Modernizing Mainframes And Midrange Platforms: The Time Is Now
On Demand

Modernizing legacy applications running on mainframe and midrange platforms can be daunting given the other critical imperatives for IT organizations. However, taking no action doesn’t address the outsized risk and cost. In this webinar, experts from the Accenture AWS Business Group and Techstrong Research will dig into data from a recent PulseMeter survey of the industry.

The panel will discuss the catalysts for modernization and the key technologies enabling the reliable and safe migration of the applications. Discussions will include technical nuances of modernization, including approaches to ensure data is available during the process and best practices for migrating business logic.

 Additionally, attendees will learn the following:

  • How to quantify and communicate the risks of not modernizing these legacy platforms
  • The reality of fully decommissioning the mainframe/midrange platform
  • The pros and cons of different modernization approaches
