We Love the Mainframe

The last thing you need is another report telling you where cost and optimization problems are in your environment but then leaves you with the continuous, manual monitoring and heavy lifting to fix it. You manually write code, move work around, wade through SCRT reports, continuously monitor peak usage and finally analyze invoices 30 days later to see if anything worked.

That’s a bit like whack-a-mole.

We believe MLC cost reduction strategies can be better. By leveraging the mainframe’s reputation of excellence, we deliver new ways to reduce mainframe software license fees.


Believe scalability is a mainframe benefit


Say availability is a key mainframe benefit


Highlight mainframe security as a top feature

Supplier Diversity for Bottomline Impact

VirtualZ is the first and only nationally certified women-owned mainframe ISV. We are proud to be on the ground floor of SHARE.org’s Women in IT initiative, creating impactful content and programming to support and develop a collaborative and diverse workforce in the mainframe.

Diversity is critical to the well-being of companies and is correlated to more productive companies as measured by market value and revenue, more attractive work environments for talent recruitment/retention and higher levels of innovation.

VirtualZ is a certified member of:
