  • When it comes to mission-critical workloads, even a brief period of unplanned downtime can result in negative consequences for those clients, your employees, your brand reputation and the bottom line.
  • “Availability comes down to what a specific enterprise needs,” said IBM Technology Support Services Solution Assurance Manager Leslie Campbell. “They often require 100% uptime and prefer a planned outage of a few hours to achieve that.”
  • Optimized availability requires planned maintenance strategies. Good planning constitutes fixes applicable to the enterprise’s IT infrastructure and considers factors such as application and system interoperability, pervasive problem handling, and managing changes when problems happen. Proper planning not only helps improve availability by preventing problems during normal operations, it also helps minimize system downtime during a planned maintenance window.

Your average person likely doesn’t realize just how much they depend on a mainframe tutorial to use apps on their mobile phones, fill prescriptions or perform countless other everyday tasks.
