Mainframes and AS/400
Mainframes and AS/400 remain a strategic asset for several organizations. Mainframes do come with their challenges in the modern computing environment. The main challenges include lack of agility, cost and skill shortage. Mainframes have to be scalable in times of rapid growth and peak load. Some companies feel that maintaining mainframes is an expensive affair. With cloud-based services emerging, the initial capital investment in mainframe can prove costly.
