Mainframe Modernization Survey 2021

Funkschau: Mainframe Modernisation

Funkschau, one of Germany’s leading IT verticals, invited LzLabs Thilo Rockmann to participate in a feature story on mainframe modernisation best practices.

Funkschau: “Let’s take a look at the practice – what can you report here?”

Thilo Rockmann, LzLabs: “LzLabs helped the Italian bank BPER to reduce its dependency on the mainframe. Here, LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® (SDM) is utilised in two different ways. On the one hand, applications are migrated to SDM and, on the other hand, SDM is used for testing.

The former is primarily used to reduce workload on the mainframe, with the option of running the applications on both the SDM and the mainframe. The latter serves in particular to offer far more extensive testing options for application development, and thus reduce the modernisation roll-out time.”
