As mainframe application complexity and relevance continue to rise, IT Operations and Application Development collaboration is essential to solve quality and performance problems fast. But solving problems is difficult enough when you have the facts. Trying to resolve them without the right information is nearly impossible. More often than not, when Operations or QA manually communicates the specifics about the problem to Development, critical information gets left out, resulting in prolonged resolution times. And constant development distractions mean a growing application backlog.
