1. Timelines can be accelerated via « data gravity.
The idea that data draws in more data and encourages the creation of applications that use that data is known as data gravity. To put it another way, more data will be stored wherever it is. As the interrelationships between the collected data are analyzed and comprehended, applications will be developed to increase business value wherever more data is stored. Aggregated data can be used to gain competitive advantage, productivity enhancements, and customer buying behavior.
Using this idea, a data-first mainframe to cloud strategy shortens timelines. Companies can immediately begin storing and managing their mainframe data in the cloud and use the created inertia to move the project forward rather than committing to lengthy and painful processes. zDevOps Integration Jenkins
