The mainframe offers unique value in today's enterprise computing environments, where growing workloads, constrained resources, regulatory imperatives and corporate "green" mandates are intensifying the pressure on IT organizations to do more with less. However, as the industry's most skilled and experienced mainframe professionals approach retirement, organizations are facing an unacceptable choice: either scale back on their use of the mainframe - thereby forfeiting its uniquely valuable capabilities - or spend inordinate amounts of time and effort building staff to support their growing mainframe environments.

CA's Mainframe 2.0 initiative eliminates this IT management conundrum by simplifying mainframe ownership - helping you effectively handle your growing budget, staffing and technology challenges, so that you can realize the unique business benefits that only the mainframe can offer. The Mainframe 2.0 initiative delivers significant across-the-board enhancements to the acquisition, deployment, usability and integration of CA's leading mainframe management solutions, along with new turnkey mainframe management services. Together, these solutions and services will enable you to more effectively leverage your investment in the IBM mainframe platform, so that you can readily satisfy growing business computing demands - despite limited budgets, a graying mainframe workforce and pressure to control energy consumption.

By taking advantage of the Mainframe 2.0 initiative, you will be able to simplify mainframe ownership and optimization by:
  • Empowering less-experienced support staff to maintain, optimize, secure and govern your mainframe environment
  • Providing your staff with a uniform browser-based interface for all mainframe management functions
  • Leveraging the automation and operational intelligence built into CA solutions to insulate your staff from the underlying complexities of the IBM z/OS platform
  • Reducing complexity through the consistent conformance of CA's solutions to IBM's software installation standards
  • Providing turnkey services that address gaps in internal skills and control staffing costs
