BMC Mainframe Research

Trends and insights for
2015 and beyond

This year more than 1,200 professionals from every industry around the world participated in our 10th annual mainframe survey, telling us about the mainframe in their organizations and sharing their outlook on the platform. Our research confirmed that today’s demands for highly available and secure access to apps and data are powering the mainframe's strong long-term outlook.

Availability and security, combined with the ability to process transactions at the speed and scale of mobile, are the drivers most often cited in projecting mainframe capacity growth. This information is especially timely as the digital economy continues to expand and is increasingly run on transactions.

"The IBM z13™ can process up to 2.5 billion transactions per day -- that's the equivalent of 100 Cyber Mondays. Facing this boom in data and transaction growth, digital businesses are looking to transform their IT infrastructures to handle the load with maximum security, availability, and performance. BMC’s annual report confirms IBM z Systems® clients are leveraging the platform as a centerpiece of their digital transformation, and we recognize BMC as a valued business partner.”

Mark Anzani, Vice President z Systems Strategy, Resilience and Ecosystems

These latest research findings once again demonstrate that mainframe owners have big long-term plans for the platform and that they require significant assistance in bringing fast and agile DevOps best practices to bear on their mainframe-resident applications. BMC and Compuware are working together to meet these ongoing mainframe ownership needs with solutions that empower customers to keep getting maximum business value from their investments in mainframe hardware, mainframe applications, and mainframe data.”
