  • Flexing to meet your needs

    IT can be a complex and demanding part of your business. RSM aims to simplify delivery of your mainframe services and take away the time consuming and costly management that comes with it, coupled with a general lack of understanding or appreciation for what it does. With every client engagement different, RSM has well defined and tested processes, experience and the resources to deliver what you need, at the cost you want to pay. We can provide fully managed, function specific or out-tasking services. These cover all aspects of mainframe infrastructure management: from building and maintaining your environment; out-of-hours support; business as usual system programing onsite or offsite; and mainframe storage through to performance optimization.

    RSM managed mainframe services are typically underpinned by appropriate Service Level Agreements (SLAs), a responsibility assignment (RACI) matrix and an appointed RSM Service Delivery Manager (SDM) acting as a single point of contact for assuring the service is delivered as expected and agreed.
