Do you currently work in a shop that are planning on shutting down the Mainframe?

I hear lot's of talk among friends and peers about companies moving workload off the mainframe or planning on shutting down the mainframe completely.
This is an informal poll to see what is happening.

Note: The poll will count only one vote per domain, so if someone at your company beat you to the punch, it will show that you voted already. Unless you are a registered user logged in,  in that case it is one vote per user regardless of domain.

The Mainframe is strategic to our business. No plans on shutting it down.
