Although Cloud computing has been around for some time and has been widely adopted, many large organizations do not completely comprehend the benefits and cost savings that can be accomplished by transforming mainframe applications to the cloud. Or, they do realize that there’s a clear advantage but they’re seeing too many hurdles in undertaking such a large-scale migration project.
However, research has shown that if managed well, a mainframe to cloud migration is definitely worthwhile. Most of the companies that migrated their mainframe applications to the cloud reduced their operational cost between 70 and 90% while gaining higher efficiency and increased flexibility.
The risk of technical debt
With the current speed of technology innovation, it is now more important than ever to modernize legacy systems. Most mainframe developers are nearing the age of retirement and it has proven very difficult to preserve the mainframe knowledge. As a result of this technical debt will lead to bugs and other user-facing/impacting issues.
Experience and project mastery are key
It goes without saying that there’s risk involved when transforming business-critical legacy applications to the cloud. As mentioned above, risks can be managed and great advantage can be achieved, provided the project is managed properly. Collaborating with an experienced technology partner significantly increases the success factor.
Asysco is a mainframe modernization specialist. We address the key concerns businesses have around mainframe modernization by providing a unique, automated application conversion solution to help them transition to the cloud faster and easier, and at a guaranteed time and cost.
Opening mainframe applications up to innovation in the cloud
Our unique IP converts all the existing legacy artifacts (code, data, interfaces, security,…) to a new cloud-proven format while preserving how the application works, minimizing disruption to the business while opening the application up to development and innovation in the cloud.
We can lead the migration using this technology or set it up and leave the customer in control – and we engage both directly with the enterprise, or indirectly with system integrators who want to leverage our technology with the businesses that know and trust them.
