More customers today than ever before are turning to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as the future state for their mainframe workloads. All market trends point to historic levels of interest and action from organizations who are realizing the cloud can match the performance, reliability, and security they are accustomed to on the mainframe. Mainframe customers are driven by three primary factors:

  • Enterprise agility and the need to do business in new ways and innovate at increasingly fast paces
