Mainframe platform

Is the Mainframe DEAD?

No, absolutely not! Based on estimates, about 100 billion lines of COBOL code is still active on the mainframe platform. About 71% of Fortune 500 companies still have a mainframe footprint and COBOL is used in almost every industry vertical including the largest banks, auto manufacturers, insurance companies, telecom companies, universities, government agencies and airlines to name a few.

Mainframes were introduced by IBM in the early 1960’s and soon became synonymous with IBM products as they quickly had a huge market-share. They have evolved from the mammoth machines they once were into very small, exponentially superior and faster machines, supporting a plethora of operating systems and applications. The mainframe operating system too has had its own revisions over the years and can now connect to other frameworks and technologies.

Advantages and Disadvantages

The key benefits of the mainframe are the following:

  • Very effective and efficient in large scale transactional processing
  • Time sharing option effective in supporting thousands of concurrent users and applications
  • Supports large bandwidth communication
  • Adhere to IBM’s “RAS” motto of Reliability, Availability, Serviceability and provide a super secure platform

Now that we listed the main benefits let’s take a look at some disadvantages:

  • Cost of ownership – Only big corporations can afford to keep up with hardware and licensing costs to keep the applications running on the mainframe platform
  • Aging resource pool – Most mainframe programmers are either nearing retirement or are already retired. In addition, no formal training is available or is in demand as Generation X and Millennial software programmers seem to be inclined to learn cutting edge technologies over mainframe technologies
