UBM Tech 2 SSS Businesses today operate in the application economy. Great applications are essential for winning customers, operating efficiently, and staying competitive in markets that seem to be in a state of constant disruption. And compelling functionality isn't the only thing that makes applications great. Applications also have to perform well, run 24/7, scale cost-efficiently, and be highly secure. At most large enterprises, great applications have to run across multiple platforms. A smartphone app, for example, may invoke application logic and data that reside on virtual Windows and Linux servers, network-attached storage, multiple XaaS clouds, and IBM z Systems. So business success requires technical excellence across all platforms—from mobile to the mainframe. This e-book provides a synopsis of four insightful discussions about how IT can make the most of its mainframe investments in the context of this increasingly transplatform application delivery environment.
