Mainframe Integration, Offloading and Replacement with Apache Kafka®

Register Now

Available On-Demand

Mainframes are still hard at work, processing over 70 percent of the world’s most essential computing transactions every day. However, they were built for an era where batch data movement was the norm and can be difficult to integrate into today’s data-driven, real-time, analytics-focused business processes. High costs and monolithic architectures are just a couple of the key challenges for mainframe applications. It's time we get more innovative!

Mainframe offloading with Apache Kafka and its ecosystem can be used to keep a more modern data store in real-time sync with the mainframe. At the same time, it is persisting the event data on the bus to enable microservices, and deliver the data to other systems such as data warehouses and search indexes.

The final goal and ultimate vision is to replace the mainframe with new applications using modern and less costly technologies. Stand up to the dinosaur, but keep in mind that legacy migration is a journey. This session will guide you to the next step of your company’s evolution!
