Moving to the cloud seems to be the best option, new report claims.
Businesses that rely on critical mainframe IT systems are faced with a “skills crisis”, a new report by LzLabs and Vanson Bourne suggests. The report claims that all organisations (99 per cent) consider their mainframe applications critical to business operations, yet more than nine in ten (93 per cent) worry about the impending skills crisis.
This skills crisis is most present in two ways: supporting mainframe applications (49 per cent) and operating the platform itself (48 per cent). For most businesses, not having properly skilled workers to handle their mainframe could potentially put them out of business.
