80% of the World’s data is virtually useless.
Everybody knows business is under pressure to fundamentally reduce the total cost of IT ownership while delivering better service with increased agility; do more with less.
Everybody also knows that mainframes are legacy, expensive, slow to adapt, proprietary, siloed and complex. That they are yesterday’s answer unsuited to today’s problems.
What fewer people know is that 75% of the Fortune 1000 still rely on mainframes as the system of record, that the 35,000 systems out there hold 80% of all corporate data, are responsible for 60% of all transactions and hold data and applications assets valued at $5 Trillion. Migration away from the mainframe has proven so hard it is typically not an option.
Everybody knows that data, and therefore storage, is set to explode over the next 5 years and that proprietary mainframe storage is brutally expensive, forcing most customers to dump valuable data to tape early in the cycle, making it inaccessible for subsequent use or analysis. In order to save money on storage and other system resources, businesses are discarding their data, potentially their most valuable asset.
What almost nobody knows is that there is now a solution to these problems. A solution that will disrupt the total cost of ownership by enabling commodity storage to replace proprietary mainframe DASD at a fraction of the price. More importantly, it will allow workloads to be offloaded to commodity platforms and into the Cloud. By unlocking corporate data for access in near real-time, it is now possible to drive analytics against mainframe data. This innovation introduces a fundamental change to IT that will not only save mainframe owners millions, but which will revitalise the established corporations, giving them unprecedented and invaluable insight into their current and archived data.
