For the 14th consecutive year, BMC conducted the largest mainframe survey of its kind, with more than 1,100 executives and technical professionals sharing their perspectives and experiences with the platform. The results of the 2019 BMC Mainframe Survey continue to show optimistic trends for the mainframe and its role in today’s emerging and established businesses.
Respondents expressed the highest level of confidence seen in the last six years and say they are:
- Modernizing mainframe platforms, people, and perceptions
- Adapting to changes in mainframe workforce demographics
- Making key changes to ensure continued mainframe success
Millennials in particular see the opportunity to integrate the platform with the rest of the enterprise and are asking questions like, “Why don’t we…?” while the older generation still views the mainframe as an isolated specialized system.
