At re:Invent 2021, AWS announced AWS Mainframe Modernization to help customers modernize their mainframe workloads with a managed and highly available runtime environment on AWS. Collaborating with IBM, an AWS Premier Tier Services Partner, AWS is extending the available application modernization options to enable customers to select the right modernization path for their business. To start, we have identified five patterns in support of a hybrid cloud approach.
The State of Utah’s Office of Recovery Services has successfully moved a 25-years-old mainframe application to AWS GovCloud (US)—in budget and on time—using mainframe modernization capabilities from Deloitte and AWS. The story behind this effort shows how beneficial such a move can be, from a day-to-day perspective and from a strategic perspective. It demonstrates that a high degree of automation and standardization makes this a riskless approach for getting rid of legacy technology such as COBOL and VSAM.
There is a huge opportunity to move mainframe applications to the cloud, allowing organizations to leverage benefits like cost reduction, improved agility, and the ability to unlock data to drive insights. Learn how the Atos SyntBots solution accelerates the testing of mainframe migration projects. We’ll also explore how establishing data and functional equivalence between the mainframe and migrated systems is made comprehensive and accelerated using this approach.
Venerable needed to modernize a core business application for managing agent commissions, so they engaged AWS ISV Partner Heirloom Computing and AWS Premier Consulting Partner Cognizant. Learn how Venerable’s Agent Management System (AMS) application was replatformed into a cloud-native Java application running successfully on AWS, through a process known as automated refactoring using the Heirloom product suite.
Recognizing the complexity of a mainframe migration, AWS customers seek proven methodologies, tools, and best practices to empower successful migrations. The AWS Partner Network (APN) plays a critical role in these efforts by providing validated technology products and services for customers’ mainframe migrations. We are excited to announce the launch of the AWS Mainframe Modernization Competency which gives customers confidence in choosing AWS Partner to team up with.
Increasing the agility of mainframe workloads is critical for organizations processing core-business processes and data on mainframes. Together, AWS and Micro Focus can help you accelerate the transition to agile services with a tool-based evolutionary approach, avoiding the expensive, risky, and slow rip-and-replace approach. Learn about the overall approach to agility and detail the transitions and Micro Focus tools for transforming mainframe workloads into agile services on AWS.
Mainframe applications have been running the most mission-critical workloads in many large enterprises for decades. It’s common for them to store, compute, and transfer terabytes of data in day-to-day processing. Modernization projects can fail or become subtly complex in execution for a variety of reasons. Learn how tools and accelerators from Infosys are helping data migration from mainframe systems overcome many technical challenges.
