Building Next-Generation Enterprise Applications Webcast Series

Best practices and tools for implementing agile, cloud and mobile solutions on System z


Announcing a webcast series on the latest Rational technology from IBM

Application development was once a disjointed process that posed problems throughout the application lifecycle — from project delays to lack of flexibility, and difficult planning and reporting. In this series of webcasts, we’ll discuss modern development tools and techniques that enable developers in different locations, or on different platforms, to work together collaboratively, and solve these problems through more agile development.

Whether you’re familiar with IBM® Rational® solutions, or you’re considering them, these webcasts will give you valuable information about a smarter approach to application development, testing, deployment and maintenance across the enterprise. You’ll also learn how the Rational approach helps you use fewer IBM System z® resources and tackle enterprise-wide problems throughout the application lifecycle. This webcast series is taught by subject matter experts from IBM Software Group who will share the most significant updates to the Rational product suite so you can:

Agile practices and IBM System z development — A customer case study
Many IT organizations struggle with team collaboration in multi-platform development environments, with siloed teams using different tools across the application lifecycle. Join us for this webcast and learn how you can integrate teams across distributed and mainframe environments. We’ll discuss one customer’s experience in mapping continuous integration concepts used in distributed development to the System z domain, including successes and remaining challenges.
