Futurum’s Steven Dickens provides his take on the announcements coming out of AWS re:Invent related to the mainframe platform. AWS continues to sharpen its focus on the venerable mainframe platform with a more comprehensive partnership with Micro Focus.
Futurum’s Steven Dickens provides his take on an interesting week in the mainframe space. Congressman Matt Cartwright (D-PA-08) looks to get support for the Grace Hopper Code for Us Act in the House to fund higher ed training for IT jobs and addressing the shortage of professionals with a background in older coding languages needed to maintain and modernize critical government IT systems. Micro Focus plays a significant role in that initiative, and Broadcom looks to transform the mainframe landscape through Open Source with The Linux Foundation, Open Mainframe Project. Very interesting times ahead for the mainframe industry.
Futurum’s Steven Dickens analyzes first half 2021 results for Micro Focus and finds encouraging news on the company’s strategic focus on three year back end transformation and the forging of encouraging partnerships. Micro Focus is focused on explosive growth areas of the market so should be one to watch as they continue to deliver on operational execution.
