In Paris, François-Xavier Floren, CEO of RSD, delivered an encouraging keynote, where we see mainframe budgets being slowly reduced on the long term. “The major effect related to this trend is a lost in effectiveness”, he said. “What we do at RSD is provide a creative response with helping innovation get a higher value out of IT… Yes, it’s possible to address innovation in the mainframe area. We’re here to take care of the technology, but our purpose is to help you innovate and become more efficient in your core business. Therefore, to bring you the most valuable resources, we need feed-back from you on your business issues…We’re here to listen to you…”.
He rapidly highlighted RSD’s next initiatives: “To help you consolidate all the tools you’re actually using for output management, wherever they come from; improve your operation environment with new features, a more appealing interface; enhance the methodology and draft a roadmap for new non-disruptive approach to improve your security.”
