While mainframes and IBM i (AS/400) systems remain a strategic asset for several organizations, they must address certain challenges in the modern computing environment. These include lack of agility, cost inefficiencies and skills shortage.
Mainframes have to be scalable in times of rapid enterprise growth and peak operational loads. A number of firms perceive mainframe maintenance as a cost-intensive process. With the emergence of cloud-based services, mainframes can demand significant capital investments initially. Increasing regulatory requirements has led to complexities in ensuring business continuity. The absence of new generation technicians in mainframe technology is another hurdle.
However, AS/400 mainframes remain the benchmark of reliability and security in the contemporary landscape. Organizations continue to depend on these systems for heavy-duty data processing.
