Accelerate modernization with the new IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack

By | 1 minute read | January 18, 2022

As the new year begins, I have been reflecting on many client conversations from 2021 and there are some common themes emerging: acceleration of digital transformation, a continued shift to a hybrid cloud model, and how best to stay ahead with technology in a continually evolving landscape to provide a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Modernization of existing IT resources (applications, data, and infrastructure) is a critical consideration when clients are looking to operate across a hybrid ecosystem.  Many of these resources reside on IBM Z, so the conversation starts with an understanding of how IBM Z is an integral part of hybrid cloud, delivering additional value for a client’s business. We continue to develop powerful, highly efficient tools and solutions for modernizing Z resources to accelerate digital initiatives that can be employed without the need for high risk, high cost, and time-consuming application migrations.

IBM Z is all in on hybrid cloud with ongoing investments in open-source technologies and cloud software solutions as we deliver a consistent and integrated experience, enabling businesses to optimize deployment of new innovative services across a hybrid infrastructure.

Today I am pleased to announce another big step forward with the IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack. The IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack brings together capabilities from across our IBM Z software portfolio into a flexible and integrated platform to support z/OS-based application modernization, cloud native development, and standardized IT automation.

The IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack is designed to help clients:

  • Simplify access to applications and data through secured API creation and integration.
  • Leverage agile enterprise DevOps for cloud native development with open tools common to the industry and rapid application analytics.
  • Standardize IT automation and empower developers.
