Why Read This Report

The death knell for mainframe has rung every year for the past several decades, but it's not going away. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals are doubling down, migrating off, and integrating mainframes with new, customer-facing technologies. In a pragmatic cloud world, if you don't properly mesh disparate operational strategies, you'll end up with disjointed approaches that threaten the lifeblood of the business. This report discusses key approaches taken by enterprises in financial, government, and retail verticals; what's worked and what hasn't; and best practices for I&O pros.
