May 11, 2021
Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services provider, has been named a leader across three quadrants in the 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Mainframe Services & Solutions U.S. report. Ensono was recognized for its deep knowledge around mainframe and modernization, flexibility in allowing clients to shift workloads across varied service platforms, ability to help clients integrate their mainframes with cloud infrastructures and partnerships with AWS and Microsoft Azure. Ensono is one of the few providers that can advise, transform and operate an enterprise’s entire IT estate across mainframe, private and public cloud.
The 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Mainframe Services & Solutions U.S. report evaluates the capabilities of 47 vendors and service providers across five areas. Ensono is a Leader in Mainframe Modernization, Mainframe as a Service and Mainframe Operations. It was also positioned as a contender for Mainframe Transformation Services.
According to the report, the mainframe modernization market has been accelerating in the last two years, driven by the need to increase business agility. COVID-19 only amplified the conversation by creating a sense of urgency and pressure on IT teams to reduce complexity and drive transformation. Unfortunately, many CIOs are faced with skills shortages and cost pressures. ISG’s report outlines five alternatives CIOs should consider when determining how the mainframe fits into their overall IT strategy, such as outsourcing mainframe operations, mainframe modernization and mainframe transformation with options to move all applications off the mainframe.
“We always seek to be an objective partner to our clients. An IT strategy is never a one-size fits all solution,” said Lisa Dyer, Vice President, Mainframe Line of Business, Ensono. “Being positioned as a leader across multiple areas is a testament to our dedication of helping clients realize the full art of the possible leveraging modern mainframe capabilities. The recognition showcases how we help our clients create an IT environment that will keep up with demands and ultimately meet their business objectives.”
“Ensono is a mainframe services specialist prepared to guide enterprises through their modernization journey toward hybrid cloud and data analytics,” said Pedro Luís Bicudo Maschio, Analyst and Lead Author, ISG.
Jan Erik Aase, Partner and Global Head of ISG Provider Lens™ at ISG, added, “Ensono has emerged as a leading mainframe services provider that absorbs legacy infrastructures to free clients to focus on innovation. They continue to improve and expand their portfolio and introduce innovative and flexible solutions that help clients continue on their transformation journeys.”
