Maximize your mainframe’s value while you move toward the cloud.

Deposit a check? Pay a parking ticket? File an insurance claim? Major finance, insurance and government organizations still rely on mainframe for its processing might, throughput and security. According to Deloitte, 74% of organizations believe the mainframe offers long-term viability as a strategic platform.

Ensono believes that you should treat your mainframe as an equal partner in your hybrid ecosystem, integrating mainframe into your broader hybrid cloud strategies to realize its full potential. The mainframe is rapidly evolving to meet today’s ever-changing technology and business environments. Ensono’s mainframe modernization solutions can make your complex hybrid cloud systems work together seamlessly. We use the full spectrum of technology solutions to make your business goals a reality — and leverage partnerships with an innovative approach to make your mainframe modernization initiatives successful.

Key Features

Add new mainframe capabilities that capitalize on cloud flexibility

Mainframe modernization utilizes modern platform capabilities in conjunction with modern application code and data constructs to fully capitalize on the benefits of the mainframe. For example, to reduce long-term capital costs and lower TCO, you can introduce bi-directional API connectivity that enables seamless communication between mainframe and non-mainframe apps. Modernization results in fit-for-purpose capabilities and integrates the mainframe with other platforms in a hybrid IT estate. A recent IDC study revealed that organizations that modernize their mainframe achieve better performance and agility at a lower cost than those that migrated — resulting in a greater overall increase in revenue.

Eliminate tradeoff between performance and cost

Ensono’s flexible, transparent mainframe capacity pricing options give you the best of both worlds. Keep the mainframe processing might and security your mission-critical applications demand, and pay only for the resources you use with cloud-like consumption pricing. Burst capacity instantly and on demand as business needs change. And, Ensono Flex® is built into all contracts, allowing you to shift workloads across platforms with no financial penalty.

Reduce risk, avoid disruption

Eighty percent of IT modernization efforts fall short of savings targets due to failure to address unnecessary complexity. A siloed mainframe creates avoidable disruption, risk and lack of agility. Mainframe modernization is a lower cost, lower risk alternative to migration that breaks down silos and reduces barriers to innovation, while Mainframe-as-a-Service (MFaaS) gives you the processing might and speed of your traditional mainframe, without the expensive overhead and maintenance headaches. Ensono breaks the modernization journey down into several value paths that help you create intentionally built, business-driven infrastructure. These value paths kickstart digital transformation without big organizational changes. Not to mention, each step funds and propels the next stage of the IT modernization process.
