Microsoft Azure: The right platform for mainframe modernization


Mainframes have turned into costly and effort-intensive investments that are difficult to transform for evolving business needs. In today’s digital age, they pose significant challenges to businesses, owing to high licensing costs, limited resources, and archaic user interfaces.

Driven by the need to optimize expenditure, unlock value from data, and enable mobile capabilities, many enterprises are modernizing mainframes to leverage new-age technologies and practices such as the cloud, development and operations (DevOps), Agile methodology, continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD), etc.

However, a one-size-fits-all approach cannot work!

Download this whitepaper, published jointly by Infosys and Microsoft, to understand the winning strategy for successful mainframe migration through use cases and examples.
