Replacing The Greatest Generation

I call them IT's Greatest Generation -- the folks who ran the mainframes and high-end servers of an earlier time and opened the door for an unprecedented expansion of what IT could bring to businesses and their bottom lines.
Now, that generation is retiring -- and those high-end systems aren't. Problem? Not if the manufacturers of high-end servers such as IBM and Unisys succeed in their effort to ID a new generation of talent to master those platforms.
