Welcome to the mainframe renaissance!

mainframe renaissance

We’ve heard the mantra so often—‘Mainframes are dead’—and yet, despite the fact that most major corporations still rely on the mainframe, some people just don’t get it. The good news is that Compuware Corporation, the world’s leading mainframe-dedicated software company, leads a mainframe renaissance through product development and key acquisitions, like ThruPut Manager.

Dare to dream

A Mainframers Dream

A guest post by Denise P. Kalm – For 2017, I have a dream that more women will see the value of an IT career and that companies will leap to hire them. While there may be discrimination in some places, companies can’t hire more women if fewer are choosing this path. Better jobs with a diverse set of colleagues will attract more people to a field that is only growing bigger and more critical to business.

New year, new plan

new year's resolutions

We have such great intentions when the New Year starts. It’s so full of hope and promise. This year, we’ll take off the 10 pounds that just seems to sit there. We’ll clean out the garage so we can park our car inside. Maybe we’ll finally use that expensive gym membership regularly.

But these resolutions seem very difficult. And they take a lot of time. You know before you start that it’s more likely than not that you will fail. And that’s a horrible way to start the year. Why not make a resolution that you know you can achieve!

Quality matters, sometimes more than cost

quality matters

A recent study demonstrated that when you put in all the costs of mainframes, UNIX boxes and Wintel hardware (hardware, support, software, people, environmentals), mainframes were cheaper based on what they could produce. Mainframes work well and fast, aren’t subject to security breaches in the same way as any other hardware, and just a few people can manage thousands of applications on a single box.

Give yourself the Christmas gift you really want

Christmas gift of automation

A guest post by Denise P. Kalm – Not that we get a lot of ‘gifts’ at work, except the ‘opportunities’ to do a new, hard project with an impossible deadline. But a real gift would be software that would make 2017 a lot easier. Have you considered that sometimes, there is a little money left in the budget year? Use it or lose it! But what would you buy? How about some automation to free up your time in the coming year?
