Whether you are adding workloads to your mainframe or trying to reduce your reliance on it, BMC mainframe cost management solutions are important to your efforts. BMC Cost Analyzer and Intelligent Capping will help your growing business lower mainframe costs while ensuring that your most important applications and services run problem-free. MainView Monitoring helps you identify and solve issues faster so you can spend more time running your business.

Mainframe costs are a concern for any IT organization, but companies with lower processor usage (fewer than 2,000 MIPS/100 MSUs at peak) may actually be paying more per resource unit than companies with larger mainframes. With mainframe monthly license charge (MLC) costs rising 4% to 7% each year, optimizing usage is critical.

The tools available in MainView Monitoring take the guess work out of optimizing your mainframe performance. Detailed reports and analytics, seamless configuration changes, and integration with our cost optimization solutions make it easy to streamline CPU resources, minimize downtime, and eliminate waste.

BMC helps growing companies take decisive actions to manage mainframe costs. Take these savings and immediately reinvest them back into your business for a quick ROI.
