CMG Webinar : Performance Formula and Reporting Fundamentals

CMG is proud to present our next webinar on Performance Formula and Reporting Fundamentals featuring: Peter Enrico, Enterprise Performance Strategies, Inc. April 23rd 2015 at 1300 – 1400 EST.

About the Webinar : z/OS generates an almost unbelievable plethora of numbers measuring all aspects of the system. Products and home grown reporting solutions often synthesize additional measurements. Turning that data into information requires understanding how the measurements are derived and how to present them in a meaningful way.

During this session, Peter Enrico and Scott Chapman will review z/OS performance formula fundamentals, and the fundamentals of performance reporting. This well organized and informative session will not only be informative and useful, but also a great “back to basics” reminder of the performance formulas and report structures that are used by z/OS performance analysts on a daily basis.
