    Broadcom's offerings extend beyond technology to include programs and resources that can be customized to address barriers you face like resource constraints, change management, and system optimization.  We refer to that as "Beyond Code" – going beyond the technology to address your challenges and bring lasting value.

    I want all of my Gen customers to benefit from these Beyond Code programs, so I'm starting this thread so I can more easily share details with you. 

    We can... 

    ·Analyze and inspect your environment –and give you access to critical insights to make informed decisions for running your IT optimally.
    ·Help you build the skills you need in critical areas– we are all aware of the skills gaps present, and we're here to alleviate that.  
    ·Invest side-by-side with you on skills that will help you migrate to new technologies
    ·Allow your teams to participate when they're developing new ideas, doing hack-a-thons, and workshops together- as partners.  
    ·And, we provide a cloud-like pricing methodology that enables customers to only pay for what they use– that just makes good sense!

    Partnering with customers to bringing value beyond the code in our software is what it's all about.

    Vitality Residency Program information: 

    1) Video - Why did Broadcom create Vitality Residency Program?
    2) Vitality home page How to get started, videos from the resident students, course offerings, etc.

    Frequently Asked Questions: 
    Does Gen have a Vitality Residency Program? As of 4/20/23  Gen does not have a Vitality program, but we're working on it. We need to know that customers will partner with us to hire Gen students from the Vitality progam. If you are interested, email Susan.Brude@broadcom.com and Kim.Peelman@broadcom.com.

    Would a Gen Vitality Program only teach about the mainframe side of Gen? NO. One of the most unique benefits of Gen is the ability to support a hybrid architecture, both mainframe and non-mainframe platforms. A Gen Vitality curriculum would be created with that as a foundational tenant.

    Mainframe Essentials

    Mainframe Essentials is a collection of valuable tools from the Broadcom portfolio that are essential for all mainframe customers. Broadcom has packaged features from a variety of our products and made them available with ALL of your licenses at no additional costs. 

    Helpful Links: 

    What is included in Mainframe Essentials? 

    There is a ton included in Mainframe Essentials; choice features from Mainframe Resource Intelligence (MRI), Resiliency Insights, Software Toolkit Plug-In for z/OSMF, and SYSVIEW Essentials. My current favorite feature is Software Risk Assessment, which shows you which mainframe PTFs you have, which you don't have, a risk rating, and other helpful information (blog here). To learn about all the goodies included in Mainframe Essentials, read HERE

    Do I require licenses for SYSVIEW and MRI to use Mainframe Essentials?

    No. We packaged these lightweight versions to offer in Mainframe Essentials so customers don't have to worry about additional costs for basic functionality necessary for mainframe maintenance. Your Gen licenses are all you need to get Mainframe Essentials at no additional cost.

    Where do I get these Mainframe Essentials tools?

    In your support portal, go to where you access the Gen installation. Look for "Additional Downloads". Click to expand "Mainframe Essentials". You will see a list of all the installs that you now have at no additional cost.

    Custom MRI Assessments

    Summary: Personalized assessments that analyze your mainframe health and environment to show where to save money and allocate resources most effectively.

    Here is the MRI Assessments website: https://mainframe.broadcom.com/trymri?_gl=1*19lb0a1*_ga*NDgwMjA5NTQuMTY2ODgwOTg3MA..*_ga_WKFD99CN7E*MTcxMzE5NTQyMC42OS4wLjE3MTMxOTU0MjAuMC4wLjA.

    On this website you can:

    ·         Watch a video explaining how companies are using MRI assessments to reduce costs by 63%.

    ·         See a list of the various report options.

    ·         Request a NO COST assessment.

    ·         Contact a mainframe expert.

    Here is a brochure with details on how MRI Assessments work: https://learn.broadcom.com/hubfs/01.%20Mainframe%20Software/02.%20Assets/Security/Broadcom%20MRI%20E-Book.pdf?hsCtaTracking=72117b08-7889-44f9-8277-e7a6ae92680d%7Cd28f4919-11c8-489e-a699-5684cb0a1c86

    What does MRI stand for? Mainframe Resource Intelligence

    Why is it so hard to understand mainframe environments? Information Overload! There is a ton of information about your mainframe environment, more than an individual person can read through. MRI assessments elevate that data to actionable insights.

    Why does Broadcom include this in the Beyond Code program, for no cost to licensed customers?

    Broadcom is investing the growth of the mainframe. Two concerns we hear from customers are shrinking subject matter expertise and rising operational costs. Thus, we're providing tools to simplify mainframe maintenance and eliminate waste. These MRI assessments help with both. This blog explains more about Broadcom's Beyond Code program: https://mainframe.broadcom.com/blog/beyond-code-how-mainframes-fight-shrinking-specialization?_gl=1*9bbndc*_ga*NDgwMjA5NTQuMTY2ODgwOTg3MA..*_ga_WKFD99CN7E*MTcxMzE5NTQyMC42OS4xLjE3MTMxOTYyMTguMC4wLjA.
