Abstract [en]

This Essay is meant to look into the possibilities of the mainframe systems and whether they have a spot as one of the leading information system service providers in the foreseeable future. In conclusion, “How does the future of the mainframe look?”. Numerous big IT media providers such as news services, blogs and forums have written about the subject of whether the mainframe is going to last as one of the go-to platforms for core operation information systems. This essay is going to look into the actual state of the mainframe, and where the mainframe is heading in the future. It also delves further into what options there currently are to the mainframe platform and why these options might be better or worse than the mainframe.To answer these questions the essay will present the results of research from multiple large international companies such as IBM, Ericsson and Volvo. During these interviews questions have been answered about the current situation of the mainframe, why it is currently suffering from rumors about being on the brink of death, and what the companies actually think about the mainframe.The Essay does not look too deeply into the technical aspects of the mainframe platform, but more at the system as a whole, and its organizational impact in larger companies. To help do this the essay makes use of the DeLean and McLone model of information system success.As with all matters regarding the future, even this essay could not with certainty state exactly what will happen with the mainframe platform in the future. However multiple interesting conclusions were made about the future and alternatives of the mainframe.
