  • Mainframe Infrastructure Sessions: Room D first floor

    Session Evaluation

    Abstract

    A successful DevOps transformation involves a balancing act between agility, cost, and innovation. Thus, a key question to answer is: How do I produce development environments quickly, while minimizing the operational costs to provide them. Imagine tapping into your current Intel based cloud to produce flexible development environments for your z/OS developers, where all application specific datasets can be extracted intelligently from Z, so they can code, update various applications and test out the effects in a safe environment. IBM ZDevelopment and Test Environment (ZD&T) can enable this capability. This session will discuss how environments can be built and developers can use those environments to deliver a change to QA. 

  • Application Development Session: Room B first floor

    Session Evaluation

    Abstract 

    Developers need to be able to easily iterate in a personal code, build, and unit test loop and then commit their code to the shared, automated application delivery pipeline. This quick iteration requires a modern development environment. This session explores IBM's flexible set of z/OS development environments. These range from Z Open Development, the newest offering, targeted for integration with an open source DevOps tool chain all the way to Application Delivery Foundation for z Systems, a suite of integrated, full-feature tools that extends IDE capabilities with abend analysis, file management, and application performance analysis.
