How we solve your transformation problem.
Organizations want to unlock the value in their mainframe applications and data by moving to modern platforms.
But migration can be complex and risky, because relocating or changing one element can disrupt the whole system.
This means projects often grind to a halt or are abandoned.
With LzLabs SDM, you can migrate mainframe assets piece by piece, with minimal risk, and run them on a platform of your choice. Here, you can enhance them further to grow your business and drive innovation.
The safer, simpler way to innovate.
Take full advantage of your mainframe technology. With SDM, you can liberate your applications and data from mainframe siloes, run them on your platform of choice, and transform at a pace that meets your business demands.
Pick and choose which mainframe applications to migrate to new environments of your choice with no need to recompile, transcode, or rewrite. By thinking big and starting small you can unlock the value in your applications and lay the foundations for future transformation.
Other applications can continue running on the mainframe, minimizing business disruption and reducing the moving parts. This approach delivers the lowest-risk migration option on the market.
- Speed up your migration from mainframe to modern systems, in the cloud or on-premises.
- Reduce migration risk through binary rehosting and incremental migration.
- Enact meaningful change with zero disruption from day one.
Embrace the flexibility to transform and modernize faster and more efficiently. You can decide what to change in your applications rather than having to go back to square one.
Take back control of your transformation journey by using open-source tools now at your disposal to operate, monitor, and manage applications.
- Modernize whichever applications you want to change.
- Apply the power and agility of modern development tooling to maintain mainframe applications efficiently, in environments familiar to developers.
- Test and deploy new applications rapidly – improving time to market.
Leverage the freedom to deliver functionality at the pace your business needs and scale applications and workloads as required. Remain agile and pull ahead of your competition.
Using the SDM means your mainframe applications are now ready to drive business transformation and deliver on the needs of your customers.
- Leverage real-time data on demand to instantly respond to market demand.
- Transform applications to new languages and architectures, piece by piece.
