Revolutionizing Utility IT O&M:
Escape IBM’s Mainframe Maintenance Maze

Keeping O&M spending low is the name of the game in the utilities and energy sectors, but IT innovation is just as important. OEM policies and ELA terms make it difficult to avoid increasing costs on mainframe software maintenance that significantly reduce budget available for digital transformation priorities down the road.



Utilities struggle with implementing transformation strategies while keeping O&M budgets low. And yet every year many are facing a two-headed dragon, as continuing Z-Mainframe software support becomes more costly with every renewal and upgrade and takes away from budgets needed for digital transformation priorities.

In this webinar, Origina SVP Global Marketing and Thought Leadership Hari Candadai is joined by former NiSource CIO Mike Rozsa and former Southern California Edison Software Asset and Licensing Manager Chris Lecosia for an informed talk on optimizing mainframe software maintenance and support – even when OEMs would rather keep you locked into lopsided service terms and long-term contracts.

Watch on-demand today and learn how to:

  • Achieve up to a 50% reduction in IBM Mainframe Software Support and Maintenance Fees, liberating budgets for strategic initiatives.
  • Avoid forced upgrades, ensuring a tailored approach that meets your specific needs.
  • Gain pre-audit guidance for IBM license entitlements, empowering utilities to navigate licensing complexities.


Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and a proven strategy for optimizing your utility’s O&M costs while ensuring compliance with IBM licensing.
