Why Source Code Dependency is a Challenge for Mainframe Workload Rehosting |  Read the free White paper

Reducing reliance on source code enables migration to Linux, x86 and the cloud

Mark Cresswell, CEO of LzLabs, discusses how the traditional approach to mainframe re-hosting - involving recompilation of source code - is fraught with issues that often render projects costly and unsuccessful. He  summarises the benefits of an alternative, software-defined approach that enables migration of mainframe workload and data to open systems, without recompilation.

The key topics covered include: 

  • Unravelling the 'Gordian Knot' of application interdependencies 
  • Encoding issues faced when moving from mainframe to x86
  • Overcoming the challenge of data processing when migrating from mainframe database to PostgreSQL
