Is it a constant struggle to keep strategic goals, objectives, projects connected and aligned? Traditional software development methods don’t help. Programmers can work separately for days or even weeks on the same code without realizing how many conflicts (and perhaps bugs) they are generating. Because they are producing robust code with each iteration, agile teams find that they are slowed down by the long resolution and debugging sessions that occur at the end of long integration cycles. For these reasons, agile teams often choose to use continuous integration.
Join us for this complimentary webcast as we discuss an IBM customer’s experience in mapping continuous integration concepts used in distributed development to the IBM® System z® domain – the successes and the remaining challenges. You’ll learn how the IBM Continuous Integration Solution for System z enables distributed and mainframe teams to build and test an end-to-end, cross-platform application continuously and at low-cost. We’ll also discuss how it can help manage change and address persistent bottlenecks during testing.
Join us after the webcast for a live question-and-answer session. This webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
