In the below posts, discover what it means for an organization to maintain high code quality on the mainframe.
An initial understanding of code quality might begin with the idea that a mainframe application or software functions and performs as expected, and that it does so smoothly, efficiently, economically and with minimal issues or impediments caused by things like bugs. But quality is far more complex than this simplified overview of the term. Another factor helping determine the level of quality in code is how closely it aligns with customer expectations. Therefore, achieving high quality should at least be considered from the perspective of how clean it is–how debugged and deficiency free it is–and how well meets the demands of your customers.
To improve code quality, your organization should be employing solutions to keep code clean and using metrics to measure performance. Consider reading up on ways to keep your code clean as well as ensure you’re delivering features and functionality your customers desire.
