Zowe Connector with IBM Mainframe and Cloud

Hi John,
I have been intrigued with the potential of ZOWE and wanted to know if Zowe has capability built in to connect with any existing IBM Mainframe for a client and act as a bridge between the traditional Mainframe with Cloud Ecosystem. I have seen this use case play out for sometime now. Would love to get your feedback on this functionality if not existing.
