Whether you withdraw money at a cashpoint, book a flight or buy a train ticket—mainframes are always at work in the background. They do the crucial work and ensure that everything runs securely and without data loss. More than 70 percent of the Global 500s work with mainframes.
Prof. Andreas Polze will examine the subject in his course “Enterprise Computing,” offered with experts from the Academic Mainframe Consortium. The Consortium supports academic education on mainframes and aims to advance the research and the development in this field. This course provides an introduction to the topic and will particularly address mainframe architecture and application development. Prof. Polze and his team will further look at databases, transactional systems, the topic of security and mainframes, and storage management.
The workload of this course equals 2 ECTS credits.

Prof. Andreas Polze's group Operating Systems and Middleware develops programming paradigms, design patterns and description methods for large, distributed component systems. The group’s work focuses on the integration of middleware with embedded systems and the predictability of their behavior with respect to real-time capability, fault tolerance and safety.
Wolfram Greis started working in IBM mainframes more than 40 years ago. In 2008 he co-founded the European Mainframe Academy in Germany and Switzerland to educate new mainframe talent and to reduce the proverbial skill gap. He is author of the German book „Die IBM Mainframe Architektur” and did many presentations at national and international conferences all over the world. He is initiator and president of the Academic Mainframe Consortium, a not-for-profit organization to foster and support mainframe education at academic institutions.
Philipp Brune has been Professor for Business Information Systems Engineering at Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) since 2008.
Before joining HNU he worked for many years in software development, business analysis, project management and IT consulting in the financial services and automotive industries, namely for HypoVereinsbank (Germany’s second-largest bank at that time) and the BMW Group.
He holds a PhD in physics and studied Physics and Computer Science at the University of Karlsruhe (now Karlsruhe Institute of Technology - KIT). His research interests include diverse topics (/ a wide variety of topics), ranging from information security and business information systems engineering to mainframe computing, web and mobile development and software engineering education. He is a board member of the non-profit Academic Mainframe Consortium (AMC) and for many years has been teaching mainframe topics as an adjunct professor at the University of Applied Sciences Kempten and the J. W. Goethe University Frankfurt/Main.
