Have you ever thought about how having a mainframe with its great reliability and availability can help your personal life? No? Well it can.
Watch this great new YouTube video about how the reliability of IBM System z wins the heart of the Credit Unions System of Brazil (Sicoob) Marcos Vinicius' wife. Sicoob is the largest credit system in Brazil. They had a distributed server environment with significant technology limitations, including lack of availability and lots of calls on problems. They moved to the mainframe and the phone quit ringing.
This is a great example that shows of how the mainframe is still the premier platform for security, high availability and performance designed to support new technologies like Mobile, Big Data and Cloud. It shows the value of putting new workloads on the mainframe. Check it out below or on YouTube at http://bit.ly/1chN3VG
