Mainframe Migration


Total Cost of Ownership. This single calculation is what drives many organizations to consider migrating from the IBM mainframe to a number of other platforms. Why? Because real dollar savings are a pathway to fund other key initiatives in IT. The options for moving off of the mainframe have multiplied in recent years and include:

  • Re-architecture: All mainframe components and data are converted to target environment languages, interfaces, and databases.
  • Emulation: All mainframe components are moved to Windows, UNIX, or Linux and an emulation software package is used to mimic the old mainframe.
  • Mid-range Re-host: The primary target environment is IBM Power Systems (Series i, AS/400).

Lower Costs and Increased Productivity

Software choices based on open standards result in lower costs, while modern management and development tools lead to productivity increases.
