Modernize and optimize

Reuse existing assets for new ways to do business

Enterprise Modernization on z Systems - Freedom Through Design

Many large organizations run their core enterprise business applications on IBM z Systems®. Customers want options to do business on-line -- a browser on their home computer, a smart phone, or tablet computer. Mainframe applications need to meet these demands for new services. Using existing application investments, rather than replacing or rewriting, is a time-tested approach to gaining competitive advantage. Enterprise modernization reduces complexity, removes constraints and improves business agility. Modernized applications are more flexible and can support the changing needs of the business. Enterprise Modernization is realized faster and with greater economies by:

  • Reusing application assets that run your business
  • Simplifying architectural complexity
  • Improving quality and performance
  • Using modern GUI tools to develop and maintain for any architecture
  • Web enabling legacy applications through new services
