Overall Satisfaction with IBM Z

Support the mainframe networks (tcpip & SNA) for our company. User of TSO and infrastructure tools.

Pros

  • Large database management
  • Legacy support
  • Large scale API access to data

Cons

  • Modernizing the unix stack
  • Being more quick to market on application trends such as containers
  • Availability/Reliability
  • Performance
  • Cost Effectiveness
  • Integration of web services for online financial services.
  • Low TCO for data management.
No real competitor for large scale mainframe. iSeries can be used for mid-sized solutions.
