What is Mainframe?

Mainframe is a high performance multi-user computer system which facilitates easy processing of bulk data with heightened security features. It is especially crucial for governments and large organizations. In other words, mainframe systems are the most scalable, available, reliable and secured systems in the world capable of performing about a million instructions per second. Now, that’s something!

Why Mainframe?

Mainframes are used for applications involving database management of any organisation or industry that work with extreme high volumes of data such as banking, finance, healthcare, insurance, government etc.

Even though Mainframe is a legacy system and slightly outdated, it still holds 60-70% of world’s total business database.

What are the benefits of learning Mainframe?

  • It’s easy to learn.
  • You need not have any background technical knowledge (Even suitable for ECE/EEE/E&I/CSE/IT/MECH Candidates)
  • All MNC companies have Mainframe projects.
  • It presents an easy opportunity to kick-start your career in an MNC with good starting package.
  • Competition is less for Mainframe candidates as compared to other technology.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Engineering and MCA Graduates (Graduated in 2016/17)
  • Candidates should have minimum 60% marks throughout their academic session (10th/12th/Graduation)
