Just like MTV made it possible for Gen Xers to watch a continuous stream of their favorite music videos or gain instant access to historic events like the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, we want continuous integration to give us a constant feed of development progress on the mainframe.
Finding inefficiencies in your applications to save CPU is something you should already be doing, especially when the mainframe is experiencing even more activity from digital engagement.
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.

Are you working with the best mainframe partner for the next 50 years or a mainframe software pretender with a penchant for price increases and locking customers into the past?
Some sages, particularly in the distributed arena, like to say that capacity planning isn’t necessary anymore. Hardware is cheaper and virtualization makes better use of resources. But the sages are wrong!
Agile and CX are becoming inseparable as the digital economy advances. Organizations must be capable of developing and delivering solutions to solve immediate customer needs, and this is only achievable through the binding of Agile and CX.
To attract millennials to the mainframe, it’s time to provide them with modern mainframe development tools like those they love to use in distributed development.
Incremental development will soon be required for federal departments and agencies to receive adequate funding for projects, per the MGT Act if it is passed. Considering that, federal IT should follow these steps to becoming Agile.
Compare, Search and Sort are base capabilities every programmer needs in their Swiss Army knife of development skills. Let’s take a closer look at how to get the most out of comparing data, specifically with Compuware File-AID Compare in Topaz.
The time and cost of migrating off the mainframe isn’t economically viable, but modernizing the mainframe with new tools and processes is. It’s time to stop fantasizing about moving off the mainframe and start modernizing, or at least fix, your COBOL programs instead.
Gen Z mainframe developers will arrive with their own generational idiosyncrasies, à la baby boomers, Gen Xers and millennials before them. It’s the nature of the workplace, and mainframe shops should be prepared to adapt.
After you engage in the Agile process, over time you realize the productivity benefits. After doing Agile for some time on the job, it hit me: I’ve already been doing Agile for quite a while outside of work.
