The mainframe architecture has served the archiving, transaction, and system of record needs of organizations for an impressively long time – but the costs to maintain these systems are skyrocketing (10-15% each year!) and they are not agile enough to handle today’s modern data applications and exploding data volumes.

You know you need to deal with your mainframe problem – but in the past you didn’t love your options. Sure, SQL is more agile than a mainframe, but the reliance on a fixed schema locks data in, requiring endless ETL cycles. And, it still lacks the elasticity to handle growing data volumes. So you put the decision off.

Delay no more – there is a fix! MarkLogic’s operational and transactional Enterprise NoSQL solution allows you to move from Mainframe to NoSQL to get the flexibility and cost-savings you need – and without sacrificing reliability, performance or security.

Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with capabilities such as:
