The complexity of existing business applications and the environment that has grown up around them can limit the potential for innovation. Taking mainframe applications forward and making the mainframe work harder requires a different type of approach to remove a number of constraints. Mainframe modernization is not one of the current “buzz” terms in the government technology sector, but it is fundamental to enacting many of the current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates. Without updating mainframe-based legacy systems, most agencies cannot consolidate their data center environments, move to the cloud to share services or enable the mobile workforce. Mainframes are the foundation for many missions across government, and should remain a topic
of discussion as agencies work to innovate and reduce costs in IT.
