“Why not let every client who sets foot in the door know that this agency has entered the future?” – Don Draper
If you ask most people what they think a mainframe is, most will likely get visions of black and white photos of antiquated computers housed in an IBM backroom. As the Vice President of Z Systems Marketing for IBM, it’s Deon Newman’s job to change that perception.
Believe it or not, all of us are connected to a mainframe multiple times each day. The stats might actually surprise you. For example:
- 80% of all corporate data resides or originates on mainframes.
- 55% of all enterprise applications need a mainframe to complete transactions.
- 30 billion business transactions are processed on mainframes every day.
