When it comes to supporting mission-critical transactions, mainframes possess legendary reliability. But they've recently begun to evolve into major players in today's hybrid multicloud world. As IT leaders face the challenges of efficiently deploying and managing software across distributed environments, they're looking to existing investments for answers.
The mainframe computer-and its ability to run a variety of workloads securely-is poised to play an integral role as data and applications interact across environments. To be successful, mainframes must support modern development practices including agile and DevOps. They'll need to use containers, microservices and open source platforms like Red Hat Linux and OpenShift for deployment and management. And they'll have to extend across environments using APIs for secure data processing.
So how do IT leaders get there? By modernizing existing mainframe apps and data and extending them to cloud; by developing new cloud native apps on mainframe; and by migrating distributed apps to mainframe Linux. It's called enterprise mainframe application modernization. And IBM can help.
