Bringing IT and the Mainframe to Life

The BMC Beat recently caught up with Jonathan Adams, vice president and general manager of Z Solutions & Select Technologies at BMC.

Jonathan discusses highlights from a worldwide survey of 1,200 IT leaders which found that despite the mainframe’s perception as a legacy platform, customers who report that one of their top priorities is cloud, big data or mobility indicate that their mainframes are increasingly used as a full-fledged participant in digital business efforts. In fact, 91 percent of all respondents consider the mainframe to be a long-term strategic platform, with 61 percent expecting growth in their environment in the next two years.

I hope you will take a look at the video below to see Jonathan discuss why the mainframe is here to stay and how BMC is working to bring IT and the mainframe to life.
