Mainframe End-of-Service: June 30, 2010


Due to the high cost of maintaining and operating the mainframe, NC State is decommissioning it and will be eliminating college and departmental access to the mainframe by June 30, 2010 — for a projected savings of a half-million dollars annually. Migration of the OIT administrative software applications from the mainframe is nearly complete. The Financials, Human Resources and major components of the Student Information Systems have been moved off of the mainframe, and projects necessary to replace the remaining administrative applications are active.

If any of your business processes still rely on accessing the mainframe for information, you should have a migration plan already in place. If you run into any issue that precludes you from implementing your plan, or if you don’t yet have a plan, contact one of the project members listed on the Mainframe End-of-Service project Web site.
