10 posts in this topic

Hi I did MCA in 2009 also i have first class throughout academics.I have worked in a BPO about 8 months and again i want to enter into IT. I made an enquiry about Mainframe at Maples,DSRC and IMFT.In maples already around 15 batches are running it will take more time to bring the first company for placement. Since i'm a 2009 passed out i have time duration of 6 months (jan'11 to june'11). Also there is a limit of 3-5 companies only for each.In DSRC there is no job assured program and fee is around 33k for application.About IMFT i know some candidates get through IMFT. cost is 20k only but we have to pay 2-3 months salary based on CTC once if you got placed. They told me that they will bring more number of companies there is no limit as in Maples.So suggest me some ideas friends. :rolleyes:

As per my experience I'm working on mainframe from past 3 years on Z/OS. I found it really vast and very interesting job. Here i deal with all the concepts of Mainframe like JCL, CICS, Batch, HSM, SMS, Storage, IMS, DB2, Scheduling, DASDs, Tapes, VTS, Printers, SDSF, TSO, IPL, L-Pars, Work load Distribution among L-Pars, CLIST, REXX, Automation except COBOL, SQL querries and all coding stuff.

I think CDAc is best option to enter again in IT industry...there are lots of company visits all of the batches,somy advice is to get the job assured then CDAC ki best option...!!!!!!!!!!!

Mainframe technology is awfully greatly in demand in IT companies now days. There may be smaller number of opportunities in mainframes if we compare with other technologies like java/j2ee. But it’s not that you won’t get any job in the same sector. _______________ Bridal underwear

C-DAC is the BEST place for IBM Mainframe Training, as they provide IBM supplied materials and class room teaching is also very good, here u have the chance to visit IBM MAINFRAME Machines, as people say it is a LIFE TIME ACHIEVEMENT to see a Mainframe Machine. But the main thing is that recently from 2011 August batch there is no placements, 1 or 2 companies visiting but only 1 people r selecting for each drive...... We have seen their excellent placement track records in 2010 and joined there. But it useless now....... No companies r coming from past 1 yr....... if there is any recruitment only 1 will get the job out of 50-60 candidates.... And recently the size of the batch is tooo less like 3-10 per batch. Overall now it is good for training but not for placements.....
