mainframe solutions for the digital generation
We expose mainframe data & other business critical information via a RESTful Gateway. By natively exposing the underlying data, we enable digital applications to be developed rapidly in modern languages - negating the need for legacy code.
Our technology enables you to future proof existing mainframe operations or migrate off the mainframe. Unlike other products which expose the business logic as RESTful, we natively expose the underlying data allowing new digital applications to be coded in modern languages and hosted off platform.
We're called Mainframe Cloud because we allow you to manage your z/OS platform with the agility of a typical "cloud" experience. Our InterActive deploys via SaaS but operates within the confines of your organisation's intranet. Close your web-browser once you've launched.

Projects & Case Studies
Enabling the Next Generation of IT Professionals
The ATO is the Australian Government's principal revenue collection agency. A number of ATO staff require access to mainframe information in order to perform their roles effectively. Accessing mainframe information often requires assistance from specialist mainframe staff. Mainframe Cloud's Explore and Command applications allow non-specialists to navigate the mainframe in a user intuitive way without requiring specialist assistance. The result is an increase in the level of efficiency and productivity.
Mainframe Data Migration
Mainframe Cloud's RunTime Adaptor was integrated with Pentaho (an ETL solution from Hitachi Vantara) to facilitate ingestion of Db2 data from System z mainframes. The RunTime Adaptor is a proprietary web service API that exposes several mainframe sub-systems and data sources as RESTful. Integration with Pentaho facilitates automated migration of mainframe Db2 data to Hadoop or any other mid-tier database at scale with minimal overhead.
