About the 2024 Arcati Yearbook

The Arcati Mainframe Yearbook is more than just a publication; it’s a platform where mainframe enthusiasts connect, learn, and grow. With over 21,000 downloads each year and a growing community through our Planet Mainframe partnership, we’re expecting even more this time around.

You can still access the current edition of the Yearbook here, and we encourage you to share this opportunity with your fellow mainframe professionals. The more responses we gather, the clearer the picture we can paint of the dynamic mainframe landscape.

If your organization wears multiple hats as a vendor, consultant, or service provider in the mainframe domain, don’t miss the opportunity to have your details featured in the Yearbook. You can do this by completing the vendor information form at this link.

We are also still accepting Sponsor Support for the Yearbook with opportunities including ads, article inclusion, and more. Contact Amanda Hendley ( for more information.
