Opening Keynote Presented by Rocket Software

Monday, March 6  | 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. 

Modernization. Without Disruption.

A mainframe modernization initiative shouldn’t mean rebuilding from the ground up with all the inherent risk that that entails. In fact, as many industry leaders have shown, mainframe and cloud can co-exist, each having its own strengths. By ensuring the right workload on the right platform, organizations can have access to a robust, secure, and reliable IT infrastructure that keeps up with constantly evolving business demands. Join us for a review of essential infrastructure components which will enable you to modernize in place without disrupting your mission critical systems.


  • Phil Buckellew, President, Infrastructure Modernization Business Unit, Rocket Software
