On the surface, mainframe architecture seems relatively simple: A centrally located computer processes data through an input/output subsystem and stores its computations in memory. At the other end of the mainframe are printers and terminals that communicate with the mainframe through protocols. For all of its apparent simplicity, mainframe architecture can be extraordinarily complex. Mainframes process thousands of transactions per second and require an extensive infrastructure to house and maintain them. The hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of terminals (think of a ban... (more)

By John Dandeneau, VP of marketing and business development, Astadia During a recent webinar, Astadia legacy modernization expert Craig Marble and Abbey Road Software CEO Dave MacSwain discussed how companies can cost-effectively solve the ever-increasing demand for Unisys MAPPER/BIS conversion as they move to the cloud. Today, CIOs take a very different view of MAPPER. Most see it as an increasingly costly application that is keeping them from modernizing their legacy systems and realizing the promise of digital transformation and cloud computing. Typically, the only way availabl... (more)
