TmaxSoft to Be a Sponsor at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 in Orlando

Thursday, October 8th Presentation to focus on Mainframe Modernization for the Cloud

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2015) - TmaxSoft, a multinational software innovator focused on infrastructure and data, today announced it will be a sponsor of Gartner's 2015 Symposium and ITxpo being held in Orlando, Florida October 4-8.

In addition to being a sponsor, TmaxSoft's VP of Global Marketing, Ed Franklin, will give a presentation Thursday, October 8 at 12:00 p.m., entitled "Renovating the Mainframe Core: Modernizing Legacy Applications for the Cloud."

With 70% of the world's data being controlled by COBOL and 46% of IT organizations surveyed showing high interest in legacy modernization, the long-term outlook for native mainframe applications in today's multitier, cloud-based world is uncertain. In his presentation, Ed Franklin shares some of the key technical and economic drivers for modernization along with the alternatives, including retaining, rewriting, and rehosting.

Additional decision factors include the ongoing decrease of x86 hardware prices and the ongoing decrease of the COBOL talent pool. This talk explores these topics and other techniques to mitigate project risk, and includes anecdotal experiences of actual mainframe modernization projects.
