Revolutionize Your Data Access With Lozen

Lozen™ software is VirtualZ Computing’s revolutionary solution that unlocks the power of real-time, read-write data access — from any platform, anytime, anywhere.

With Lozen, you can leave data where it is — securely on the IBM Z platform — eliminating the need to replicate or “lift and shift” data during migration.

Our strategic data access solution was inspired by an Apache warrior and battlefield strategist named Lozen. As the first women-founded, women-led IBM Z ISV in history — and with Native American and diverse heritage across our team — Lozen’s story threads deeply within VirtualZ.

What can Lozen do for me?

44% of businesses say they have z/OS applications they would like to move off z/OS but can’t because the application:

  • 40.9% 40.9%

“Operates in real time on data that resides on the mainframe”*

  • 38.6% 38.6%

”Uses data that cannot move off the mainframe”*

Our technology — which is built on familiar, industry-standard protocols and APIs that maintain mainframe-level security — unlocks broader data access at a lower cost and enables simpler application migration, all in a no-code implementation. Here’s a look at some key ways Lozen can help you.

Enable Broader Data Access at a Lower Cost

Unlock Faster, Simpler Application Migration

Gain Simple and Secure Access to Mainframe Data from Multiple Application Environments

Achieve More Efficient ETL, Data Transformation, and Change Data Capture

Lozen offers organizations a new and efficient paradigm for mainframe data access.  With Lozen, an application running in the cloud or on distributed platforms has easy, secure, real-time, read-write access to IBM Z data.  Since the data remains on the mainframe, there is no need to replicate or “lift and shift” it, reducing your organization’s data access costs and MIPS consumption.

Over time, I want to move all my applications from the mainframe to the cloud or other distributed platforms. During the migration period, some of my applications will need shared access to data on the mainframe.

I want a hybrid model. I’m going to leave some applications on the mainframe and move some applications to the cloud, and I want them both to share access to VSAM data on the mainframe.

I’m a Micro Focus Enterprise Server customer, and I want to expedite my application migration and seamlessly access IBM Z data, without any modifications to my application code.

Lozen brings you faster, safer, lower-cost migrations and earlier success in your application migration projects.  With Lozen, migrated applications can run unchanged on their new platform, retaining real-time, read-write shared access to IBM Z data.  This diminishes risk, reduces or eliminates the need for change data capture, and expedites application migration projects.

Reasons for abandoning z/OS application migrations:

”We were facing compliance issues with the data the application uses”*

Lozen 23.7%

“The data could not be segmented or was required to remain on the mainframe”*
