Triton also thinks that IBM Mainframes still have a lot to give. They are resilient, scalable and secure and offer solid availability.
With some of the most experienced and qualified consultants in the industry, Triton has been at the forefront of applying modernisation tools and processes to the mainframe platform and managing culture change to keep the mainframe a first-class citizen in the IT landscape.

Mainframe DevOps aims to address these challenges by adopting the following principles and practices:
Adopting DevOps practices for mainframe systems can lead to significant benefits, such as improved software quality, faster release cycles, increased efficiency, and better alignment with business objectives while cutting costs and risks. It allows organisations to modernise their mainframe development processes and keep up with the ever-changing demands of the digital age.
