Why Legacy Modernization

Everything about mainframes is expensive – proprietary hardware, software, licenses and services/operations. Modernizing legacy systems to an open source big data platform can be an attractive option for organizations that require more agility and scalability without the price tag of proprietary systems.

When Migration is the Answer

  • When your organization is facing tight IT budgets and you are looking for low-cost options.
  • When your costs of data processing have skyrocketed and yet you are unable to add large volumes of raw data in the same cost.
  • When mainframe jobs are taking too long to process and your IT responsiveness is constrained.
  • When you have reached ceilings of scalability amidst growing data volumes and business needs.
  • When your business wants to stay competitive and more agile to changing market needs and expects quicker turnaround time.
  • When you are looking for business insights, value-adds and Advanced Analytics on your large volume of enterprise data at pace and in budget.
