The Mainframe Migration Project – a cultural change as much as a technical one

Guest white paper by Markus Tschumper, Head of General IT Services, Swisscom

When embarking on a mainframe migration project, organizations often focus on the technical challenges likely to arise during the course of such a transformational move. However, with a competent migration partner and diligent discovery process, the technical hurdles are more easily overcome.

Organizations would be better-served focusing on the cultural change requirements of such a move. Focusing on the migration approach of your team, and key leading members of it, typically requires more management time but greatly increases your chance of success.
