IMPACT2021 | Mainframe Modernization Challenges and Strategy – Brian Hoare

The Mainframe is still strategic and will exist for a long time to come …

The projection of the Mainframe in the IS evolution roadmaps requires the implementation of a modernization and optimization strategy to meet the following challenges:

  • Visible costs in the ISD budget and increasing due to the opening of the Mainframe (APIzation) which generates additional demands on the Mainframe
  • A complex IBM billing model that requires expertise and constant effort to control it
  • Less and less mastered treatments and applications with the gradual departure of the knowledgers (skilled people)

Take advantage of Mainframe resource analysis to improve performance and control costs:

  • Obtain relevant information on the specifics of your production environment thanks to a real-time analysis platform
  • Improve your understanding of resource usage, quickly identify a problem to instantly adapt configuration and capping
  • Reduce costs by optimizing MSU consumption by automatically redistributing available resources in real time
