Ensono Expands Mainframe Modernization Capabilities Within Hybrid IT Services Portfolio

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

The solution propels transformation of legacy technology, reducing barriers to innovation and enabling readiness to meet tomorrow’s demands

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., July 14, 2020 -- Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services provider, today launched the availability of Mainframe Modernization, a solution that modernizes application and platform capabilities, and integrates those capabilities into broader IT strategies. Mainframe Modernization helps clients improve agility, reduce technical debt and skills risks, and generate new revenue.

Research says that 83% of IT leaders cite infrastructure as the main challenge to meeting business demands. This creates urgency and pressure on IT teams to reduce complexity in IT environments and accelerate their pace of digital transformation. Mainframe Modernization enables IT teams to meet and exceed financial, operational and functional business demands.

Ensono’s Mainframe Modernization creates an intentionally built framework that considers the full art of possible in modernizing the workloads and the platforms they run on. It’s more than just migrating applications to a cloud environment – it’s transforming legacy code and data to run anywhere, enabling and integrating modern platform capabilities, and taking out cost and risk. The solution delivers new capabilities for clients with mission-critical mainframe environments including:  

  • Cloud native functions to enhance mainframe workloads
  • Targeted application assessments and migrations give the option to rehost, replace, refactor, or retire apps that have lived on the mainframe but are better suited for cloud
  • Data connectivity brings together business-critical data wherever it is, in real time, without the cost and risk in moving it
  • API connectivity provides frictionless and secure integration between the mainframe and non-mainframe capabilities
  • Ensono® Flex™ enables clients to move across platforms with no penalty

“Over the past years, mainframe modernization was just starting to become part of the strategic transformation conversation,” said Lisa Dyer, vice president of product management at Ensono. “The conversation has accelerated to a key IT objective because clients expect effortless, quick digital experiences knowing that data powers innovation and that apps of engagement connecting to the mainframe aren't built for today's demands. This solution is more than just migrating to the cloud. It’s about understanding the business outcomes our clients need, uncovering what’s impeding them today, and providing application and data-centric value paths to achieve those business outcomes on the right platforms. Ensono’s brand promise is to be the objective and independent partner to our clients in that journey.”
