The Open Mainframe Project, launched in August 2015, has announced its development goals for 2016.

The Linux Foundation collaboration is designed to help Tux get its flippers around big iron. When it was launched at LinuxCon in Seattle last year, its backers included IBM, CA, CompuWare, BMC, SUSE and others.

Hitachi Data Systems, DataKinetics, Sine Nomine Associates and East Carolina University have joined the project. ®
