Despite many heralding the end of the road for mainframe systems, these systems continue to be vital components in enterprise IT and are still considered a strong choice for enterprises that need large processing capacities for high-volume transactions. Notably, such systems offer superior and reliable performance delivered on the back of their unique computing architecture. However, with the pace of digital transformation picking up, most enterprises are evaluating their mainframe systems for better optimization and compatibility with modern platforms and applications. Limitations around the availability of skilled resources also influence enterprise decisions in this regard. Enterprises are seeking partners with innovative solutions for faster application deployments, intelligent optimization, and integration with modern hybrid environments.
