It is the essence of our world. In fact, a recent report from Osterman Research shows that worldwide spending on computers will reach $2.91 billion by 2025, and 70% of organizations that operate mainframes intend to keep them. At the same time, as Gartner points out, the cloud continues to grow, with cloud spending expected to grow from $1.3 trillion in 2022 to $1.8 trillion in 2025. The need to cut the mainframe and cloud into the organization.
Many organizations will find that the best approach is a hybrid, combining cloud and non-cloud approaches. As the organization moves to the cloud, the business-critical terminal emulator needs modernization. Moving to the cloud has these advantages;
— Total cost of ownership (TCO): Deploying Zephyr’s terminal emulator cloud footprint reduces TCO by enabling a central point of management and deployment that reduces desktop management.
— Increased flexibility: Terminal emulation from the cloud allows users to access the host anytime, anywhere.
— Increased scalability: Using containers and orchestrations, you can easily scale terminal emulation, allowing it to be deployed to hundreds of thousands, or even more, users.
— Regulatory compliance and enhanced security: It is key that your terminal emulation solution includes Identity and Access Management (IAM) integration, so that only authorized users can connect to the mainframe and deny all access.
–Centralized control and management: Quickly deploys secure browser-based sessions with keyboard, hotkeys, and macros support.
The organization can have a mainframe on premises, while it is accessed from the cloud. For example, a global financial organization is planning to implement Host Access for the Cloud, a secure, zero-trace, web-based terminal emulator that allows users secure access to on-premises mainframe applications. With terminal deployment in the cloud, productivity has increased, security has increased, and centralized management has lowered your TCO. This is an example of the benefits of moving to the cloud.
to find innovation
To ensure success now and in the future, it is necessary to increase the return on investment of existing programs, innovating and adopting new technologies. Challenges that are said to be competitive in the Hybrid IT world include various avenues: application management, IT operations management (ITSM), application modernization, and intelligent cybersecurity.
