Mainframe Migration: 2-Day Assessment

Kyndryl Inc.

Work with Kyndryl to develop a roadmap to understand and design your mainframe migration strategy

This assessment evaluates where mainframe applications and data can be transformed by using the Microsoft Cloud, Azure and Power Platforms!

While many organizations continue to use IBM Z and IBM i systems, often referred to as ‘mainframes’, to manage their most critical applications and data, some customers are looking to move some, or all, of their mainframe assets to Microsoft Cloud, Azure and Power Platforms to unlock their digital transformation. By analysing their applications and data needs enterprises can ensure they exploit the power of the Microsoft Platforms and, as a result, enable the digital transformation needs of their business and enable faster time-to-market for new business capabilities. At Kyndryl, we leverage our extensive mainframe and Microsoft Platform expertise to help you unlock and harness the opportunities afforded by the Microsoft Platform to deliver digital business transformation at scale. Our mainframe, Microsoft, application and data advisory services are designed to transform and modernize your systems to get the ‘right workload on the right platform’ and enable reliable, modular, and scalable solutions that move your business forward.

Wherever you are in your journey with Microsoft Cloud, Azure and Microsoft Power Platforms, Kyndryl can work with you to address migration of your mainframe assets to Azure; modernizing the application developer experience; or integrating application and data management operations as part of your cloud strategy.
