IBM Mainframe Modernization Service
If your business applications exist in an IBM mainframe environment, you may be dealing with higher costs of maintenance, a diminishing workforce of mainframe specialists, and a shrinking pool of vendors from which to choose. Additionally, your business agility and competitive edge may need the boost that only today’s mainstream technology can support.
The need to cut costs while keeping up with change is a challenge for all companies, but these challenges are more acute with companies on legacy mainframes. They’re losing their ability to pursue opportunities because their IT departments must focus on maintenance instead of innovation. Their applications may also be at risk, because they must make the uncomfortable decision between a large-scale upgrade and keeping their applications in a costly environment.
The IBM Mainframe Modernization Service Process
Modernization offers several benefits, but it’s important to take risk and impact into account. Astadia’s professionals are familiar with the many complex technologies used on an IBM mainframe, and our approach is centered on finding the right strategy to fit your specific needs and goals.
Astadia has more than 20 years of experience in assessing, replacing, rewriting, migrating and modernizing applications across disparate platforms and languages. We can help you implement a mainframe modernization strategy that brings your IT framework into alignment with your business goals. That strategy could include:
- Reducing costs by offloading mainframe development and testing to the desktop
- Integrating your mainframe applications and data across other platforms
- Migrating your entire mainframe application portfolio to a distributed or cloud platform and decommissioning your mainframe hardware
- Migrating your mainframe to a lower cost mainframe solution
