About this talk

Ensuring critical business operations and applications run effectively and efficiently both now and in the long term requires investment. When these run on the mainframe there needs to be a long-term investment strategy for the mainframe that includes innovation and transformation. In the third instalment of the 'Competitive advantage: What’s the mainframe got to do with it?' series we discuss mainframe modernisation and optimisation and the importance of a mainframe strategy. During the discussions we address the risk factors organisations have highlighted as key concerns through our research paper with Computing IT and when making decisions about modernising their mainframe and the critical role of security. In this panel discussion Ensono are joined by two clients from CSG; Steve Barr, VP Applications, and Bob Rion, Chief Architect, Enterprise Architecture & Data Centers and IBM’s CTO Marcel Mitram, tune in for an informative discussion.
