The Environment

Many organizations today struggle to support their IBM Mainframe environment as existing staff are lost due to attrition, retirement, and for other reasons. For many firms, the mainframe hosts critical business functions and the loss of expertise can have a catastrophic impact.

The Trap

When staff attrition occurs, regardless of cause, a quick fix one-for-one replacement is often not the best solution. The factors which drive the attrition remain.

The problem is rarely the departing individual, but the evolution of technology and perception that Mainframe support careers are not exciting or are going nowhere. All the talk of “abandon your mainframe” have certainly contributed to this perception.

GTSG disagrees with this perception. We have been providing Mainframe services for more than 30 years, and will do so for many years to come.

We offer flexible solutions ranging from individual skills augmentation to fully managed services.
