SLEDVision Reduces Annual Cost of Legacy Mainframe Applications

Raleigh, NC, August 4, 2017:  SLEDVision, a cloud-based business intelligence solution for managing IT assets and resources more efficiently, helps customers lower operating cost for legacy mainframe applications.

Over 65% of organizations are struggling to keep cost down for legacy mainframe applications because mainframe cost optimization can be very challenging and difficult.  SLEDVision’s Platform provides the capabilities to address this challenge.  SLEDVision offers Monthly License Charge (MLC) Cost Optimization for the different pricing options available from IBM, like AWLC, VWLC, EWLC, etc.  SLEDVision reduces the cost of IPLA products (OTC and ASC cost). 

In addition, SLEDVision helps organizations save money on new mainframe hardware.  Historically, mainframe hardware cost has dropped but over the past few years, mainframe pricing has increased 30 to 40% by IBM and resellers.  Organizations are now purchasing new mainframes at uncompetitive prices, which increases the cost of IT Services supporting the business. 

SLEDVision provides market analysis for the entire configuration of the mainframe, to include the Model Type, ICF Engines, Memory, zIIP Processors, ESA On-Site, Software (OTC & MLC), and more.  Using SLEDVision, clients have saved between 18% to 32% on mainframe purchases.
