Cloud computing was popularized by commercial ventures that offer consumers access to music, movies, books, videos, and other entertainment. While those uses of the cloud broke new ground, IT teams are responding to business initiatives that take cloud computing to new levels, including the realm of mobile capabilities.
You can now work with partners, customers, internal staff, and a range of mobile audiences via the cloud. In fact, it’s becoming almost impossible to gain or maintain competitive advantage without benefit of the cloud. That’s because today’s customers have expectations that go beyond the limits of traditional service paradigms.
The most successful cloud implementations make use of mainframe application data and functions, but many IT organizations have questions about the best way unlock those applications for reuse. This solution portal is designed to answer those questions.
Our solution brief “Cloud Enabling Your Mainframe Data” gives a quick, two-page overview of the mainframe/cloud issue, and includes a practical business case.
Because Attachmate has been solving mainframe access and integration problems for 30 years, the legacy-to-cloud challenge is tailor-made for our proficiency and experience. In everything we do, we challenge the status quo. That’s how we proved that legacy systems are not as “locked up” as commonly believed. And that’s what makes our solutions superior to others on the market.
At Attachmate, we understand why IT managers are not eager to disturb the mainframe data and logic that keep their businesses running. The prospect of opening up those applications to new technologies like cloud computing can raise anxiety levels exponentially. With the right tools, however, you can take on the task with confidence.
