Shifting COBOL Compute Workload: GFT and CloudFrame Partner to Reduce Mainframe Costs Now Available on YouTube

  Organizations that rely on mainframe COBOL applications for mission-critical internal and customer-facing applications are facing significant challenges. The IT professionals needed to maintain these applications are getting harder to find and more expensive to hire. Additionally, the execution cost of delivering long-standing results is increasing yearly. Historical increases for MLC have been around 5% per year, but in 2023, increases are reported to be 8% and, in some cases, as high as 15%. Cost

Measuring the Impact of Shifting COBOL Compute Now Available on YouTube

Shifting COBOL compute to less expensive platforms may be the best first step on the modernization journey. Identifying and moving the execution of your most expensive COBOL batch jobs provides an opportunity to reduce cost or free up funds in an existing IT budget. This modernization technique offers a low-risk, straightforward, and cost-effective approach that could lead to a reduction in your MSU usage spikes and MLC fees. If you move your COBOL compute to

Planning a Successful Shifting COBOL Compute Project Now Available on YouTube

As mainframe costs continue to rise, alternate compute and execution environments such as the zIIP, Linux, and the cloud are gaining more attention and credibility. Using cross-compile techniques to transform COBOL systems to Java creates opportunities for application owners and IT management to explore and prove the economics of hybrid environments that leverage less expensive execution. While IT organizations are getting comfortable with hybrid environments for enterprise applications, most still need to pull their mainframe

Live Transformation: Shifting COBOL Compute to Azure Now Available on YouTube

Mainframe costs continue to rise. Those increases have a tremendous impact on IT and business unit budgets. Not only are IT and business operations asked to do more with less, but adding insult to injury, the less actually may cost more.  As organizations seek opportunities to reduce costs, one important area of potential savings should not be overlooked: COBOL execution on mainframe GPP. If organizations could shift COBOL compute or execution off of the mainframe
