Masters Education Program

PARSEC’s Masters Education Program (MEP) isn't your typical online technical seminar.

What if each month you could be a part of a seminar that is geared towards creating best practices for legacy and state-of-art systems with topics such as OpenVMS Crash-Dump Analysis or IP Filtering on UNIX? Would it impress your boss if you learned new methods to ensure current relevance and utility for your company? Would it elevate your job performance, or help you solve a vexing problem? If so, save your seat now in PARSEC's next MEP!

Every month you will learn information inspired by actual case studies that you can apply on-the-spot. We pack technical and practical material into a comfortable 2 hour online session that tops off with ample time for Q&A and valued feedback. Bonus! You get exclusive access to download our extensive documentation at the time of each seminar. Here's a sample list of some of our past seminars:

  • Road Trip! VMS Bootcamp 2016 Conference Report
  • Bare-Metal System Recovery
  • Cleaning Out the Cruft on OpenVMS
  • Systemd and Other Major Changes in Redhat Linux 7
  • Monitoring OpenVMS with Open-Source SNMP Tools
  • Turning Ruby Scripts into Commands
  • OpenVMS Performance Tools
  • IP Filtering on Unix

As a perk of being a much appreciated PARSEC support customer, each session is free. If your company is not yet benefiting from PARSEC’s support, you can join any MEP for a modest cost per person. Furthermore, if you sign up for a telephone support contract with us, within 30 days of attending the MEP, we will credit the seminar cost to your support invoice. For as long as you’re a support customer, you will not only enjoy the peace of mind in knowing you’re support needs are covered, but future seminars will be free as well.


Mainframe and Linux Terminal Emulation

This session covers the various aspects of two terminal emulation products: PowerTerm Interconnect, and Nexus Terminal. PowerTerm Interconnect is a powerful terminal emulation software solution from Ericom Software. Even though Ericom has developed many enterprise-wide software solutions including RDP acceleration, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity, their IBM 3270 and 5250 terminal emulation products were among their first offerings when the company was founded in 1993. Both Nexus Terminal and PowerTerm have grown into robust, efficient terminal emulators targeted at small to large enterprises looking to have one standard tool to access many hosts. These hosts include z/OS, z/VSE, Linux, AIX, Tru64, and OpenVMS to name just a few. So, organizations running Linux on Mainframe Z systems (or LinuxONE) could benefit from having one single solution to access and maintain all hosts in their enterprise. One nice feature of PowerTerm is that it can be installed on either Linux or Windows client machines. Nexus Terminal is currently installable on all Windows versions and servers including 2016/Citrix. The 30-day free trial is a nice way to get acquainted with each product, connect to various hosts, test the scripting tools, and add-on ftp features.
