Mainframe Transformation with Azure Assessment: 1-Wk Assessment

Kyndryl Inc.

A collaborative assessment to work with Kyndryl to define a roadmap to understand and design your mainframe transformation strategy

Transform, modernize and integrate your mainframe applications and data, whether they are on IBM Z or IBM i platforms, by using Microsoft Cloud based services.

This assessment evaluates options for mainframe application and data transformation by using Microsoft Cloud based services.

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 either integrate these platforms or move some, or all, of their mainframe assets to Microsoft Cloud, Azure and Microsoft Power Platforms to unlock their digital transformation. By analyzing their applications and data to determine the best fit platform, enterprises can ensure they exploit the power of Microsoft Cloud to deliver digital transformation and faster time-to-market for new business capabilities. At Kyndryl, we leverage our extensive mainframe and Microsoft Cloud expertise to help you unlock and harness the opportunities afforded by the Microsoft Cloud to deliver that transformation at scale. Our infrastructure, application and data advisory services for mainframe and Microsoft Cloud 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 on your journey with Microsoft Cloud, Kyndryl can work with you to address transformation of your mainframe environment; modernize the application developer experience; and integrate application and data management operations as part of your cloud strategy.
