Too much is riding on the mainframe as a strategic IT asset to ignore what is in store if you do not act decisively to maintain and protect your mainframe’s operational integrity.


Whether your priority is to reduce the costs and risks associated with the daily maintenance of your mainframe, to achieve greater efficiencies by adopting new innovative approaches to mainframe management or to streamline your portfolio of mainframe technologies, CA Services can be a strategic partner in helping you derive maximum results from your mainframe investment.


The IT executives that take the steps necessary to continue to innovate on the mainframe will be the executives that will set their enterprise apart to compete in the application economy.

Portfolio of Mainframe Offerings

Implementation Services

When it is time to upgrade to the latest release or implement a new solution, you want to minimize operational risk, get your mainframe team productive quickly and demonstrate a strong ROI. Our experts on CA Chorus™ Software Manager, the CA mainframe solution stack and underlying mainframe technologies can deliver prescriptive approaches built from thousands of site engagements and decades of experience.

Whether you are primarily focused on schedule, the scope of work or cost, CA Services can assist to plan for, design, implement and verify a successful transition to the latest advances in mainframe management from CA Technologies.

CA Services for mainframe will work with you to select or create the optimal approach for your specific situation.

An important first step is to gain a detailed understanding of your organization’s requirements. Deployment Playbooks from CA Services help expedite implementations with proven, pre-built content. They include comprehensive questionnaires—spanning business drivers, functional requirements, governance initiatives, use cases, reliability and security concerns, operating constraints and more.

Gathering this critical information at the outset of a project helps ensure that subsequent phases deliver results that align with your business needs. Solution Run Books from CA Services provides customized instructions covering all aspects of your installation, including start-up and shutdown procedures, backup requirements, risk mitigation, security controls, tuning information and troubleshooting guides.

Conversion Services

CA Conversion Service is a full-suite, cloud-based service based on 30-plus years of CA best practices that cover the entire migration lifecycle, involving the replacement and migration of competitive tools to CA’s industry leading capabilities. Available in three service tiers—full service, assisted and self-service—the offering spans beyond typical conversion to include five phases: requirements, data preparation, planning and design, conversion and build, test and validation, and finally, rollout.

Often, the biggest factor in undertaking a full migration isn’t money; it’s time. With the cloud-based CA Conversion Service, organizations can not only reduce the upfront migration costs, but also more seamlessly and quickly realize the annual cost savings of the replacement solution. Plus, there are additional intangible benefits—such as working with a single, focused vendor like CA to eliminate the effort and administrative burden of working with multiple providers. CA Conversion Service delivers a consistent migration experience across departments, geographies and applications to help you realize fast time to value, reduced risk and increased rate of success.

Core System Consulting Program for IBM z Systems®

Your mainframe infrastructure is an integral part of your overall IT ecosystem. For large, complex enterprises, the mainframe can act as a fulcrum where mainframe management efficiencies and cost savings ripple through everything downstream in IT that is directly—or even loosely—coupled to your mainframe platform.

At the same time, accumulated layers of software from scores of vendors, redundant functionality, unnecessarily high licensing costs and missed opportunities for integration and automation can undermine the value of your mainframe infrastructure.

Core System Consulting Program Services from CA Technologies helps address these challenges so the value of your mainframe infrastructure can benefit your broader IT infrastructure as you compete and grow in the application economy.

These services help you leverage your existing mainframe investments, assess ways to improve efficiencies and uncover opportunities for additional integration and automation within your mainframe portfolio and with other computing platforms.

What sets CA Technologies apart from other mainframe vendors is our breadth of mainframe expertise, proven solutions that span IT silos and computing platforms, from mainframe to mobile, and our commitment to your mainframe management success through better utilization of software.

CA Services offers a proven, collaborative methodology to evaluate the current state of your full mainframe software portfolio, consider scenarios of a preferred future state and then assess the associated financial, operational and strategic benefits to achieving your desired results.

These services offer a comprehensive program that, with sponsorship from client executives and best practices from CA Services, delivers measurable, long-term results. 

Staff Augmentation Services

Staff augmentation services extend the staffing levels of your mainframe team with experienced resources from CA Services. Staff augmentation engagements may be of any duration and be used for clearly defined, fixed-scope projects or for more open-ended contracts that span multiple years or multiple CA solutions. With staff augmentation from CA Technologies, organizations facing reductions in mainframe staff and expertise—or anticipating needs for dedicated mainframe skills on scheduled projects—can offset internal risks and direct labor costs by working with a trusted mainframe partner.

Assessment Services

With budgets, time and staff resources in short supply and with execution so critical, strong execution and prioritization is more necessary than ever. Assessment services from CA Technologies will help you accurately evaluate your current state and discover trade-offs, document considerations and prioritize opportunities for achieving a desired future state.

CA Services offers assessments for a wide range of situations. A few examples include:

  • Best practices and product-usage assessments

Mainframe Value Program

In-depth assessments evaluate results in areas such as alignment to business goals, performance, reliability and maintainability. CA Services delivers a comprehensive report with recommendations to do more with your mainframe solutions from CA Technologies.

Optimization Services

Given the volume of work conducted by your mainframe, even incremental gains to optimize performance, reduce CPU consumption and streamline processes can pay enormous dividends. The challenge is that the large volume of work combined with the complex systems, databases, applications and networks involved means that your staff may lack the time and/or expertise needed to reach and maintain a more optimal state.

With over 40 years of heritage and experience, CA knows the mainframe. Optimization services from CA Technologies can help you:

  • Discover low-effort, incremental changes that deliver huge gains in performance
  • Objectively evaluate your product usage and alignment to best practices
  • Correct erroneous or outdated configuration settings
  • Implement cross-solution integration and automation that has not been fully deployed or has been overlooked
  • Perform periodic top-to-bottom healthchecks that deliver meaningful results

Delivering Business Value

Your mainframe delivers great business value for every record it stores, transaction it processes and customer it helps to support. No other platform offers the security, reliability, efficiency and cost-effective results available on the mainframe.

With the pervasive use of cloud computing, the drive for greater adoption of virtualization, and pressure to achieve a complete digital transformation, there is no better time to extend the inherent strengths of the mainframe by enlisting CA Services.
