of IT talent must certainly address one key fallacy. Mainframes are not dead. Every one of the most important industries in this country rely on enterprise servers to manage large, integrated, high volume business.

As a founding partner in IT-oLogy, IBM contributed hardware and software to help launch computing environments to help grow IT talent with real hands-on learning. Most importantly though, IBM has offered the IBM Mainframe Academic Initiative free to universities and tech colleges. This full suite of curriculum and applied industry examples is being delivered by many of the IT-oLogy academic partners.

Still, we need more higher education partners to join this program.  Take a look at the following videos and see WHY.
