Hey Dude, don’t make them mad.
Take an invoice and make it smaller.
Remember to optimize software costs,
Then you can reduce your mainframe budget.
You may have been told as recently as yesterday that you need to cut mainframe costs. Before you can reduce costs, it would help if you knew exactly how money was being spent. Chances are, the bulk of your software spending is for monthly licenses charges (MLC) for running z/OS, DB2, CICS, and other IBM products. It’s difficult to understand how the charges are calculated, and even more challenging to determine how to reduce them. We want to hold your hand and show you how to manage MLC so you can get back to focusing on technology instead of costs.-David Schipper-BMC Software
