Are You Wasting Mainframe Money?

There’s a saying that we’ve all heard in our lives, “Waste not, want not.” Simply put: if you use a commodity or resource carefully and without extravagance, you will never be in need.

Can the same be said for your IT systems portfolio?

We hear from customers all the time that they’re not getting enough return on investment. Just this past week at the SHARE conference in San Jose, CA, we heard from conference goers that they were interested in reducing costs and looking for a better end user experience within their IT environment.

As a company, we aim to provide peace of mind to all of our customers and this means helping them get a big return on investment for their IT environment. Our customers who have rationalized their software have seen up to 50% cost savings in the first year. Responsible rationalization can be the answer for you to simplify management and accelerate the returns on your software and hardware investments.

So what does rationalization mean?

Imagine cutting your mainframe infrastructure software and services costs by a percentage of your choosing. With the ASG Rationalization program, you can reduce your annual and long term costs, simplify your software administration by reducing the number of vendors and co-term software licenses. We will examine your current management systems to ensure you’re using the most efficient tools at the most effective cost.

With our rationalization calculator, you can reduce their mainframe infrastructure cost by choosing a percentage, a product area (Performance management, Applications management or Operations management), a target domain to compare to (ex: DB2, CICS, MQ) and then fill in the cost of doing business with a different provider.

When you decide to rationalize your software, you can expect significant reductions in the complexity of your IT infrastructure. The positive impact that rationalization can have on your business and how to reduce mainframe sprawl are more benefits to rationalizing your portfolio.

 You can use our Rationalization calculator to try for yourself or contact us to help you get started.
