Many organizations operate and rely on complex IT-infrastructure with many centralized systems. Often perceived as sunset technology, mainframe remains a cornerstone for business-critical applications in an ever-changing web and mobile world and serves many different processes in parallel.
Many mainframe applications are written in COBOL. Not only are existing COBOL applications maintained and enhanced but new developments are also built whenever application stability and scalability are a must.
In the current IT environment, mainframe is facing rising pressure from business and finance to be more agile and cost-efficient. In this modernization journey, performance is critical for meeting the demand of increased web and mobile app traffic as well as reducing operation and development costs.
