Mainframe Modernization in the Hybrid Cloud World
Mainframes are an integral part of an enterprise is a no-brainer. Today mainframes manage almost 70% of the world’s production IT workloads. 92 of the world’s top 100 banks, 18 of the 25 top retailers, and 23 of the world’s top 25 airlines rely on mainframes. The overall global mainframe market is expected to grow at the rate of 6-8% annually. Like large enterprises, even smaller organizations are moving their mainframe workloads, applications, and databases to the cloud to make mainframe applications and the value they provide available as a workload whenever needed.
