Mainframes and AS400
Managed Mainframes are the preferred data servers for most organizations, even the tech-savvy ones. The amount of work being done by managed Mainframes and mainframe applications is ever increasing. Though the number of managed Mainframes has dropped over the years, the quantity of processing they do is on the rise - making mainframe services crucial. Large banks, insurance companies, and governmental agencies, especially in developed economies, depend on Mainframes to support their businesses, and consequently require robust mainframe services.
The Mainframe applications landscape poses a number of challenges for organizations: dealing with fixed costs, a shortage of skills, lack of innovation and quality, and a high cost of ownership. HCL’s Managed Mainframe Services deals with the challenges in the following manner using the software and hardware factory model:
