These virtualized computing services revolutionized
the infrastructure of business,
delivering flexible pricing
models, the ability to scale on demand and accelerated time
to market.

A Gap in the Market
Whereas we are fully immersed
in the revolution of the cloud,
the benefits of cloud computing
have been limited to distributed computing and have eluded
mainframe environments and
applications. This gap in the market-the ability to dynamically use
cloud resources to execute z/OS*
workloads-presents a tremendous opportunity in mainframe
computing.
The mainframe remains
the most secure, reliable and
available platform in the market today, trusted to run
the most sensitive,
mission-critical and
regulated workloads and data
in the world.
Yet mainframe
users con& 'ÉÃ&!î&Ã
the perception that the
mainframe
is expensive,
 ¯É0ÆÉQÃ!'&ÈÄ&ed and destined for
extinction.
Without some of the
analogous cloud technologies of
the distributed world, mainframe
leaders are faced with the same
old choices for cost reduction and
!"É$Ä&! ÄÃÉ®ÇÉ ÇÉ%NÃ3!ÉÃ
hire employees or consultants to
manually move data and/or workloads off the mainframe, migrate
to a managed service, outsource or
attempt to replatform applications.
This creates substantial challenges
in time, cost and risk to complete.
If it's completed, it can prove challenging to retain or regain control
of systems, data, workloads and

costs, not to mention the comparative compromises to security
and availability.

While today an entire LPAR,

the cloud, I believe a new IBM Z
Workload as a Service (ZWaaS)

for program execution would be
dispatched along with the unit of
work, and the results returned to
the source environment.
For large mainframe users, the
opportunity to easily shift workloads around to various clouds to

For smaller mainframe users,
envision mainframe applications
executing in the cloud, still controlled by the user but managed by
a service provider-just like businesses use AWS or other cloud providers today to remove infrastructure in distributed environments.

A Revolution in the Making
ZWaaS would present a compelling
opportunity for service providers to bring a variety of clouds
to market, and for ISVs to create

mainframe environments.
Given today's high-volume,
transaction-based world, with
cloud and other innovations, the
mainframe will continue to serve
as the most secure, reliable and
available platform in the industry.
It's time for the concepts of cloud
computing in the distributed world
to come full circle, back to where
they originated so many years
ago-and revolutionize the mainframe industry.
