What is modernization, why does it matter, and how do you know it’s a good investment? We’ve been doing IT for long enough that we have begun to learn that age-old lesson that newer isn’t always better. Yet, the world is rapidly changing, and there’s a need for technology that can enable the newest initiatives to respond to these challenges and opportunities.
In this session, we’ll look at how we discern between getting value from modernization versus just spending on the latest sizzle. Then we’ll consider some of the new ways that technology can support keeping up with, and even creating, the curve. Finally, we’ll bring it all together with a review of the role of IBM Z in responding to the future, from the earliest days through its most leading-edge capacities and prospects.
