Don’t let legacy tech hold you back. Modernize your IT.
Change is inevitable and companies need to adapt to change. However, legacy infrastructure and applications can limit enterprises from responding quickly to change or making the most of new business opportunities. Modernizing technology to propel purpose-driven growth and transformation is an imperative.
Migration and modernization of mainframe to cloud, for instance, enables enterprises to achieve up to 70% savings in IT infrastructure spend. What’s more, with cloud-based DevOps and on-demand resources and managed services from cloud providers, you can gain the agility required for success.
TCS’ solution for mainframe modernization to AWS revolves around the 6Rs of migration—Rehost, Refactor, Rewrite, Replace, Retain and Retire. We also leverage the TCS MasterCraftTM automation framework to reduce the cost and time involved in transformation.
