posed by complexity and capacity of the mainframe systems for our

investments are inevitable for hardware, software, facilities and support
requirements.We understand the pressures on your IT, and hence we
have designed a delivery system so that you can delivera great service
to your customers.

and times of rapid growthand also to make sure the other two major
pain points, security and business continuity, are taken care given the
increasing regulatory requirements can be amighty challenge. These
challenges are serious enough for the current business continuity that it
ceases you from planning for the future.Our range of on-, near- and
offshore IT-enabled services make sure you can.

organizationdemands highmaturity in terms of cost-effectiveness.
Mainframe environments are expectednot only to be maintained with
cost-effective systems but also to exhibit the overall value that they
bring to the organization in terms of short and long-term structure and
Should outsourcing Mainframe Data Center Management be an option
that can satisfy the need of bringing cost-effective system in place? This

takeinto consideration numerous variables. Working with right

· Lower TCO
Mainframe Economies of Scale can be achieved via vendor distribution
where Maintec’s clients typically save 30-40% on their Mainframe
operating costs, when they outsource. Vendor distributionis nothing but
spreading over hardware, software, personnel, power, infrastructure,
and disaster recovery costs over multiple customers.
Outsourcing Does Help your Mainframe
Environment GenerateValue. How?
4. · Pay for what you use
Enterprises have the advantage of turning their fixed cost into a variable
cost by paying for mainframe processing just like they paytheir monthly
utility bills. Through Mainframe outsourcing, our clients enjoy
pay-per-use advantage - Pay only for what you need and avoid upfront
· Skilled Mainframe Resources
Getting direct access to highly skilled remote staff through email,
Skype, VOIP or video conferencinghelp freeing up our customer
organizations from overhead tensions of hiring, training and recruiting
resources for critical Mainframe services.
It is always better and much cheaper to outsource for companies that are
moving their facilities instead of investing in building a new data center.
· Moving off the Mainframe
Companies that are moving off the mainframe to another platform can
have their staff focus on the new application(s)/platform(s) rather than
keeping the “old stuff” running each day.
· Data back-up
Companies keep business critical data at various locations as back-up as
a Disaster recovery solution.
