terms of productivity, security and
resiliency," Hawkins says. "A lot of
clients run into problems achieving
these results because they don't
plan the migration appropriately."
Hawkins advises clients to
modernize their applications in
place and prepares them for the
new environment before they begin the migration.
"Many clients wait until the migration has taken place to modernize their applications," he explains.
Then you're introducing a lot of
new factors to account for when you

"You wouldn't do brain surgery
while you're up walking around.
You'd do it in a stable environment.
We always recommend people
modernize in place. If you've been
running an application on one

how it performs, you can tune it
and modernize it and get it ready to

In some ways, the built-in resiliency of IBM Z systems to keep
critical applications running can
actually lead to trouble. Many

"Anyone who goes through a migration wants
to see the ROI in terms of productivity, security
and resiliency. A lot of clients run into problems
achieving these results because they don't plan
the migration appropriately."
-Kelvin Hawkins, vice president for Client Advocacy
and Systems Assurance, IBM Systems
client issues related to lack of
planning can be traced back to
their level of trust in the platform
to function no matter what.
"Because of the famed IBM Z,
you don't need to think about
resiliency as much with this IBM
platform, at least at the architectural level, but it's still a requirement," he says. "Bad things can still
happen, and you need a multisite
disaster recovery plan in place."
In fact, when problems such as
power outages or natural disasters
occur, that's when people will need
to rely on IBM Systems the most.
The local and world economies
still need to function through these
unplanned natural incidences.
"You still need to buy generators, food or water, for example,"
Hawkins says. "The workloads that

we run are mission-critical applications. These are the ones that are
important to the world in terms of
transacting, banking, security and
insurance."
The IBM support team works
closely with clients to prepare
every aspect of a new environment
before a migration begins, from
capacity planning at the data center
to teams who can analyze the performance of an application in a new
environment.
With the right planning and
execution, clients can have full

ready to run their mission-critical
applications. The IBM Z platform
is the world's most secure transaction system and is supported by
the world's greatest advocacy and
assurance team.
