eWeek: IBM has announced that technology to support Microsoft Windows on its mainframe hardware via the zEnterprise System will become available December 16. That will allow enterprise users to consolidate applications and data on their mainframe systems, resulting in cost savings of  up to 70 percent, according to IBM.
