Expert guidance, innovative solutions, and advanced support tools that ensure the highest quality of service.

World-Class IBM Mainframe Support & Maintenance

Mainframe computers are the backbone of many data centers storing mission critical applications and important data for industries including banking, finance, health care, insurance, and government. But what happens when these complex devices or their operating systems reach their end of service life milestones? IBM Mainframe support with the OEM might still be an option – but often comes at a high cost.

Automated Event Management

Receives service information (error code, part number, device location) from the machine’s hardware layer, and performs predictive analysis to determine cause of failure.

  • This information is processed and filtered into meaningful, “Service Required” tickets. These automatically generated tickets then initiate the preparation and dispatch of a field engineer.
  • This approach results in more first-time fixes.

Park Place’s monitoring solution is a hardware-layer monitoring tool only, and as such, has no access to customer data.
