Course Description


This GDPS Metro Implementation Workshop is intended for IBM technical professionals (IT specialists, IT architects, technical sales specialist, etc) who will be involved in implementing or architecting a GDPS Metro (previously named GDPS/PPRC) solution. Project managers who will manage a GDPS Metro implementation project will also benefit. The workshop is also intended for technical customer staff (systems programmers, storage specialists, automation specialists, operations/production control specialists, etc) who are new to GDPS and are looking to develop GDPS skills because their job directly or indirectly involves GDPS. Note that customer attendance is restricted to customers with a valid GDPS Metro license or GDPS/PPRC license.

Please note that we do not teach Parallel Sysplex / Netview / System Automation.

IBMers are not supposed to directly enroll, they have to go through Isabelle Yriarte first with a PO – that’s the IBM process. Or directly pay by Corporate credit card if they have IBM management approval to do so.
