Episode Info: In today’s episode of the “I Am A Mainframer” podcast, Steven Dickens sits down with Len Santalucia, Todd Schofield, and Jay Desai.  The panel discusses their journey with the mainframe, moving and understanding data, and where they see the Mainframe going in the future. Dickens: Hello, glad to have you with us. My name is Steven Dickens and I’m the host of the I Am A Mainframer podcast. We’re shaking it up a little bit today, where we’ve got a panel of revered guests joining me on the podcast. I think you’re going to enjoy this session we have planned for you today. The Open Mainframe Project is part of the Linux Foundation Collaborative Project structure. We’re a project that’s designed to build a community to gather around the mainframe technology. Our objective is to drive forward this platform. Without further ado, I’ll introduce some of our guests, I’m really looking forward to today’s conversation.

Thank you. Steven Dickens: Fantastic. Todd, if we could go to you next and if you could just position your role for us. Todd Scofield: Yeah, I’m Todd Scofield. I’m actually the founder and co-director of the Data-Intensive Discovery Initiative at The University at Buffalo. Prior to that, I was an entrepreneur in the sales automation space, way prior to How I ended up on this podcast is because I had an insurance problem many years ago where I had to try to figure out how I could move my insurance from New Jersey to Texas. It created a data discovery problem that turned into understanding data profiling, which turns us in today where we have this massive problem about understanding data. Steven Dickens: That sounds interesting Todd, and thanks for the headlights into th...
