Are you a mainframe executive or professional who wants to influence the next era of mainframe technology? On May 18th, BMC launched its 12th Annual Mainframe Research Survey. This survey is one of the largest in the industry, reporting on some of the most important mainframe usage trends.

This year, we hope to get more than 1,500 mainframe respondents to participate.

In this survey, we intend to build on last year’s research and focus on what makes a mainframe organization successful. We wish to understand a little more about the types of workloads they are running on their mainframes, what work is growing, and what is shrinking – as well as expand our investigation of newer workloads and the methods employed to manage them.

The survey is helping to promote the future health of the platform, which has been in existence now for over 50 years. The resulting report will influence investments, products (new and enhancements), hiring, functionality, and more.

The mainframe has been the backbone of critical business applications for decades – including bank ATMs, airline reservation systems, government, retail, and insurance applications. The mainframe continues to be critical to the ongoing transformation of digital business. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to its ongoing growth.

Take the survey now.
