Data processing on the mainframe can be grouped into two main categories:
- Online transaction processing (OLTP)
- Batch processing

- Centralized computing model
- Workload management
Scope to change:

- Generating Documents in PDF Format
- Sending emails
- Processing XML
- New standards
- Access to remote systems
Wait for my next posts on it..
