Need some guidance on career (distributed vs z/OS)

Postby ipl1 » Sun Aug 23, 2015 4:43 am

Dear All,

after 15 yrs of distributed system support (9 yrs OS support, 6 yrs application support (mainly IBM MQ, and Java platforms)), I feel I have to change.

My possibilities:
- stay with distributed and IBM MQ
- move to z/OS, MQ and CICS support
- move to z/OS, WebSphere AppServer support

I have no experience with z/OS, except some Hercules and ADCD (very basics), but I'm very curious about it. As I see distributed is turning into ...something I don't like. I have some programming skills (mainly C, ASM and script languages), so I believe e.g. JCL should not be a problem.

Does CICS have future? MQ on z/OS? WAS on z/OS? Or z/OS at all? I really don't know what the job market will offer in the future. Thanks for your comments.
