Tag: Mainframe Modernization
Thank you for joining us in Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent 2021. We hope you are enjoying all of the educational content and big announcements. If you missed anything from our Global Partner Summit or just want to recap, we have rounded up the most relevant launches, program updates, and educational content available for the AWS Partner community. Reminder that virtual options for re:Invent breakout sessions will be available December 6-10.
Accelerate Your Mainframe-to-Cloud Journey with the AWS Mainframe Modernization Service and AWS Partners
We are excited to launch the AWS Mainframe Modernization service, a unique platform for mainframe migration and modernization allowing customers and partners to plan, migrate, modernize, and run their on-premises mainframe workloads to a managed development and execution environment on AWS. The service enables two proven and popular patterns—replatforming and automated refactoring—and has the goal of mitigating the risks and accelerating mainframe-to-cloud projects.
To increase business agility and keep pace with the rapid changes in the industry, the development lifecycle for mainframe applications should be accelerated. This post discusses how organizations who replatform their legacy mainframe applications to AWS using the NTT DATA UniKix product suite can implement a modern DevOps workflow with NTT DATA tools and select AWS services. The CI/CD pipeline explained in this post will help you speed up the development, testing, and release processes.
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.
Organizations migrate and modernize mainframes to AWS for agility, cost reduction, and for mitigating mainframe risks. Learn about the key agility attributes needed by mainframe workloads, and explore the evolutionary approach to quickly and incrementally modernize from a mainframe monolith to agile AWS services. In this post, we focus on application and infrastructure agility to change functionality, configuration, or resources quickly and inexpensively.
Many organizations have core business and critical workloads running on Adabas and Natural in a mainframe environment. Customers are looking for ways to reduce cost, increase agility, and improve IT workforce productivity. For this purpose, Software AG provides products and services to deploy applications to AWS. Learn how Adabas and Natural applications can be deployed and modernized on AWS, and run in a resilient and scalable way to deliver high service quality and business value.
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.
With an increased pace of innovation and demand for faster development and testing cycles, customers with mainframes want to adopt DevOps practices for their z/OS environments. To facilitate these practices, IBM offers the IBM Z Development and Test (ZD&T), a hardware emulation solution that allows regular z/OS software to run on the x86 platform by emulating the IBM Z instruction set, IO, and other devices. Learn how to create your own IBM ZD&T and z/OS environment on AWS.
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.
