The Evans Group provides consulting services and training for the z/OS environment. We specialize in highly technical projects of short and medium term duration, including: ad-hoc support and problem determination; systems level assembler development; and training in the CICS environment.
With over 25 years of Systems level experience, company founder Russell Evans is well known for his expertise in assembler coding and all aspects of CICS. Russ regularly speaks at Share, and recently traveled to Reykjavik, Iceland, to deliver presentations on exploiting CICS threadsafe capabilities, analyzing CICS transaction dumps, and analyzing CICS system dumps at Guide/Share Europe. All of Russ' presentations and technical articles are available on the downloads page.
