Arcati Mainframe Yearbook 2011

It's been out for a couple of weeks but I still want to mention it as it always contains valuable information for all mainframers. We have the usual vendor directory listing vendors, consultants and service providers in the mainframe environment. The media guide points out some newsletters, magazines, blogs, user groups and information resources. Do take a look at it, it contains some good references. The yearbook closes with some technical information, time tables and the mips tables for the z196 are already included too.

But of course there's also the annual User Survey providing a snapshot of the System z user community’s existing hardware and software configuration, and also their plans and concerns for 2011. it also tracks "the growth of mainframe integration with Web services, cloud computing, and other areas of new development".

You can download the Yearbook for free over here.

As I always say, do check it out !
