BMC is preparing for our 2019 Mainframe survey and I would like to invite you to participate. This is the largest annual survey conducted on the Mainframe Management Market and provides valuable insight into the latest market trends. This is your chance to be heard in the marketplace about mainframe trends and concerns including:

  • Application Modernization
  • Data Recovery
  • Application Availability
  • Cost Reduction/Optimization
  • Data Privacy/Compliance/Security
  • Staffing and skills
  • And more!

We use this information to understand the market needs and trends so we can deliver the most innovative products and services and will be sharing results of this study later this Fall.

All qualified participants completing the survey will receive a BMC-branded Clutch+, a universal elastic phone strap for easy holding. It works as a wallet for credit cards and ID, and also can be used to provide a finger grip and a stand. The card wallet has built-in RFID technology which works with any contactless chip card to protect your information from thieves.
