How can we survive in a digital world without losing our minds?

Insane in the Mainframe?

This is the burning question these days for the great minds of the enterprise regardless of industry! The digital revolution changes the way we do business and enables a world of new possibilities. But it also places unprecedented demands on businesses, on IT departments… and on legacy environments that were never designed to meet these challenges.

Even today, 96% of enterprises involve mainframes in their new business initiatives. Forrester recently worked with Compuware to do some analysis and conduct a survey on How to Improve Application Development and Delivery with DevOps.

90% of IT professionals experience challenges with their mainframe application development and delivery.

Trends in Enterprise DevOps
The results infographic shows some interesting trends and also highlights areas where enterprises can significantly improve by applying DevOps principles and tools.

With 90% of IT professionals reporting that their mainframe organizations are experiencing challenges with application development and delivery, there’s obviously a problem. But is there a cure?

The Cure: Application Release Automation
By orchestrating, automating and synchronizing releases across systems new and old, enterprises get faster and more efficient releases, fewer production failures, sane release windows, and happier teams. Application Release Automation visualizes software pipelines and orchestrates application delivery across any environment. Your complex applications get to market at the speed – and with the quality – the business requires.

How Does It Work?
We’re glad you asked! You’ll find a lot more detail in this DevOps for Mainframes brief. If your software development touches mainframes, you’ll find Application Release Automation to be the missing link for DevOps success.

Special thanks to our friends at Compuware for sharing their survey with us!
