Business: It’s the middle name of both COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language) and IBM (International Business Machines). It’s the reason why the mainframe grew into the place where the world’s business of record occurs. And business is what has paid the bills for decades of mainframe advancement.

But what does that mean? How much business happens on the mainframe, and how is it designed, operated and advancing to continue to move the world economy forward, with all the relevant business requirements that entails?

In this video, Ross Mauri, general manager of IBM Z, and Greg Lotko, senior vice president and general manager at Broadcom, tell us how the mainframe platform is serving today’s global business mandates and is ready to meet tomorrow's needs.
