You can’t beat the combination of great professionals and rock-solid technology.
For many enterprises, the mainframe is still the strategic platform since mainframes are highly reliable and scalable, with a long history of proven performance and security, which makes them ideal for processing and storing large amounts of critical data. Mainframe clients are often looking for modernization to address several key challenges. These include the cost, the scarcity of skilled engineers, and the need to integrate the mainframe into a hybrid cloud. Most of today’s enterprises have opted to modernize in place by optimizing mainframe applications and infrastructure by enhancing applications, adding capabilities, modernizing user interfaces, etc.
We have a unique combination of skills that enable us to blend the latest technologies (cloud, DevOps, machine learning, data-streaming) with traditional mainframe technologies. We help our clients to create a roadmap to transform the mainframe and expand its capabilities. The most effective steps are:
- Modernizing core infrastructure
- Modernizing user experiences and interfaces
- Automating for efficiency
Many clients around the world have relied on specialized mainframe tools for their security, system automation (…) from various vendors. Over the years, technology and especially pricing policy have changed, and suddenly clients are facing the difficult decision whether to replace these tools. Thanks to our experience in developing and implementing replacement scenarios based on IBM, CA, BMC, and open-source platforms, we can help you navigate smoothly through the challenges of tools replacement providing a risk-free transition for your everyday business.
- We always start with an assessment. During the assessment, we analyse the client’s infrastructure and current implementation. Based on its results, we develop the transition roadmap and define appropriate Proof-of-Concept (PoC).
- Then we implement and execute PoC to prove the hypothesis and address the risks early on.
- Finally, we execute the transition and perform thorough testing.
- Among other projects, we successfully replaced CA ACF2 and BMC MainView AutoOPERATOR with IBM tools.
