More customers today than ever before are turning to Google Cloud (GC) as the future state for their mainframe workloads. All market trends point to historic levels of interest and action from organizations who are realizing the cloud can match the performance, reliability, and security they are accustomed to on the mainframe.

Mainframe customers are driven by three primary factors:

  • Shortage of mainframe skills andtalent
  • High and sometimes exploding costs, and the realization operating costs can be reduced 60-80% per year in GC
  • Enterprise agility and the need to do business in new ways and innovate at increasingly fast paces

  • Why modernize a mainframe
  • The challenges associated with mainframe modernization
  • An overview of the IBM mainframe
