IBM Master the Mainframe World Championship
IBM (NYSE: IBM) has announced the expansion of its Master the Mainframe Contest to include a first-ever IBM Master the Mainframe World Championship competition.
As part of IBM’s attempt to develop the skills of a new generation of mainframe experts, the competition will highlight the modern capabilities of the mainframe, designed to handle today’s complex Big Data, Cloud, Security and Mobile computing workloads.
The Championship is designed to assemble the best university students from around the globe, who have demonstrated superior technical skills through participation in their regional IBM Master the Mainframe Contests.
The students will showcase their applications on April 7, 2014 in New York City where a distinguished panel of judges will determine which student earns the distinction of “Master the Mainframe World Champion.”
To kick off the World Championship, IBM has launched the Master the Mainframe World Championship website.
