Last week, Planet Mainframe joined forces with Adaptigent to bring you a webinar session that stands out from the typical ‘mainframe modernization’ talks that often sound like sales pitches for cloud services. Titled Five Ways to Reduce Business Costs with Connected Systems, this session offered a refreshing perspective.
Led by Don Spoerke, a seasoned veteran with three decades of experience in enterprise modernization, and Chase Peery, a skilled software engineer and language-independent developer, this webinar goes beyond theory. It dives into real-world examples spanning industries like air travel, FinTech, and retail, addressing various levels of mainframe complexity.
The key takeaway? The clients in these cases harnessed the power of APIs without the need for coding. Using Adaptive Integration Fabric, they seamlessly ran the API engine across different platforms and even gained direct access to data. Whether you’re grappling with compliance challenges, aiming to stay competitive in your field, or just save some costs, this concise 30-minute session is a worthwhile watch for anyone looking to optimize their business processes.
