According to IBM’s CIO Greg Lotko, IBM’s innovative approach towards its mainframes has led to 25 years of remarkable achievements in the area. The latest IBM mainframe, the zEnterprise System, reflected the company’s approach to innovation at all levels. The System z has the fastest chip in the industry and incorporates hybrid computing capacity and IBM middleware optimisation.
IBM’s new mainframe system, the zEnterprise BC12, has been released. The entry-level mainframe starts at $75,000 and is designed for analytics, cloud, and mobile use. IBM said that the system is suitable for any business, large or small.
IBM has received many queries from mainframe professionals about its vision for modernising the mainframe user experience. According to Kathryn Briscoe and Iris Rivera from IBM, the company has already developed a few ease-of-use solutions for mainframes. These were introduced after extensive research and working closely with IBM users.
