The Evolving Role of Mainframe in the Application Economy

Organizations everywhere are under increasing pressure to innovate, gain competitive advantage and promote business growth by employing new business models and technologies. Moving forward, the most effective organizations will evolve from simply supporting established business processes to continuously driving innovation in the application economy where:

  • Information systems management is highly automated and integrated; IT staff are empowered to perform tasks and access relevant information quickly to accelerate service delivery and problem resolution.
  • Applications are developed to execute mobile-to-mainframe architectures and are managed as a whole, not within silos, allowing greater visibility into operations and performance.
  • Workloads are easily orchestrated to run on the best-suited server–the cloud, distributed, mainframe–enabling improved service quality to the business.
  • Data is transformed into powerful insight that helps to drive opportunity and maximize business proficiency to create true market advantage.
