DevOps for Mainframes: Essential Processes for Evolution
How can a dinosaur adapt to the modern world? Well, if your ‘dinosaur’ happens to be a mainframe environment, then we suggest you take a good long at DevOps.
The next generation of application delivery and agile methodologies are illuminating the challenges and solutions mainframe engineers face on a daily basis. As Continuous Delivery and DevOps evolve, so too should your mainframe and its processes.
DevOps and the Mainframe
And like every system, mainframes need to be maintained and improved. We are here to tell you that reinforcing a bridge with modern engineering is a lot easier and cost effective than repairing one that has collapsed. Perhaps even more than other systems, mainframes will benefit from DevOps principles that help teams accelerate software delivery while reducing risk.
Today’s digital enterprises need to apply the same Continuous Delivery management practices to mainframe environments as they use for their distributed, web, and cloud platforms.
Whether you are extending the life of your mainframes, migrating your applications to more modern environments, or some combination, XebiaLabs provides the tooling foundation for a successful DevOps initiative. With our repeated innovations in release orchestration and deployment automation, XebiaLabs software bring automation, visibility and control to your mainframes processes. We let you apply the same repeatable, auditable process to all of your releases, whether they be on mainframes, containers, or cloud.
For example, XebiaLabs recently partnered with Compuware to provide cross-platform Continuous Delivery for mainframes and help reinvent mainframe agility.
