The 3rd Platform is causing businesses to rethink their entire IT infrastructure as a result of the steep growth in worldwide numbers of Internet of Things (IoT) systems and mobile devices with which end users drive increased data analytics and transactions on back-end systems. The 3rd Platform also involves the new paradigm of cloud as the delivery model and the emergence of big data as a critical source for gaining valuable business and client insights with sophisticated analytical tools. In addition,
social computing is impacting how consumers communicate and businesses gather customer insights and market their products. The new-generation mainframes are designed to bring all this together through a scalable, secure, and lightning-fast platform for digital transformation to a mobile and interconnected world.
