Get the most from your hardware and plan in advance for future upgrades to run as cost effectively as possible.

Assembler Programming

mainframeicon_assemblertwo

Whilst not strictly speaking a Systems Programming discipline, typically we find customers that have system exits written in assembler. These need maintaining when new software is installed or when new functionality is needed. We have very experienced consultants that can do this and also assist in the documentation of this code.

Support

DBA Support

We can provide cost effective support, from UK and Europe. Ignite Mainframe staff can also be placed on 2nd line support duties to be used to cover times of low staff numbers, for example holidays, or when emergency cover is needed to supplement own staff levels.

Business Case

We can independently help with business cases. Whether it is for new software, a swap or perhaps just showing the real savings of a mainframe when comparing it to expensive server farms.
