Mainframes today are the most preferred secure data servers for technology-aware organizations. Despite all aforecasts the amount of work Mainframes are processing around the world is ever more increasing while the amount of sites is decreasing every year. Major banks, insurance and manufacturing companies as well as government departments rely on Mainframes running their businesses – with zero outage.
Key challenges operating Mainframe infrastructure are about cost control, securing skills and driving innovation while integrating new platforms to achieve an increasing efficiency.
When done correctly a “Managed Mainframe Services” framework is agile and adaptable to changing business requirements and rationalized for optimized usage of MIPS when delivered through a highly leveraged sub-capacity and automated utility environment. That means: simplify and virtualize. A Mainframe was the first „kind of a processing cloud“ ever and leverages the fastest processors on earth.
e-ito’s agile „Managed Mainframe Services“ enables enterprises to lower TCO, increase quality of service, convert fixed cost to lower variable cost, and provide needed skills and expertise to manage it. Our knowledge represents decades of experience – this is fundamental.
Size it right – leverage!
