“The mainframe platform, and the code that runs on it, is essential to 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.
These companies’ new business initiatives involve the mainframe 90% of the time. DevOps practices must include the mainframe to facilitate speed, quality and productivity across all systems and teams.”– Christopher O’Malley, President and CEO, Compuware
Today’s enterprise business applications are comprised of multiple interrelated components running on mainframes, distributed environments, web and mobile devices. Offering new products and services requires making a complex, coordinated set of changes across all of these systems. But IT struggles to update mainframe components with the same ease as distributed systems.
How can IT teams update all parts together to deliver an entire business-focused application?
It’s a huge challenge to coordinate and synchronize changes across disparate teams and multiple environments spanning mainframes, web and mobile applications.
Marrying the mainframe with modern software delivery methods is key. The same DevOps practices that excel for contemporary applications are even more necessary to manage the complexity of mainframe releases. Without modern processes for both distributed and mainframe applications, IT can’t move quickly enough to meet business demands.
“Automating the mainframe application delivery pipeline reduces risk, cost, and complexity while improving responsiveness to changing customer needs.”– Kurt Bittner and Robert Stroud
