Leave Day-Old Data Where It Belongs: In The Past

Lozen is the real-time, no-code alternative for connecting mainframe data to modern apps. Deliver better apps, drive better outcomes.

The Lozen Story

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

There’s a Better Way

Staying competitive means delivering cutting-edge apps and using your data to drive smart business decisions.

Yet, gaps between the mainframe, cloud, and distributed platforms too often inhibit innovation. Many of today’s applications and BI systems run in the cloud, while critical data still lives on the mainframe.

Existing “best practices” for bridging that gap (like ETL, API-based, and data re-hosting approaches) are clunky, expensive, and have significant downsides.

  • Common methods of accessing mainframe data require you to copy your data, which introduces new risks and prevents a single source of truth.
  • These copies reflect a moment in time that grows more stale with each passing minute.
  • Other methods require custom code that’s burdensome to develop and maintain.
  • These approaches also require time from mainframe teams, where a talent shortage means people are already spread thin.

With the arrival of Lozen and its ability to empower your modern hybrid cloud applications with real-time mainframe data, you can find new opportunities, improve your agility, and drive better business outcomes, all without compromising security or efficiency.
