Reduce Costs, Increase Profits by Modernizing Your Mainframe Applications with Google Cloud

Mainframe powers much of global commerce and for decades—with its proprietary platform and legendary lock-in—was resistant to effective competition. Even years after most organizations began adopting public cloud, migrating off the mainframe remains too complex for many organizations to undertake.

Google Cloud brings a unique, automated approach to modernization enabling customers to go from mainframe to containers.

Gain operational efficiency

Escape capital-intensive mainframe refresh cycle with Google cloud. Move to a modern cloud-based model to reduce operational cost and improve maintainability.

Deliver agile services

You can also evolve software capabilities for faster and frequent updates. Use cloud-native technologies such as GKE alongside your on-premises workloads and accelerate time to market.

Mitigate risk and get access to talent

Also, eliminate the dependency on scarce skills. Gain access to top engineering talent and avoid vendor lock-in by modernizing to open software languages.

Watch this video where Travis Webb, Cloud Solutions Architect for Enterprise at Google Cloud, takes you through the challenges of modernizing mainframe and the key technical aspects of this solution that make it possible.
