I'd like to draw your attention to a webinar we at Delphix are cohosting with our partner PopUp Mainframe and Microsoft Cloud on Wednesday 21st September, 4pm BST.
National Grid use PopUp Mainframe on Azure, in conjunction with Delphix, to spin up new mainframe environments with secure data on-demand. Prior to this project the Billing System transformation programme at National Grid was severely hampered by #mainframe test environment unavailability across multiple systems.
Dev & Test mainframe environments were already close to capacity, so mainframe modernisation initiatives required acquiring expensive new hardware. One mainframe modernisation project (using z/OS Connect to improve mainframe access) could not proceed without additional environments.
National Grid's cloud-first policy fuelled the desire to:
Create dev and test environments in the cloud
Remove third-party dependency
Improve agility with on-demand access
and reduce cost
The new self-service capability has transformed National Grid's ability to deliver transformative change across billing systems. Using Delphix and PopUp Mainframe
running on Azure, National Grid accelerated their projects. The company is now spinning up new mainframe environments with the latest secured data using automation pipelines in minutes.
Delphix and PopUp on Azure empowered National Grid with autonomy over their mainframe systems and the ability to increase productivity. National Grid can now immediately innovate to solve business problems using ephemeral mainframe environments spun up on demand. They have already redeveloped some of their legacy .NET processes using modern tooling.
