Cyber Security

Are you really secure?

2016-2017 Cyber Crime Costs are now projected to reach $2 Trillion per year.

Three years ago, the The Wall Street Journal estimated that the cost of cyber crime in the U.S. was approximately $100 billion. The estimate disputed other reports which pegged the numbers by as much as ten times higher – Forbes

‘Crime wave’ is an understatement when you consider the costs that businesses are suffering as a result of cyber crime. ‘Epidemic’ is more like it.

Cyber crime may be the single, greatest threat to every company in the world.

z/OS to Open Systems

Sandpiper understands the significant role the zOS mainframe legacy processors have played in IT for many years. Huge workloads, critical applications, intensive IO requirements and rock-solid availability have become just another days work for the z-systems family for over 40 years now.

However, we also understand that the costs to maintain this infrastructure as well as the dwindling supply of skills needed to support zOS continue to beg the question: “should we migrate to another platform?”.

While your initial review of the pure cost of zOS compared to the promise of cheap processing in the cloud may look attractive, can your business actually run and provide the quality of service your customers have come to expect post-migration to either inhouse, CO-LO or Cloud x86 type solutions?
