Mainframe Modernization Conundrum

In the fast-paced realm of technological advancements, businesses often face the challenge of reconciling costly legacy systems–particularly mainframes–with the demands of modern, agile operations.

Wanting to approach mainframe economics from a different angle, Adaptigent co-hosted a webinar with Planet Mainframe on how no-code solutions can reduce business costs.

Mainframe and Business Costs

Chase Peery, Adaptigent software engineer, kicked off the webinar. While much has been written and said about IT hardware and security costs, less attention is paid to equally important business costs. He specifically highlighted which costs the webinar would cover:

  • The costs of compliance
  • The costs of a merger
  • The costs of providing high-quality customer service
  • The costs of customer loyalty and reputation management
  • The cost of building consumer-based tools

Perry shared examples from banking and airline customers who connected their mainframes to other systems using Fabric – without any coding. He then elaborated on how these solutions enable swift and efficient modernization by offering user-friendly interfaces, allowing even non-technical employees to create and deploy APIs, thereby accelerating the pace of transformation.

Don Spoerke, Adaptigent product evangelist, continued the webinar, showcasing successful case studies from insurance, luxury car production and government services. One customer implemented Fabric in mere days!

In each example, when the organizations implemented Adaptigent’s no-code solution with their mainframes, they:

  • Saved time
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved operational efficiency
  • Enhance agility

Perhaps that’s not surprising considering that Adaptigent has zero failed client implementations, and more than 95% of Fabric clients renew their services year-after-year.

No Code and Questions for Mainframe Modernization

The webinar used real-life examples to showcase the potential of no-code solutions as a pivotal element in the landscape of mainframe modernization. No-code platforms, like Adaptigent’s Adaptive Integration Fabric (Fabric), empower businesses to revamp and streamline their systems without the necessity for extensive coding knowledge or reliance on scarce, specialized talent.

During the live question-and-answer portion, Peery and Spoerke fielded questions about what is Fabric, which platforms Fabric can run on, and does Adaptigent support Linux Z, CICS and IMS.

Key takeaway: organizations can harness the power of APIs without the need for coding – while achieving mainframe modernization and cost-saving goals.
