The LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe (SDM) is able to run mainframe applications, without recompilation or data changes, in containers on commodity hardware or in the Cloud.
SDM enables developers to spin up multiple parallel test environments for mainframe applications on their workstations. Your business can now evolve these applications in an agile and iterative way, progressively modernizing with minimal risk. Your mainframe applications and data continue to be at the core of your business, and you're well equipped for the future.
Didier Durand, Chief Product Officer, Jan Jaeger, Chief Software Architect and Dale Vecchio, Chief Marketing Officer, LzLabs, discuss how, using a Software Defined Mainframe, organizations will be able to evolve from existing workload architectures to container and cloud-based models, and finally microservices.
Mark Cresswell, CEO of LzLabs, looks behind the headline issues of mainframe application modernizaton to get to the core of why organizations are finding it difficult to move forward with them and why so many companies are looking to move them to other platforms. From speaking to customers, outsourcers and systems integrators, he hit upon four key reasons.
Dale Vecchio, Chief Evangelist at LzLabs discusses why mainframe applications are often resistant to agility. The need for agile development is leading organizations to consider a new future for their mainframe applications. What else is driving this trend, and what is the first step IT leaders should take to transform applications into new languages and implementations?
