Innovative digital co-creation with mainframes


Published on

In this session, we will discuss the business challenges around digitalization and the implications for IT infrastructure and services. Key topics include decisions around on- or off-premise, DIY or buy, continuance of mission critical core applications (typically based on own developed applications), integration of existing teams and other related aspects. The need for a “Digital Transformation Platform” with tailor-made modifications and building blocks will be underlined by typical usage scenarios that demonstrate the indisputable value of mainframes – today and in future.
