Flexing into the future with mainframe reinvention

Reinvention is never easy, but when it comes to reinventing the systems that keep your business running, the stakes are even higher. Mainframes were once the killer technology that gave the biggest of the big companies an edge over the competition. Now they are a major hindrance to modernizing business applications and must be transformed.

Cloud enthusiasts and business leaders from around the world are gathering in Las Vegas next week for one of the most prominent industry events: AWS re:Invent. Meanwhile we at Atos, are preparing to demonstrate how large enterprises can reinvent the mainframe in the cloud, limit disruption and deliver positive ROI and business agility.

Remixing the mainframe

An AWS partner since 2013, Atos has accelerated mainframe transformations for some of the most complex businesses on the planet.

As a platinum sponsor of re:Invent , we will present a session entitled A pragmatic guide to modernizing your mainframe on Monday, November 29.

Atos CTO and Vice President of Cloud Transformation, Barry Wordell and Global Head of our Cloud Portfolio Brad Foster, will share their insights on the technology, tools and expertise needed to successfully complete projects of this scale.

As mainframe modernization becomes even more prevalent in today’s fast-moving digital environment, the session will dive deep into how to overcome some of the challenges enterprises face when trying to exit the mainframe. With pressure to retire mainframes increasing due to factors like talent obstacles, soaring maintenance costs and the need for increased agility, business leaders must move forward with mainframe modernization projects.

The good news is that if done correctly, the benefits far outweigh the risk. To get a preview of what’s in store for this session, download our latest mainframe modernization whitepaper.

From mainframe modernization to machine learning (ML) and cloud security, Atos enables large enterprises to reinvent the mainframe in the cloud — with low risk and big rewards.

Enabling next-generation solutions

Exiting mainframes is an essential step in enabling the kind of new digital applications that can truly transform your business, including AI and machine learning (ML), robust cloud security and data driven insights.

If hands-on demos are more your style, make plans to visit Atos in booth #269 at re:Invent and get a live demo of these next-generation digital applications in action from one of our experts.
