Mobile to Mainframe: The New Face of Application Development
Nearly every time you use a credit card, check your bank balance, book a flight, track a package or make a purchase, that transaction is inevitably processed by a mainframe. In fact, over 71% of the Fortune 500 relies on the mainframe as the “system of record.” Learn about innovative solutions that facilitate collaboration across development and operations to enable rapid delivery of quality applications that integrate critical mainframe systems with mobile and Web applications to drive competitive advantage in today’s application economy.

As companies race to uncover data insights that will deliver a sustainable competitive advantage, leaders in IT must find and implement measures that better facilitate the process of turning those data insights into consumable digital experiences. For organizations running mainframes, IT leaders must find ways to seamlessly integrate this system of record into their end-to-end application development, test and delivery strategy.
View this session to learn how companies are tackling this challenge, and hear how CA Endevor SCM Integrations for Enterprise DevOps can improve lifecycle integration and modernize development practices while also maintaining core functionality in securing and managing mainframe assets across the software development lifecycle. With out-of-the-box integrations to popular Agile PPM tools, CI/CD & pipeline management tools and plugins to Enterprise GIT repositories, teams can adopt the same modern stacks used for distributed development while continuing to leverage the build & lifecycle automation offered by CA Endevor SCM.
Rose Sakach, Senior Principal Product Manager at CA Technologies
Improving the speed of delivering mainframe assets is possible and it doesn’t mean starting from scratch. As teams embrace and adopt Agile practices, iterative development encourages incremental delivery and you need to be ready to deliver. Your existing CA Endevor SCM processes can be leveraged. Look to merge them with continuous delivery solutions to turbo-charge automation. In this session, you will learn how to normalize delivery processes throughout the life cycle regardless of platform while at the same time manage, track, collaborate, evaluate, audit, and analyze mobile-to-mainframe software deliveries by pairing CA Endevor SCM with CA Continuous Delivery for IBM Z Systems.

Every modern enterprise is concerned about passing their next audit, making compliance an essential part of continued business delivery and growth. The regulatory environment, after all, is an ambiguous and growing part of enterprise security. It requires detailed tracking, monitoring and recording of previous unknowns, plus a new strategy to data and data privacy, and advanced technology to manage regulatory burden. It is difficult to even quantify regulatory readiness—much less achieve it!
Enterprises worldwide are trying to adapt to the regulatory expansion, while still keeping pace with the demands of the marketplace. Join us as we discuss what you can do to protect your business from technical mistakes, regulatory fatigue, and heavy fines.

The mainframe is experiencing a renaissance, as more companies understand and embrace mainframes in their DevOps-enabled environments. Automation is one major area where mainframes can show their mettle in DevOps.
View this session to explore the mainframe automation space, and discuss ways automation can help increase speed and accuracy in managing a company’s systems of record.

Wouldn’t it be great to use familiar tools when you’re needing to integrate mainframe applications into your DevOps pipeline?
Mainframe applications have historically required specialized tools and knowledge to build, maintain and integrate with distributed systems. Existing tool integrations are designed for vendor-specific tool chains and they require a great deal of specialized knowledge and expertise to set up.
CA Technologies engineering decided to break with tradition and utilize advancements on the zOS platform to provide a Command Line Interface that turns mainframe into “just” another deployment target for the DevOps pipeline.
Inclusive of a demo, see how you can integrate, build and test COBOL applications into a modern DevOps pipeline managed by Jenkins Continuous Integration software.

Complying with GDPR is a challenging endeavor, requiring a significant investment of time and resources. The new regulation highlights the need for enforced digital trust, between the business and the consumer, at a time of heightened data risk and customer uncertainty. The mainframe platform today holds 70% of corporate data; and 78% of firms are increasing their use of the platform, with overall usage growing 2.5X in the last 10 years. The mainframe has always been known as the most secure platform; but with the advent of GDPR, data management on the whole must be re-envisioned with the mainframe at the core of your data security strategy, including identification and classification of data exposure risks, enterprise-wide data protection, privileged access management, and real-time tracking, alerting and reporting of suspicious activity.

In much of the DevOps world, “mainframe” brings images to mind of crusty old hardware that is a bottleneck to Agile and DevOps both. But the mainframe and available software have grown right along with the overall market. In this webinar, we will look at what it takes to:
- Integrate the mainframe into the DevOps pipeline
- Improve agility for mainframe applications, and
- Improve performance of those applications that cannot be recompiled because the source is unavailable.
Like any tool, the mainframe can be brought into the DevOps fold, as long as you have a plan and the right tools.

Privileged users on the mainframe have extensive access to the most sensitive resources in the entire data center. And when these privileged identities aren’t managed securely, the business is exposed to a significant security risk—some of which can take months and even years to discover.
Join Mary Ann Furno, Mainframe Security Product Management at CA Technologies to learn how you can combat this risk through privileged access management on the mainframe, so you can:
•Control which users have access to a privileged state, and when.
•Audit all activity performed by privileged users for a complete line of sight.
•Protect your most sensitive data from those who have the highest levels of access to it.
Reduce the risk of insider threats and deliver trust to your customers.

Corporations increasingly rely on their enterprise services bus (ESB) as the communication center to link multiple IT systems, applications and data. Unfortunately, when something goes wrong in the ESB it can have a cascading affect, impacting critical applications. Determining the root cause of the problem is a challenge for most IT organizations, since ESBs serve as a ‘black box’, offering little insight into the issue.
Now, you can assess and resolve performance issues for applications that communicate across your ESB, before they affect your users. Join Richard Nikula, Vice President, Product Development and Support at Nastel, to learn how Nastel AutoPilot for CA Cross-Enterprise APM lets you analyze application behavior in real-time in production, test and development environments.
