  2. 2. The “Big Iron” is witnessing Re-surgenceMainframe Becomes Mainstream ““ It’s challenging to get your hands dirty on the ‘Big Iron’. Yet, Mainframes today are the most preferred data servers for even the most technology- savvy organizations. Mainframe now runs about80 percent of the worlds mission- Interestingly, the amount of work Mainframes are doing around the world is critical data & applications increasing. That’s right! Though the number of Mainframes being used has dropped - Aberdeen Research over the past years, but the amount of processing they do is increasing. Most of the major Banks, Insurance companies and large Government departments in more Industrialized countries have Mainframes supporting their businesses. Deal withThe Mainframe Maze Fixed Cost of Mainframe Mainframe costs are higher when it is fixed.Some Key Challenges The cost varies in a step function & is not truly variable with changing business needs. Shortage of Skills The ‘graying’ of Mainframe support skills. Quality people with Mainframe skills becoming harder to find. Training of these resources is expensive and becoming unaffordable. Inadequate quality of Innovation services Fragmented Processes & un- Keeping up with the latest optimized Tooling & Utility Mainframe technologies & portfolio. constant innovation is a Increased regulatory pressures nightmare. and compliance penalties requires fool-proof audit procedures. Higher TCO High cost of ownership - Mainframe processors are too expensive. Mainframe hardware & software ownership represents 70% of the overall TCO. Sub 2000 MIPS are costlier to operate.
