In the early days of this decade, the world's governments put the world economy into existential peril as they attempted to "lock down" public interaction, resulting in the world's econo­mies shutting down. Even when the most destructive restrictions were loosened, there was a considerable amount of less onerous restrictions which lingered on for many months.

Is the mainframe still necessary? Well, let's put it this way: If all the world's mainframes shut down, we'd be facing a zombie apocalypse. That's a bit hyperbolic but the underlying point stands: Without mainframes, banks couldn't process financial transactions at ATMs or online, retailers' ecommerce platforms would go dark, and healthcare systems would be unable to access patient records or other vital information. Mainframes are still a vital part of the modern enterprise. If they no longer existed, businesses would lose access to years of records and entire computing systems would crash.
