GC Mainframe strategy
This strategy provides an overview of the status of mainframe as a technology across other sectors of industry and then looks at their usage within the GC. It will present the risks associated with operating mainframes that the GC will need to continue manage. The most pernicious of those is a workforce with mainframe skills. The strategy will outline questions each departments should be asking themselves as they consider the future of their mainframe applications. Key to this is the question of fit for purpose. Given the strategic direction of your organization, does your mainframe applications continue to support that course? If not, what migration options exist? Finally, recommendations have been made to improve stewardship of mainframes and the applications they host.
