Mainframes are Here to Stay

People have been predicting the end of mainframe technology for decades. Unfazed by the naysayers, mainframes, the work horse of large enterprises have been quietly chugging away tons of computing workload for decades, without much fanfare. Mainframes typically handle large workloads, be it data processing, transaction processing, or being the systems of record. The larger the workload, the more cost effective they are. At high workloads they become the cheapest, most reliable, and most available system out there.

As per IBM sales figures, the platform is thriving with more processing power added. IBM continues to enhance the platform with new technologies and innovations such as cloud, DevOps, Open source software platform etc. Besides, exiting mainframe is not a panacea in every situation. Understanding the customers’ needs and providing a tailored approach with due appreciation of their business needs and technical roadmap is the right approach.
