GT Software to Address Leveraging IMS for Mobile, Web and Cloud at SHARE Pittsburgh

August 4, 2014

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- GT Software, the leader in helping enterprise organizations unify business information across any platform, data format or programming language, today announced that Dusty Rivers will present at SHARE Pittsburgh 2014, August 3-8 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. During the session “IMS in the Connected World – Why You Should Pay Attention!,” Rivers, GT Software’s principal technical architect and a five-time IBM Champion, will examine how IMS remains relevant in today’s business world and ways it can be incorporated into mobile, cloud and analytic applications.

The program will take place on Wednesday, August 6 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in Room 402 in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

“While some may view IMS as becoming extinct, it remains popular in today’s businesses. In fact, last year 75 percent of Fortune 1000 companies included IMS in their technology portfolios,” said Rivers. “Yet many users are unaware that it’s possible to utilize lightweight development tools to integrate with IMS data and transactions, without a need for coding or changing the underlying mainframe applications. During my presentation, I will highlight how businesses can leverage these solutions to easily create user-friendly, self-service applications for mobile, web and cloud.”

SHARE Inc. is an independent association providing enterprise computing professionals with continuous technical education, training and networking opportunities, with IBM as its year-round Strategic Partner. SHARE Pittsburgh 2014 is focused on “Driving Enterprise IT Content, Networking and Innovation.”
