September 23rd 2021: Mainframe Computers: Dispelling Myths, Getting to the Facts

Is your organization making major investments in cloud and other digital technologies? Concerned that your organization has been left behind in the digital revolution? Does the cost and time spent on information technology grow even as time-to-market, the ability to innovate, and enterprise agility degrade?

Concerned that your organization has been left behind in the digital revolution? Does the cost and time spent on information technology grow even as time-to-market, the ability to innovate, and enterprise agility degrade? Is leadership pointing the finger at your mainframe computers as the root of all evil? Are consultants and analysts saying that mainframes belong in a museum, not in a modern enterprise? If so, you may find your organization ensconced in a multiyear, multimillion dollar mainframe migration that strains your budget along with business leaders’ patience and the ability to compete. Reality challenges the mainframe migration myth. Mainframes are still in use by more than 70% of the Fortune 500, handle 90% of global credit card transactions, manage 68% of the world’s computing workload at 6% of the cost, and are more resilient and reliable than their non-mainframe counterparts. Mainframe revenue for IBM’s latest model grew year-over-year 62% in 2019. Yet the drumbeat to migrate from the mainframe seems to just grow louder. Join William Ulrich and his guest, Kevin Stoodley, as they examine the stark reality behind the mainframe migration movement. Mr. Stoodley is currently CTO for IBM Z. William and Kevin will look at the root cause of the challenges facing organizations today that are driving the perception behind the migration movement and deep dive into why many of these massive, high risk mainframe migration efforts may be harming your organization and its reputation in ways you may not even imagine. Listen in to find out why your organization’s technical future may be based on the very hardware systems that are automating your organization today.
