Benefits of Mainframe Modernization on AWS
Increase scalability and business agility
Reduce costs to experiment and innovate
Modernize outdated technology and attract new talent
Once migrated to AWS, customers reduce costs by 60%-90%, allowing them to gain flexibility to experimentation and innovation. Customers can break data silos, make mainframe data available to a wider range of stakeholders, and gain access to analytic tools to derive more value from this locked data.
Modernizing with AWS allows mainframe customers to transition to modern languages such as Java. Moving away from to a modern infrastructure allows access to a large pool of talented architects and specialists for design and operation. This resolves the mainframe retirement skill gap and attracts new talent to modernize core business workloads.
