Making the most from your IBM Mainframe investment is essential.
Times are changing and it looks like the mainframe is making
a major comeback. Decisions should not be based on IBM's advice
alone. It is essential that independent opinions on Mainframe
upgrades are considered before spending the large sums of money
involved. You will find here highly focused upgrade information
in plain English, links to articles.
This will place the key information at your fingertips and help
you make the most profitable decisions.
Now is a very exciting time for
Mainframe Enterprise strategists and IT architects; the rise of Service
Oriented Architectures (SOA) fuelled by the need for intelligent Business
Integration and technical virtualisation is putting the mainframe back
in the heart of things, where it belongs. Our strategy section will
provide sound independent mainframe strategic advice, information
and important links, with a the focus firmly on rescuing ourselves
from the complex multi-tiered environments we are lumbered with today.
To back this Mainframe Strategy you will need a clear understanding
of your IBM Mainframe upgrade options. In our hardware section we look
at the exciting options open to those looking to make the most of their
mainframe, including Hipersockets, zIIP, zAAP and IFLs. In our software
section we look at the important IBM mainframe software, such
as COBOL, DB2, Z/OS and the associated upgrade options. The mainframe
is turning into the mother of all servers and you have to get the
security you love and the power you need. IBM are coming up with
new Mainframe Hardware and Software all the time and we will keep
you bang up to date. Our mainframe software directory
offers the most comprehensive listing of software resources available for the mainframe.
If your company produces software for mainframes please send us the
details so that we can add it to the directory.
To complement this, regular new exclusive articles on SOA, Virtualisation,
IBM Mainframe Hardware and Software and exciting Mainframe developments

expert, William Hoffman with 18 years of Mainframe experience is an
enthusiastic advocate of intelligently implemented SOA and Business
Integration. "... people are only just realizing that the mainframe is
central to all of this, it is all falling into place..."
