Mainframe giants have been considered to be dinosaurs short of extinction but now prove to be needed more than ever! Yet today 60 percent of all Mainframe experts are 50 years old, more going on 60, which implies, that Mainframe experts are becoming a rare thing on the market – and their much needed knowledge is vanishing rapidly.
The number of already existing and planned Mainframe installations with regard to e-economy and e-business exceeds all expectations.
Globally two thirds of all data is stored on Mainframe mass storages. They represent nothing less than the backbone of all complex systems and IT landscapes.
Converted to computing power per user, Mainframe installations are more cost efficient than server farms. A large number of companies decides for investing in Mainframe, even if acquisition costs are higher. Demand therefor remains stable.
Companies secure their own future by continuously training their own employees in order to be independent of external service providers.
The increased need for Mainframe experts currently faces a lack of training and qualification offers – in spite of good career prospects.
It’s a fact: Mainframe experts face great future prospects!
