An Introduction to JCL 

Join us Tuesday, July 26, at 11:00 a.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. CT for our complimentary educational webinar "An Introduction to JCL."
One of the many differences between the mainframe and open systems environments is the mainframe's Job Control Language, or JCL. In z/OS® systems, nothing takes place that doesn't involve using JCL to define and allocate the datasets, memory, disks, tapes, subsystems, and other resources needed. JCL's over 50-year history means it's extraordinarily powerful, complex, and often incomprehensible to users new to the z/OS platform.

In this month's webinar, we'll discuss what JCL is and isn't, its purposes, importance, and the major JCL control statements and their use.
