Struggling to Incorporate the Mainframe Into Your Agile Development Process?

< 1 minute read

Digital business is driving a new standard for continually new and updated applications that are available anytime – and anywhere – the business demands. By 2023, the application development market will be over $9B! (Application Development Market Research Report- Forecast till 2023, 2019)

To deliver these apps at the speed the market requires, developers have adopted agile development processes that seem to be at odds with the core values of stability, reliability, and availability that the mainframe teams have traditionally been entrusted with providing.

BMC and IBM Systems Media will host an informative webinar on Wednesday, May 15 at 1:00 pm ET/12:00 noon CT designed to help you successfully deliver to a new standard for speed and agility in your mainframe environment. John Barry, Principal Product Manager at BMC Software, will cover how you can deliver Db2 on z/OS applications faster, at higher quality and lower costs with automated mainframe intelligence (AMI). Register now.

During this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Close the velocity gap by integrating your mainframe into your agile processes
  • Allow self-service change management for developers without increasing risk
  • Enforce best practices for each mainframe test and production system

Explore with BMC how to seamlessly integrate Db2 on z/OS into your agile development process to allow self-service change management to application developers, or to simply enforce best practices for each test and prod system and streamline the database change processes. Why should the agile development revolution leave your mainframe behind?
