Expedite mainframe application delivery via
continuous integration and testing
Many development shops are exploring modern development practices and delivery techniques to support the demands of delivering applications to market faster with better quality. To help support a modern cross-platform process, IBM has assembled the IBM Continuous Integration Solution for System z (CIz). This solution allows distributed and mainframe organizations to build and test an end-to-end crossplatform application continuously and at low cost.
CIz provides a complete solution for planning, automating, and monitoring application quality and testing, as well as linking testing to build and provisioning of application environments as a seamless process. With more modern test processes, IBM System z shops can get better quality, faster – in some cases compressing the application delivery cycle from months to weeks or days, while reducing the cost of eliciting and repairing defects by up to 90%. In addition, automated mainframe testing can be performed at low cost, using no mainframe development MIPS, by executing the tests on a x86- based z/OS environment.
