RACF Administration in the Digital Age
Companies that operate mainframe systems are presently facing hard times. Most of their mainframe experts are about to retire, and only few young IT specialists can fill the gap. However, the mainframe remains a key technology today and in the future – one that has to meet constantly rising demands also for the RACF administration.
Digitization, new legal provisions, and organizational changes require that mainframe systems quickly adapt to new practices and regulations. This forcesorganizations to develop corresponding strategies, including ways to simplify RACF-based authorization management and to make it more secure.
