For banks, ATMs were revolutionary for customers who wanted access to their accounts beyond branch banking hours. Without the mainframe, the banking business would not be able to securely and effectively perform such large-scale transaction processing. The mainframe has also taken mobile banking to the next level – with the mobile device acting as the terminal from which data integration systems extract and move data, relaying it back and forth between necessary resources.

However, if you already do own one, there are definitely reasons to keep it. The cost of getting hundreds of thousands of lines of code transferred over would probably alone outweigh the benefits of switching to cloud. Also, mainframes have the capability to be customized and specialized more than cloud services can, as the hardware itself is in control of the user. Mainframe computers can have nothing to do with your internet connection, which is good because it reduces bandwidth being used and allows for easy use even when the internet is down.

One benefit large companies enjoy about mainframes is the 100% complete control over their own data. When using cloud services, you are trusting a 3rd party company to not touch your data. With mainframes, you never need to worry about them snooping or touching your data. However, most large cloud companies are quite trustworthy and the chances of them doing something you don't want them to is quite small.

Mainframes are now often regarded as giant machines sitting in the museums and COBOL obsolete. However, the reality is that many industries are still relying heavily on mainframes as their major application backbones. This is due to their impeccable security, high availability and fault-tolerance nature of the technology. This is particularly true for the banking industry which handles voluminous transactional data and 24x7 nature of the business.
