The need to cut costs while keeping up with change constantly challenges all companies, but these challenges are more acute with companies on legacy mainframes. Legacy mainframes create a huge IT footprint, require too much power and tie you down with other costs such as monthly license charges (MLCs). You lose the ability to pursue opportunities, because your IT departments must focus on maintenance instead of innovation. Your applications may also be at risk, because you must make an uncomfortable decision between a large-scale upgrade and keeping applications in a costly environment.
Modernization offers several benefits, but it’s important to take risk and impact into account. With our help, you can implement a modernization strategy that brings your business goals within reach.
