Mainframe Value: Bigger Together
Mainframers know the platform is bigger on the outside. They know first-hand that—beyond hardware and software—it’s people who drive leadership for the business and support the achievement of big goals.
How big? Mainframe systems play a central role in many of the most fundamental aspects of our lives and work. Businesses around the world rely on the platform for its unmatched capability and value.
For those businesses, the ability to achieve and maintain leadership requires continuous transformation. While the specifics may look different for every organization, transformation doesn’t mean throwing away the technology investments you’ve made, but rather improving and building on them. Sometimes the key to moving forward is with new technologies. Sometimes it’s with a tried-and-true platform. Most often, the right answer is a combination of both.
As we surge toward the future, the need for increasing scale and speed will continue to drive change across all industries. Customers demand faster, more connected experiences. The mainframe is an essential part of that customer experience.
As mainframe expands its integration with hybrid cloud, the value of the platform expands as well. An open and connected mainframe allows developers and IT of all generations to use common tools and strategies that make possible important work in fields ranging from AI and machine learning to cyberthreat defense, data management and much more. All while leveraging the mainframe’s inherent strengths—which most definitely include its people.
Our full potential is realized when we work together, linking the known with the new, so that we can build upon today’s IT investments to create even greater value tomorrow. It’s this kind of bigger, collaborative thinking that empowers businesses into the future.
