About this talk

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.
