For decades Mainframes have been the workhorse of Enterprise IT, providing performance and reliability. But now these antiquated systems are an impediment to business agility. As businesses prioritize Digital Transformation, they require an agile and scalable computing platform such as Hybrid Cloud. Enterprises need to modernize their Mainframes and Legacy applications but are often held back by conflicting priorities and transition costs.
Moreover, Mainframe and Legacy Modernization continues to be a challenge due to business dependencies, availability of skilled resources, closed architecture, and complexities in migrating to cloud platforms. This Digital Forum will address the challenges of Legacy modernization and discuss new approaches to adopting a modern technology platform. Experienced thought leaders will discuss novel strategies and proven solutions to ensuring a seamless and high impact legacy migration.
Topics covered include:
Mainframe and midrange computing have served many businesses well. Their performance and reliability have enabled them to be the core technology solutions for many businesses – decades past their predicted end of life. But now the business opportunities, cost savings, and flexibility afforded with modern cloud platforms have become overwhelmingly compelling. The potential gains of modern platforms far out shadow the comfort of the long familiar mainframe.
In addition, that reassurance of reliability is rapidly evaporating as well. The ability to maintain the once familiar COBOL, PL/I, and Assembler code is now becoming an expensive and rare commodity.
However, mainframe and midrange legacy modernization continue to be a challenge for many businesses due to various factors including – business reliance, lack of insights under the hood, and tool limitations in uncovering the application functionality.

Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages.
