How to call external APIs from your mainframe

Mainframe applications frequently need to initiate a connection to other systems to gather more data or complete a transaction. Traditionally, APIs are challenging for mainframes to access due to differences in languages and data formats.

In this 30 minute webinar, we will show an approach that allows mainframe applications to act as first class citizens in the digital strategy and enable your company to truly integrate your core and digital assets.

What you will learn:
●How to automatically generate COBOL code that calls external APIs
●How bypassing middleware simplifies access to the APIs
●Why you don’t need to build your own data translation layers

  • How to use Compuware Topaz to build integrations to digital systems 10X faster Nov 10 2020 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Martin Bakal, Zeev Avidan, Rick Slade
    Mainframe development teams want to support digital teams by giving access to applications and assets -- they just need an effective way from inside the tools they currently use. This is why Compuware and OpenLegacy provide mainframe integration tools as part of the Topaz IDE. In this discussion, you will learn:

    - How to quickly generate APIs that access mainframe assets directly from Topaz
    - How you can avoid creating facades and bypass the ESB
    - How to test the legacy and digital systems together using Topaz
    - How automatically generated COBOL code allows access to digital systems
  • How to create a 360 degree view of your customers from multiple core systems Recorded: Jul 8 2020 33 mins
    Martin Bakal, Product Evangelist, OpenLegacy and Jorge Morlett, Software Architect, OpenLegacy
    In order to compete, companies need to integrate business logic and data from many applications. Frequently this includes call center data on one mainframe integrating with claims processing on another. Digital applications need access to all of the data in order to give a 360 degree view of the customer.

    In this 30 minute webinar, we will show how to bring all of this logic and data together in real-time so you can support your customers better.

    What you will learn:
    ●Simple methods to expose APIs from core transactions
    ●How to simply and quickly expose complex data types
    ●Scalable methods for delivering business logic to the digital world
  • How to eliminate complexity when exposing VSAM files Recorded: Jun 24 2020 31 mins
    Martin Bakal, Product Evangelist, OpenLegacy and Jorge Morlett, Software Architect, OpenLegacy
    VSAM files are easy for Cobol applications to access. However, it’s challenging for digital applications to access VSAM files because they need to parse Cobol’s complex data structures. This challenge has become more severe due to critical issues, such as the GDPR and CCPA (California) data privacy legislation.

    In this 30 minute webinar, we will demonstrate some simple steps to expose VSAM files without the complexity of building a facade or changing any CICS applications.

    What you will learn:
    ●Ways to access VSAM files in real-time
    ●How to automate the parsing of metadata to make access easier
    ●Scalable methods for delivering VSAM data to the digital world
  • How to Perfect Your Legacy Strategy Recorded: Jun 17 2020 31 mins
    Zeev Avidan - CPO OpenLegacy, Yoav Einav - VP Product GigaSpaces
    Are you wondering how you can address today's modern business demands and efficiently leverage your mainframe infrastructure?

    The growing amount of data and the need to maintain the competitive edge with optimized business operations and modern customer centric services are becoming constant challenges for enterprises that require the ability to process, analyze, visualize and manage their data in a scalable and agile manner.

    Attend this panel discussion to hear from data and analytics technology experts OpenLegacy and GigaSpaces about how to perfect your legacy strategy.

    What you will learn:

    - How to modernize legacy stacks with microservices, event-driven fast analytics, Spark and BI.

  • How to setup an API Factory for legacy assets Recorded: Jun 10 2020 31 mins
    Martin Bakal, Product Evangelist, OpenLegacy and Jorge Morlett, Software Architect, OpenLegacy
    Companies need a highly refined process to churn out large volumes of standardized APIs. The process needs to be consistent, fast and cost-effective even while exposing data from legacy systems. Companies also require complete control over the integrations and the ability to make sure they meet corporate standards.

    In this 30 minute webinar we will show how to use templates and code generation to create consistent APIs.

    What you will learn:
    ●How to automatically parse most types of core assets
    ●How to use templates to meet corporate coding standard for generated code
    ●Scalable methods for delivering business logic to the digital world
