91% of CIO's say their new customer facing applications will touch the mainframe in some way, shape or form, and you've got to believe that close to 100% of those new customer facing applications will be mobile enabled, if not exclusively mobile. The reality is companies are now competing, and consumers are choosing, based on mobile accessibility and capabilities. Not only are companies now competing on the basis of mobile, but they're competing for the more profitable consumers, as in the case with mobile banking where consumers who use mobile banking are 32% more profitable, drive 19% more revenue and are 53% less likely to attrit.
Given the prominent role mobile has now taken in business strategy, and the clear linkage to driving profitable growth, can companies afford for their mobile applications to not be available, scalable, or secure? Hard to argue that the answer is anything other than "of course not!" In addition, if you consider that 80% of enterprise data either originates from or is stored on the mainframe, there's a significant amount of efficiencies to be gained by co-locating your mobile platform where your core enterprise data and transaction processing is done. And, to top it all off we've made it easy for your System z subsystems to interoperate with your mobile application platform right out of the box, whether it's WebSphere Application Server, CICS, MQ or IBM Integration Bus.
