Topaz Connect

Connect to Modern IT Processes and Apps

Connect Disparate Tools and Processes to Include the Mainframe in Enterprise DevOps

Topaz Connect bridges the IT systems that manage mainframe applications with modern tooling used to manage non-mainframe applications. By connecting the mainframe to disparate platforms in the enterprise, companies can eliminate siloes to ensure the mainframe is included in DevOps processes.
Companies can use Topaz Connect to:

  • Seamlessly connect mainframe software to modern IT processes and applications
  • Bring mainframe change processes and source code management into business workflows
  • Maximize enterprise IT automation and agility by reducing disparate manual processes

The Value of Topaz Connect

  • Eliminates siloes created by lack of integrated tooling, enabling faster delivery of business value
  • Leverages existing IT service management (ITSM) investments
  • Includes the mainframe in DevOps processes
  • Enhances process efficiencies
  • Enables mainframe-inexperienced programmers to manage mainframe code

Key Features of Topaz Connect

Leverage Existing ITSM Investments

Topaz Connect allows developers to:

  • Connect Compuware ISPW and ITSM solutions such as BMC, ServiceNow and Tivoli
  • Track processes for mainframe applications in the same manner as for other platforms
  • Communicate specifics of an ITSM code change to ISPW
  • Use an ITSM solution to track all progress of the workflow right through to deployment

Leverage Legacy Source Code Management Tools

Use Topaz Connect to access CA Endevor functionality and execute a range of Endevor capabilities in Eclipse via Compuware Topaz Workbench, including:

  • Adding and moving elements in the lifecycle
  • Generating (compiling) elements
  • Creating packages
  • Moving groups in the lifecycle

Develop Custom Integration Points

Topaz Connect enables additional interaction between mainframe resident processes and off-platform applications. Secure and flexible middleware allows customers to integrate applications and processes with mainframe REXX scripting.
