NEW WHITEPAPER: Microsoft Azure Government cloud for mainframe applications

Planning an application migration is the ideal time to add value and agility to even well-established mainframe workloads.

In this quick guide, Larry Mead of AzureCAT shows how United States government agencies and their partners can use Azure Government for mainframe applications—and migration may not be as difficult as you think. Azure Government delivers the advantages of a mainframe in a more cost-efficient and agile environment. In addition, Azure Government earned a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) for FedRAMP High Impact.
