After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an
inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a
source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls
the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine
into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’
digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require
organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external
environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new
business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational

"IT teams across industries face growing pressure to deliver projects faster while reducing costs. All too often, dated legacy systems hinder IT’s ability to accomplish either of these objectives. Legacy systems can also slow the speed at which IT can deliver new projects to support the business. For these reasons, legacy modernization has emerged as a key strategic imperative. But where should organizations start? One large global bank provides a detailed blueprint for how large enterprises can do so.
Read this legacy modernization blueprint to learn:
-Best practices for modernizing legacy SOA web services
-How to think about re-architecting monolithic applications into microservices
-The role that APIs play in driving an effective legacy modernization strategy
-The bank’s legacy modernization strategy, and how they used Anypoint Platform"

Are you asking the right questions about your data center?
• Would you like your IT infrastructure to be faster and more agile?
• Would you like to improve your cost structure?
• Do you plan to adopt a hybrid IT infrastructure and become a service provider for your business?
To adapt to and compete in our ultra-connected, data-driven, and digital world, you need to effectively plan, build, integrate, and manage your facilities, platforms, and systems to efficiently align your infrastructure resources.
From the largest states and cities to the smallest municipalities, the public sector is undergoing large-scale modernization projects. To serve constituents now and in the years ahead, government agencies need a strategy to build the right networking infrastructure. The following six steps can help state and local governments build a solid foundation for modernization initiatives.
Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.
Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of “mature” applications consumes a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program.
Technology is quickly moving to the forefront of business priorities as organizations undertake
digital and IT transformation projects that enable strategic differentiation in a world where
users leverage applications and data in new ways. Organizations in all industries must better
align with changing customer preferences to avoid being disrupted by a new crop of nimble
competitors. Technology will increasingly determine how businesses define and distinguish
themselves in the market. IDC has noted that most organizations were not born digital
but instead have legacy business processes, applications, and infrastructure that require
modernization and automation. As a result, businesses must embark on an IT transformation
initiative to modernize and automate their legacy infrastructure to prime themselves to achieve
their digital business goals and initiatives.
The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right
stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure,
compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.
This IDC white paper considers the approaching end of extended support for Windows Server 2003 and explores the Windows migration options that are available to customers and the benefits associated with a modernization effort. It also evaluates the risks that customers face if they do not move off of Windows Server 2003 prior to the conclusion of extended support.
