Mainframes today are at an inflection point as many organisations are pursuing a “connected mainframe” strategy.

There is a treasure trove of strategic business assets that reside on mainframes. Many companies are finding ways to extract value from them, and the connected mainframe strategy is one effective approach.

Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe focus on two broad sets of initiatives – modernisation and integration.

You have to create a platform that is integration-ready within the data centre and with the outside world and subsequent business innovation. You have to connect the mainframe with the rest of the data centre infrastructure and IT processes, as well as opening the platform up to the outside world.

Organisations can integrate their mainframes with the rest of their digital environment, including their IoT ecosystem, with the use of internal and external APIs. This will allow organisations to extend, connect and reuse mainframe applications for mobile apps and IoT workloads.
