It’s more than just a passing fad when nearly three-quarters of mainframe users are considering or in the midst of big data projects.
SHARE is pleased to announce the results of a survey conducted in partnership with IBM Systems Magazine on trends in big data analytics and System z.
The mainframe persists as a critical technology that’s remained uncannily vital over its first five decades—a truly extraordinary feat, former IBM executive Irving Wladawsky-Berger wrote Apri l 20 in the Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal.
Mainframes process 2.5 billion gigabytes of data globally daily—a capacity its developers could have scarcely comprehended in the platform’s early days 50 years ago.
I want to echo the importance of discussion and dialog between partners, like SHARE and IBM, to ensure that we all continue to derive value from the benefits delivered by this platform.
Reflections on the 50th birthday of the mainframe.
