Venue: Butter NYC


CIOs and IT leaders are challenged with balancing two jobs: keeping IT running without disruption and with cost efficiencies; and modernizing IT to meet quickly emerging stakeholder needs. This is compounded by pressure to improve security, ensure compliance, eliminate risk and embrace the real-time information needs and self-service apps internal and external customers now expect.

The question is how? At every conference, in every periodical, during every stakeholder discussion, someone is telling you to move your infrastructure to the cloud. But you know it isn’t that easy. There are significant risks and costs, and the presumed benefits may be unrealistic.

Hybrid IT – including retaining a significant mainframe component – may not be as exciting as going full-on cloud, but it may be your best option, providing the most seamless, cost-effective way to meet both technology and business objectives.

In fact, according to a research study commissioned by Ensono and Wipro and conducted by Forrester Research, and based on data collected from IT leaders in 153 companies with hybrid IT, mainframes not only continue to play a critical role in organizations, they are also a powerful catalyst for digital transformation.

No wonder 77% of organizations are prioritizing mainframe modernization over the next 12 months.

Join Meet the Boss, industry peers and expert practitioners from the Ensono/Wipro partnership for one exclusive, interactive evening. We’ll share details of the study, discuss the range of possibilities your future mainframe strategy can take in the context of your business goals and technology strategy, and explore why mainframe modernization might be the secret sauce to your hybrid infrastructure transformation.
