To Modernize or Not to Modernize

Presented by

Jeff Winter, SVP and CMO, Rocket Software

About this talk

The conversation around modernization is an old one: do you stay on your IBM® i or IBM® Z platform and enable modern technologies, or do you spend the resources to move to a distributed system? A recent whitepaper from IDC entitled “The Quantified Business Benefits of Modernizing IBM Z and IBM i to Spur Innovation,” sponsored by Rocket Software, looks behind the scenes at why companies decide to modernize their platforms or migrate away, and the business impact of those decisions. Join Jeff Winter, SVP and CMO of Rocket Software, as he takes a deep dive into the IDC whitepaper, focusing on: • The story of two businesses interviewed by IDC—one on IBM i, and one on IBM Z—and their journey to the decision of whether to modernize or replatform • Two key misconceptions in the market about modernization and the data that proves them wrong • Additional quantitative and qualitative business impacts of both modernization and replatforming
