Elevate Your Focus From the IBM Z to Its Role in End-to-End DevOps Value Streams

Presented by

Ken Gross, Mainline Information Systems & Peter Fandel, Rocket Software

About this talk

The more your systems of engagement rely on the mainframe—and they increasingly do as digital transformation accelerates—the more your mainframe becomes a bottleneck if the culture, processes, and tools surrounding it don’t evolve. Join Ken Gross of Mainline® Information Systems and Peter Fandel of Rocket® Software as they discuss continued advancements in mainframe technology for supporting an enterprise-wide DevOps culture. Hear how evolving traditional mainframe development methodologies and adoption of open source software (OSS) on IBM Z are providing modernization-in-place as a viable initiative and evolving IBM Z from a siloed platform to a transformative one. We’ll discuss: + How shifting focus of platform management to DevOps value stream management can accelerate digital transformation + Why creating a seamless integration of high-velocity toolchains that can transparently connect to mainframe development tools is key to modernizing legacy applications in place + How OSS can neutralize the disparity between seasoned IBM Z and emerging developers + How Rocket Software is delivering commercially supported OSS to IBM Z + How Mainline is helping their IBM Z customers to transition to modern DevOps environments
