Mainframe as a Driver of Innovation: With the rise of cloud computing, Big Data and enterprise mobility, the mainframe is expected to enable technology innovation for years to come. More than half of both U.S. and global respondents (51 percent and 58 percent, respectively) believe the mainframe is or will be a highly strategic platform in their cloud computing efforts. Flexibility in the delivery of new services, scalability and security were cited as the “most important” (U.S. ranking) and “important” (global ranking) benefits in leveraging the mainframe to enable cloud. As such, 63 percent of respondents globally and 65 percent in the U.S. are either currently evaluating or planning to deploy new tools that enable the rapid deployment and cost-efficient provisioning of private and hybrid cloud services on the mainframe platform in the next 12-36 months.“We’re seeing a market in transition. Companies around the world are assessing how they can rapidly adapt to new cloud models and enable the delivery of new business services to meet the ever increasing demands on IT,” said Mark Combs, distinguished senior vice president, Mainframe, CA Technologies. “The mainframe continues to be a strategic platform that delivers the flexibility, scalability and security needed to meet these new service demands and business priorities.”
