Rapid delivery of core business systems needs to be enterprise-wide, and DevOps is now mainstream, even on the mainframe. Your mainframe DevOps tool chain needs to integrate and communicate all aspects of the delivery lifecycle. Using REST-based APIs, ChangeMan ZMF can drive your mainframe deliveries faster than ever, while retaining rock-solid reliability and visibility.
Join our AMC Tech Tips series to see how hooking up mainframe DevOps delivery tooling is easier, and more productive than ever, using Micro Focus ChangeMan ZMF 8.2.2.
When it comes to delivering access to mainframe applications, organizations are faced with new and ever-evolving challenges. These challenges include access control (authentication and authorization), data privacy, endpoint management, and regulatory compliance audits.
And, even though organizations address these challenges at the enterprise level, the mainframe is often forgotten. This happens because (1) mainframe systems are viewed as secure because they are running in a private network, isolated from the public environment, and (2) security organizations do not often know how to extend enterprise security controls to the mainframe.
This webinar will provide valuable insights into how organizations can deliver access to the mainframe while meeting security, privacy, regulatory, and other demands that modern technologies present.

The application development language, COBOL, turns 60 this year. September 1959 saw the first mention of the technical acronym “COBOL”, which was then adopted as the name for the
language being specified and developed.
The session will explore, and celebrate, the language’s continued relevance, use cases and prevalence. A number of defining characteristics have ensured COBOL remains in widespread usage, and we will ask ourselves the question—why not another 60 years? Join the COBOL community to celebrate, and look forward!

DevOps aims to support IT’s need to build better quality software, much faster and more frequently. Today’s complex mainframe applications, specialized technical teams and sophisticated software change management procedures, are difficult to change quickly without risk. And that’s a problem, because in the mainframe world, speed without certainty is ‘failure’.
Building Enterprise-grade DevOps practices in support of mainframe systems needs careful thought. What better then, than to take a checklist of what works, and what doesn’t, based on real industry stories. We will discuss the customer challenge, look at the objectives of the change, and reveal the needed technology solution to build a secure and scalable mainframe DevOps process.
At the heart of the digital business, the mainframe needs to do so much more than ever before. Connecting, changing and improving to support complex requirements is fraught with challenges and risks. Worse still, IT needs to deliver changes yesterday!
How best to approach today's requirements and deliver mainframe-based solutions faster? Our webinar will outline some practical stories from real organizations and how they have employed various modernization strategies to deliver business value, fast.
