Enhancing the value and power of your mainframe software environment
Finding the optimal balance
Pressured to achieve greater returns on their investments, today’s IT leaders seek simpler, lower-cost mainframe software environments. They are determined to establish an optimal balance between money spent and value gained. On the cost side, they want to eliminate redundant applications, reduce vendor numbers and build more predictability and flexibility into service contracts. On the value side, they expect best-in-class functionality as well as the ability to extend their current mainframe infrastructures to support modern workloads. Achieving this balance requires a cost-effective approach that mitigates risk.
Organizations that team with IBM to lower IT costs and complexity through optimized software management can achieve significant savings and value. Professionals with the IBM Software Migration Project Office draw on proven methodologies and tools—as well as their own extensive experience—to assess your current software portfolio and related expenses, then make recommendations for lower-cost software products with equal or better functionality. In addition, they can help you prepare for a migration, including training your IT staff, then expertly manage the transition. Finally, they can leverage leading IBM software solutions for the IBM System z® environment that deliver superior levels of performance, efficiency and flexibility.
