Welcome to the new Broadcom Mainframe Software Communities! If you're here, you already know the benefits of learning, connecting and sharing knowledge and experience with other users as well as our own product experts. 

To help you get started on the new platform, I'd recommend that you visit The Water Cooler to check out some short training videos that will show you the basics. 

Our Mainframe Software product communities are listed below. Visit the ones that you're interested in and make sure that you join them and set your email preferences. 

As always, if you have any questions or feedback feel free to reach out to me directly:
