Integrating Technology in the 20th Century

Modernización de Mainframe

Currently, mainframe modernization has become a necessity for companies looking to optimize their operations and keep them competitive.

In this context, the concept of the ‘7Rs of migration’ emerges and intertwines with that of ‘mainframe modernization’.

Benefits of Mainframe Modernization Performance Optimization:

Mainframe modernization allows harnessing cutting-edge technologies, enhancing application performance, and reducing downtimes.

  • Cost Reduction:

By eliminating reliance on possibly outdated and more expensive systems, companies can cut operational costs and allocate resources more efficiently.

  • Improved Security:

Modern technologies offer advanced security features, safeguarding data and business operations against cyber threats.

  • Scalability and Flexibility:

Modernized applications are highly scalable and flexible, enabling companies to quickly adapt to changes in business requirements and market demands.

The 7Rs of Migration: A Comprehensive Approach

The “7Rs of migration” (Rehost, Refactor, Rearchitect, Rebuild, Replace, Relocate, Retire) are the theoretical framework used to guide decisions during the systems migration process.

When analysing each “R,” always within the context of mainframe modernisation, a range of possibilities is opened that must be carefully considered in every organisation.

  • Rehost:

Rehosting applications, originally from the mainframe, into more modern environments such as the cloud, with the aim of improving accessibility and reducing infrastructure costs.

  • Refactor:

Refactoring applications to be modular and leverage contemporary technologies such as containers and microservices, facilitating scalability and maintenance.

  • Rearchitect:

Rebuilding the architecture of applications to integrate modern technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, aiming to enhance efficiency and business intelligence.

  • Rebuild:

Rebuilding applications from scratch, utilising modern frameworks and agile methodologies to ensure compatibility with future updates.

  • Replace:

Replacing mainframe applications with enterprise software solutions (ERP, CRM) that better align with current and future business needs.

  • Relocate:

Relocating applications to strategic locations, often in different geographies, to enhance latency and efficiency in accessing data.

  • Retire:

Thoroughly reviewing functioning modules to decide the retirement of obsolete applications and consolidating systems to reduce complexity and operational costs.
