PARTNER PERSPECTIVE

Four Ways to Evolve
Your Mainframe Strategy
for the Digital World
UNICOM Global
CORRY HONG
FOUNDER, PRESIDENT
AND CEO
Corry Hong founded
UNICOM Systems Inc.
in 1982. Today, the UNICOM
Global group consists of more
than 50 entities delivering
software and services to
enterprises worldwide.

The visionaries amongst the mainframe community, including many of
the world's largest organizations, are continually searching for a better
way to use the platform's capability to accelerate digital transformation
deployment and link traditional legacy mainframe mission-critical
applications and tools to new hybrid cloud computing environments.
As the owner of more than 50 corporate entities around the globe,
UNICOM Global has experienced many technical challenges and business concerns when conveying the unique benefits of the mainframe
strategy. This is especially important as UNICOM operates multiple
complex data centers housing IBM Z* mainframe, IBM Power Systems*,
HP and UNIX*/Linux* servers worldwide for different lines of business that require large real estate campuses. These include UNICOM
Technology Park I & II, and the iconic UNICOM Science and Technology
Park, one of the world's largest IT facilities, with over 2 million square
feet of office buildings on more than 1,100 acres, and with over 2
megawatts of self-generating renewable-energy to run the information
technology real estate ("IT RE") infrastructures to support customers in
over 170 countries.
The company's progressive integration IT RE strategy standardizes
business goals and aligns them with the specific architecture objectives
of our IT RE investments to enable rapid digital transformation. These
IT RE investments have yielded digital transformation innovation centers, artificial intelligence (AI) R&D labs, structured and unstructured data archiving
and warehouse repositories, and tiered data centers with disaster recovery
layers. To drive a successful vision-to-action plan to grow the new digital
business (separate from the company's traditional business), UNICOM has
deployed a disruptive integration business strategy, which has provided an
elegant model for designing, planning, implementing and governing an enterprise IT architecture to support the new "Infinite Business Matrix" model.
4 Pillars of Modernization
The mainframe is one of the most advanced technology platforms on
the planet, yet it often remains behind the curve when it comes to digital
transformation, new customer experience and efficiency savings. The key
to a successful digital transformation is to take a non-intrusive approach
that limits coding changes and reduces the burden on already overstretched mainframe developers. Any strategy should include the following four important pillars of modernization:
1. Mobile enablement. Modernizing mainframe access is a must, as traditional terminal emulator access ties users to one location and is incompatible with mobile working. Developing individual web and mobile interfaces
