While becoming Agile seems like a radical, sweeping shift for a mainframe company to make, it’s historically justified as a powerful method that generates more success because of its incremental framework.
As we look ahead to our next Customer Advisory Council (CAC) in February, now is the perfect time to discuss the importance the CAC and why we do it. First and foremost, the CAC is advantageous for our customers.
Part two of this series will walk you through the benefits of your setup choices (whether you gave them careful consideration or took the defaults), and help you understand the Summary and Detail displays that show the compare output.
While linear regression may work for CPU busy functions from 20-80%, it doesn’t help much at either end of the utilization graph, where you want to know the impact of transaction volume or batch workload changes.
BMC's new survey gives a thorough explanation for why the mainframe plays a key role in digital transformation and should be expected to experience longevity in the enterprise IT architecture.
In a recent radio report, mainframes were characterized as old, inflexible and difficult to secure. In fact, modern mainframes are cutting-edge machines with outstanding reliability and security features.
You can’t accelerate and scale DevOps unless you also accelerate and scale DevOps test data delivery. That’s why every DevOps leader should take a close look at Compuware’s Test Data Privacy solution.
By integrating with this caliber of a DevOps solution, Compuware is making it easier than ever to incorporate the mainframe into your enterprise-DevOps strategy.
