Dispelling the Myths of Mainframe Modernisation
March 07, 2017
“Legacy Modernisation” is currently one of the top three items on the CIO agenda. How can you mitigate the business risks associated with major application change such as re-writing or re-hosting – whilst lowering the cost of ownership associated with the legacy mainframe platform? Similarly, is the legacy platform an inhibitor to other business innovations?
Join the “myth busters” from TmaxSoft and LRS at one of our forthcoming seminars for a presentation and discussion on how application rehosting can address these challenges and concerns. We will present actual use cases of customers who are successfully transforming their IT to support digital business, reducing costs and driving competitive advantage.
TmaxSoft will share how GE Capital rehosted and modernized their business-critical Portfolio Management System (PMS) suite of applications--with over 5 million account schedules, 382 interfaces, 1,700 concurrent users, and 3.5 million transactions per day running against 71 million lines of code-- from an ancient mainframe environment to a modern, open Unix environment using OpenFrame, with astonishing results.
LRS will share how it helped a client potentially save up to £500K per month in punitive payments by ensuring an on-time and speedy migration of multiple legacy document archives with regulatory retention requirements. Over two terabytes of documents needed to be retained for FSA and compliance reasons resulting in significant risk that the z/OS mainframe would need to be retained until a new open systems archive solution could be installed and all documents migrated with full integrity, retention and on-line access.
We promise straight talk and practical examples to help you put a realistic, end-to-end strategy and action plan in place, which delivers rapid and consistent ROI whilst mitigating risk.
