2010 State Of The Mainframe Survey - alive and welJCOTTON (775912) writes "Here are the results of InfoSec's 2010 State Of The Mainframe Survey, which was conducted in July of 2010. The overwhelming result of the survey is that the mainframe is alive and well and will continue to be a critical component of the IT infrastructure going forward.
Most respondents indicated that they have stayed the same or grown over the past two years.
Key findings of the survey include:
59 percent of respondents indicated that the number of MIPS has increased or stayed the same over the past two years;
53 percent stated that their mainframe budget has increased or stayed the same over the past two years;
One-fourth (24 percent) stated that their mainframe staffing levels have increased in the past two years while 35 percent indicated they have stayed the same.
So all in all, it looks like the mainframe is going to be around for a long, long time.
