Webinar: Compiling-as-a-Service with VirtualZ, ISAM & Baer Consulting
Join mainframe industry leaders to learn how to reduce your software license fees by running your IBM Z COBOL, C++, PL/1, and Fortran compiles in a z/OS public mainframe cloud, licensed as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

Although we are fully immersed in the revolution of the cloud, the benefits of cloud computing have been limited to distributed computing, eluding mainframe environments and applications. This gap —the ability to dynamically use cloud resources to execute z/OS workloads—presents a tremendous opportunity for customers to drastically reduce software license fees.
VirtualZ, ISAM and Baer Consulting will discuss how compiling licensed as-a-service lets you easily shift workloads to various clouds:
1. To achieve lower costs
2. Fulfill excess capacity needs
3. Flexibly test and deploy new applications
Mainframe industry analysts are saying VirtualZ is “worth and look” and “a good idea.” Showcased as a thought leader and innovative company in the 2020 Innovate Minnesota book, in partnership with the Minnesota Technology Association, VirtualZ creates cost modernization software that enables public and private mainframe clouds and reduces IBM Z and ISV software license fees.
