Building a Better Mainframe Release Pipeline

Overview: Learn how to speed up your development time
while keeping quality high in upcoming webcast.

What steel and concrete are to a skyscraper, the mainframe is to the global economy. The mainframe is the transactional backbone for 96 of the world’s top 100 banks, 23 of the 25 top US retailers, and 9 out of 10 of the world’s largest insurance companies.

A Very Modern Mainframe

When you think of a mainframe, you probably think of an old green screen. However, did you know the same modern tools and techniques that you use to build software applications for the cloud and mobile are being used in mainframe software development today? The reason behind it is Agile development and the training of next-gen developers. The new techniques enable accelerated development times, which also means more innovative products for businesses and consumers, too.

With the growth of mission-critical mainframe workload showing no signs of slowing down, application delivery cannot remain slow and complex. Organizations must apply the same DevOps processes to the mainframe environment as they use for distributed, web and cloud platforms. This also means that large enterprises are now able to automate build, test and deploy mainframe releases within the
cross-platform application release pipeline.

A New Way to Work

If your organization is faced with challenges that slow you down, such as siloed teams, uncoordinated deployment, different processes and a lack of testing that leads to quality issues, there is a better way and it’s within reach.

There’s a way to take challenges and turn them into opportunities.

Imagine if you could:

  • Have teams work in the same manner despite working on different platforms
  • Bring unit and functional testing to your mainframe applications to decrease risk
    and increase throughput
  • Control cross-platform deployments from a single source

See it in Action

These are just some of the real-world opportunities that will be covered in the Orchestrate Your
End-to-End Mainframe Application Release Pipeline
webcast, featuring a demonstration of what you can accomplish with Compuware Topaz for Total Test, Compuware ISPW and the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform on November 12, 2019 at 11 a.m. EST.

In this webcast, you will learn how to:

  • Include mainframe releases in a cross-platform DevOps toolchain
    • If your mainframe is the missing link in your toolchain, see how you can fuel new development and respond to the market by making it part of the process
  • Edit and analyze code in Topaz
  • Compile and deploy code to the mainframe with ISPW
  • Automate unit and functional tests with Topaz for Total Test
  • Find out how you can ensure quality while increasing velocity
  • Leverage XebiaLabs’ release orchestration capabilities to build a mainframe
    application release pipeline
  • Automate cross-platform code deployments with the XebiaLabsDevOps Platform
    • See how your applications can span platforms and be managed and deployed together.
      No more silos!
