Modernize Mainframe Workloads with AWS and OpenText

Learn how OpenText can help you modernize your mainframe, with equivalent or better performance and enterprise-level security, managed service on AWS.

Choose your Application Modernization Path with the Modernization Maturity Model

The Modernization Maturity Model is a practical framework meant to provide you a map from the initial business drivers behind the change requirements, through a technical strategy towards the appropriate tactical options.

Benefits of Mainframe Migration to AWS

Increase Speed, Lower Costs, and Reduce Risks

Replatform to a mainframe-compatible runtime or refactor applications to modern agile services. Whether you need a deeply integrated option, for a large deployment replatforming mainframe applications to AWS may be right for you. Or, for isolated, smaller deployments, rehosting may be best. Decide what is best for your organization.

Mainframe Modernization

Analyze mainframe migration readiness through application intelligence and analysis for migration teams and developers. Utilize development, build, and test tools for modernization projects to assess and identify gaps and determine what services to map and migrate, resulting in a straightforward migration process. Once implemented and tested, migrate and deploy mainframe workloads to a managed environment (including AWS).

Mainframe Access and Security in the Cloud

When migrating applications to the cloud, implement enterprise-level mainframe security, including strong authentication (with MFA), authorized access using the principle of least privilege, and zero-footprint host access. This ensures that all 3270 data remains in AWS and data privacy regulations are satisfied.
