Tech giant IBM has unveiled the IBM Z and Cloud Modernisation Centre, describing it as a “digital front door to training, resources, and ecosystem partners” to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption.
The centre promises to modernise clients’ applications, data, and processes through the value of open hybrid cloud architecture.
Clients will be given insights on maintaining their current IT estate whilst focusing on a strategy for their core applications and data running on IBM Z to prepare for hybrid cloud.
The process will include a detailed assessment of client’s business objectives, modernisation of existing apps and data to extend them to the cloud, and developing new cloud native apps.
IBM broke down the centre’s main zones as such:
Meredith Stowell, VP of the IBM Z Ecosystem, said: “Until now, global businesses that run on IBM Z have had limited choices for a one-stop shop for information and steps to take toward modernization. Coupled with confusing narratives by vendors in the marketplace and accounts of failed migrations, finding a resource IT leaders can turn to can be a challenge.
“The reality is that the future is hybrid, where IBM Z and cloud are better together. While lift and shift migration may seem like an attractive choice for modernisation, in many cases it can be a one-way street and lock-in to one public cloud which may have implications on cost, governance and security. IBM deeply understands the IBM Z environment, cloud ecosystem and the industries that rely on us, and we’ve brought together all the elements needed to help our clients adopt hybrid cloud in one place.”
