INTEGRATION'S Importance
IBM z Systems clients must manage existing and emerging assets together
to get the most value

T

he challenge is perpetual: Enterprises must continually bridge the gap
between existing and emerging technologies. Organizations that depend
on the IBM z Systems* mainframe have a unique perspective on this dynamic.

Russ Teubner
is CEO and
co-founder of
HostBridge
Technology.

Their mainframe is vitally
important, housing applications
and data assets that have driven
business operations for decades,
and they feel constant pressure
to extract the highest possible
value from the platform. At the
same time, innovative technologies continually demand
adoption. Years ago UNIX* and
Windows* systems joined the IT
mix. Then it was the World Wide
Web. Today it's mobile, cloud,
big data and analytics. Tomorrow
it could be the Internet of Things.

Managing Existing
and Emerging
Analyst firm Gartner offers a
conceptual model illustrating how
business realities often drive the
existing-emerging dynamic. Gartner's Pace-Layered Application
Strategy (gartner.com/newsroom/
id/1923014) describes systems
of record, systems of differentiation and systems of innovation.
Virtually every enterprise relies
on one or more systems of record,
core enterprise platforms such as
the mainframe running critical

applications and databases.
Proven, trusted, often representing decades of investment,
systems of record are the enterprise backbone.
Additionally, organizations
look to newer technologies to
move ahead of competitors. Such
systems of differentiation might
include automation systems that
streamline customer service or
unified front-end applications providing employees with access to
systems enterprisewide for greater
productivity and efficiency. Many
