Why Sandhata PopUp Mainframe?

COVID-19 has dramatically accelerated the need for organisations to digitally transform and to find ways to save time and money. Until now, mainframes have been hugely expensive to upgrade or change with niche skills required to manipulate managed environments.

This has led Sandhata to develop PopUp Mainframe, harnessing the power of IBM’s zD&T mainframe emulator to enable you to spin up as many mainframe environments as you need, cheaply and quickly. Development teams or individuals can now have their own mainframe to boost project performance to a new level.
