The technology that powers organizations has undergone several major transitions since the birth of computing. In the 1960s, the mainframe was the dominant compute model, and it gave way to minicomputing about a decade later. In the 1990s, businesses eventually shifted to PC-based computing in the client/server era. This model was eventually supplanted by Internet computing as the dominant compute model. Today, the technology industry finds itself in the midst of the most significant transition ever: the shift to mobile computing.
Increasing infrastructure complexity has led to unprecedented growth in enterprise systems management data on all systems, including the mainframe and it is becoming more complex to manage SMF data. Download this Technology Brief to learn how to address the complexity of managing SMF data.

Increased regulatory scrutiny on the protection levels afforded sensitive information by those that transact and process it is causing enterprises to improve mainframe security strategies. This entails proactively investigating exposures and implementing appropriate policies, processes and technologies, including those for data z/OS tape encryption. Read this Technology Brief created by CA to learn how to identify exposure points and through the use of Tape Encryption.
Mission essential systems run on mainframes. With 71% of corporate data, it is no wonder that 63% of your peers are forecasting growth in utilization. What’s more is that the Mainframe now finds itself at an inflection point: going from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a source of revenue growth and innovation. In fact, according to IDC Connected Mainframe adopters are realizing 300% ROI, a 10 month payback and additional $200M in application revenue. The Infographic also covers the 2 main strategies of Connected Mainframe – Modernization and Integration and technology initiatives under each with customer quotes.
