HP, Intel Corp. and Oracle Corp. today announced a joint initiative the three say will help organizations increase performance, reduce operational cost, and mitigate risk when moving applications from mainframe systems to open standards-based server environments.

Introduced at Oracle OpenWorld, the Application Modernization Initiative helps a firm modernize legacy application portfolios running on mainframes.

The initiative uses service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles and enterprise grid computing platforms that provide increased reliability and efficiency without the dependency on legacy mainframe skills.

It incorporates HP servers based on Intel Itanium processors running Oracle infrastructure software. The program also includes Application Modernization Services from HP along with access to architectural support from all three companies.
