Run legacy mainframe applications with modern agility
Business often moves faster than legacy applications can follow, making it harder for you to adapt to shifting market trends. Running mainframe applications on Azure combines modern means and familiar ways, so you can modernise without abandoning the applications you rely on. You’ll rapidly address your customer needs, at scale, without sacrificing functionality, security or compliance.
“COBOL … was not built with cloud computing, the internet of things, and dev ops in mind. All of this equates to a perfect storm where today’s business needs can no longer be solved by yesterday’s technologies.”
Spend less, and make room to grow
What opportunities could you take if a big annual bill were suddenly cut in half, or if you found new space in your buildings? Mainframe migrations deliver cost savings up to 80%, freeing up funding for other modernisation projects that support your organisation’s digital-transformation goals for application performance and cost management.
“We estimate that we will reduce our overall costs by about 35 percent—in lower server-acquisition costs; lower power, cooling, and real-estate costs; lower software-licensing costs; more efficient use of storage; and management efficiencies.”
Connect specialized skill sets to future potential
Maintaining mainframe applications that require specialised skill sets is risky and expensive. Many of these skills are retiring from the workforce, and once those skills have gone, they’ve gone for good. Migrating your organisation’s mainframe applications to Azure reduces its dependence on an increasingly rare skill set, while adding speed and scale for the future.
