Overall Satisfaction with IBM Z

My company uses IBM Z across the whole organization in the sense that most of our data is stored there. We have tons of applications that run on Z and we have developers who are trained on Z and support our business users.
  • The processing power and speed that Z provides is unparalleled.
  • The security of the data that resides on Z is unlike any other system.
  • For application developers, Z can sometimes be hard to understand, especially for younger users.
  • I'd like to see some type of built in support function for some of the products
  • I think the amount of work that we are able to process has had a positive impact on the company's ROI
We are currently looking into encryption, so it has had no impact yet.
We are not using cloud services, so no benefit for us.
I have not used any other products
For applications that are primarily on open systems, IBM Z would be a less appropriate recommendation, but to fellow systems programmers that are looking for solutions, Z would be the only recommendation in my book.
