Digital Vision for Mainframe

Mainframes continue to be the foundation for business-critical applications

As part of the core IT foundation and alongside the hybrid cloud platform the mainframe provides a robust platform for critical (cloud) applications. It is Atos mission to support customers in the overall transformation and transition of complex legacy applications into cloud using agile and top modern methodologies without losing the reliability and security of mainframes. A successful transformation will keep organizations competitive and differentiated in their markets.
