Dr. Howard Rubin, CEO and Founder of research firm Rubin Worldwide, has found a couple of messages in the years of data he’s collected from companies around the world, in virtually every industry:
1. Choosing the right computing platform can result in powerful returns;
2. In cases where the mainframe is the right platform, those returns are particularly massive, and measurable not just in technical terms (like cost per server or MIP), but in raw business terms, such as cost per transaction in banking, cost per bed in healthcare, etc.
Watch Rubin make his case in the video below (if the video doesn't appear below, you can find it here). Then read a brief report (PDF) that details the TCO benefits for multiple industries (and makes clear the Ferrari reference).
