Optimization opportunities for your Tailored Fit Pricing journey
Wed April 14, 2021 11:05 AM
Mark as Inappropriate
Many enterprises face a conundrum when it comes the mainframe. There's pressure to innovate and build new applications while feeling constrained by capacity, performance, and operating budgets. As
clients continue to adopt
Tailored Fit Pricing
and the tooling to support it
they become more empowered with insights to understand how their workloads are impacting operational costs.
Tailored Fit Pricing brings new opportunity. Under the traditional Monthly License Charge (MLC) model, aka the 'Rolling 4 Hour Average' (R4HA), the focus for optimization was solely on the peak 4 hours of the month. But with Tailored Fit Pricing, where every MSU is of equal importance, there are suddenly ~740 other hours in the month that are ripe for optimization.
Many solutions exist to help eliminate inefficiencies and control MSU consumption across every hour in the month. Clients can leverage application modernization approaches, upgrade to the latest compiler technologies, or ensure zIIP-eligible workloads are utilized properly. Another potential solution is that of high-performance in-memory processing. Clients have traditionally used high-performance in-memory processing to
and drive capacity for new workload
s in both batch and online scenarios.
