Today’s business leaders are capitalizing on the huge opportunity that mobile devices enable for closer customer interaction. Why? Because they know the reality of how staggering mobile growth is:

More than anything, this mobile explosion is an opportunity for businesses to transform the way they engage with their customers, but organizations need to act fast! Today’s mobile-centric world means you must quickly build, test, develop and deliver new mobile applications that deliver an enhanced user experience for customers. Smart business leaders see the writing on the wall around mobile growth and are investing in the right IT infrastructure to help them capitalize on the opportunities.
Bringing mobile to the mainframe provides an opportunity for organizations integrating new mobile services with existing organizational processes, without sacrificing the client’s experience. IBM zEnterprise delivers an unmatched ability to scale up and out to manage high volumes and unpredictable levels of transactions. Banks today are struggling with high volumes of transactions (see article at http://www.bbc.com/news/business-26387754) and are looking to the mainframe to help them tackle transaction growth. IBM zEnterprise delivers proven mobile end-to-end integration for bringing mobile into an mainframe environment
zEnterprise also is the most, secure trusted platform and already the IT backbone for a number of organizations. The unmatched reliability, availability, and security of the IBM mainframe gives businesses the satisfaction of knowing that all critical customer data is protected.
Also, with Worklight on z/Linux, mainframe organizations can remain agile and quickly build, test, run and manage mobile applications for iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Smartphones, tablets, desktops and laptops. IBM Worklight can help mainframe organizations reduce app development and maintenance costs, improve app time-to-market and enhance mobile app governance and security.
Is your organization’s IT infrastructure prepared to manage four times the mobile transactions that you are managing today? It’s time for mainframe organizations to seriously consider bringing your new and existing mobile applications and services to the mainframe to manage the mobile growth in the years to come!
