Mainframe Cost Optimization
Modern businesses live in an age of financial austerity, cost containment and cutbacks. It is just a fact of life in many organizations that you need to be constantly vigilant for new ways to reduce costs. If your business relies on the mainframe -- and many of the biggest businesses do -- cost containment is of the utmost importance.
But how to cut costs? Many mainframe support groups are running thin in terms of people - so layoffs don't make a lot of sense. And the software that runs the business can't be cut. Management software supports the business systems, so cutting those may cost more than you save!
But there are things you can do. If you're interested in learning more about IBM MLC software costs, pricing/licensing, mainframe cost optimization and a solution to dynamically manage your system to reduce software costs be sure to take an hour out of your busy schedule and join me for a free webinar titled Mainframe Cost Optimization: Pricing, Licensing, the R4HA, and More! I'll be delivering this webinar on September 10, 2015 at 2pm EDT. During this session I'll discuss:
The new mainframe pricing options including zCAP, CMP and MWP
The disparate moving parts of sub-capacity pricing including the R4HA
Methods for controlling R4HA intelligently to reduce monthly software costs.
