Cover Story: Redefi ning the Economics of Mainframe SOA
BY GREGG WILLHOIT
Next-generation middleware exploits IBM System z specialty engines, redefi ning mainframe total cost of ownership and spurring expanded legacy participation in Service Oriented Architectures
Of all the wonders Service Oriented Architecture has wrought in the business world, one of the most valuable has been to unlock legacy data, applications, and processing resources for new and profi table use. Residing on mainframe platforms, such assets have been notoriously tricky and costly to change and adapt to new, typically web-centric, purposes. On the other hand, they often excel at the critical functions they have provided, typically for decades, and are highly reliable. Replacing them outright would be extremely costly as well as disruptive to operations that are com-monly mission-critical to an organization.
