GT Software and Microsoft are pleased to announce a jointly organized half-day
workshop on May 2^nd at the Microsoft Office in New York, NY.

During this workshop attendees will learn how to reduce their mainframe
operating costs, as well as gaining insights on how companies large and small
have successfully migrated their mainframe applications to .NET.

Discussion topics will include:

  *Addressing critical considerations to determine if you move, stay or
    perform a low risk POC and the implications with each
  *When is the best time to consider options for moving off the mainframe
  *What is the best approach for a phased migration and how to reduce all
  *How to achieve significant cost savings by moving traditional batch
    processes off the mainframe

“In the current state of the economy, the case for moving mainframe
applications to .NET has never been stronger. This solution can provide better
performance and save organizations considerable amounts of money. Microsoft
and GT have teamed up to make the case for mainframe migrations,” says Wilson
Rains, VP of Global Alliances at GT Software.

Bob Ellsworth, WW Director of Platform Modernization, Microsoft Corp. adds:
“With the high availability features of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn and
Windows Server 2012’s ability to support 64 cores and 1 Terabyte per virtual
machine, it is time to take a second look at modernizing your mainframe
workloads to the Microsoft Platform.”
