Overview
Bottom rule

Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence helps enterprise development teams understand application interdependencies, complexity, and quality across platforms, environments, and languages.

As organizations embrace a digital transformation and enter the API economy, the ability to connect to business-critical applications that run on z Systems™ with mobile and cloud applications to better engage with clients is essential. Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence provides a key step in this evolution by enabling enterprises to better understand their existing application assets. For example, the offering can alert developers to the number of sections of code that access a particular entity, such as a database table, so they can easily check them to see if updates are needed. Without these advanced analytics, developers would need to manually check thousands or millions of lines of code in hopes that they would find the ones that need to be changed. This would greatly increase the risk of error.

The automated discovery and source code analysis of Application Discovery and Deliver Inteligence provides:

  • Inventory of online and batch applications
  • Batch control flow visualization
  • Data flow and where used analysis
  • Program control flow analysis
  • Source code complexity analysis
  • Impact analysis
  • Code quality management

Description
Bottom rule

Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence V5.0 automates the discovery and collection of application component information and dependencies. It interacts with external platforms to discover, gather, and federate infrastructure and application Configuration Items (CIs) and provide the following features:

  • Configuration Management Database (CMDB). Collects CMDB information from z/OS®.
  • Source Code Management (SCM) Integration. Agents provide connectivity with SCM systems to deliver source code members for analysis synchronized with the development, promote and release cycle.
  • Batch scheduler integration. Agents provide integration with batch schedulers to help understand and quickly identify and rectify problems, which could lead to overnight batch driven inconsistencies in data.

Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence operates across multiple languages and environments and parses different application component types, such as source code, operating systems scripts, include files, screen maps, transactions, and messaging system configuration data. It can then visualize application's internal structure and dependencies. Using rich, static code analysis functionality, Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence gives users the opportunity to select and configure their own analysis starting point and then navigate across or drill down as dictated by the development, maintenance, or support task at hand. Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence provides the following analysis and reporting:

  • Static code analysis.  In depth analysis of underlying application source code assist application designers and developers in understanding application control flow, interdependencies and source code structure to accurately effect code changes.
  • Impact analysis. Supports accurate identification and quantification of the impact of required changes on inter-dependent applications to drive accurate estimates of cost, timescales and resources.
  • Cross application analysis. Analyzing and understanding end-to-end business processes that span multiple applications, languages, platforms, and environments to help identify opportunities for improvement (common services and pinpoint application boundaries).
  • Root cause analysis. Accurate, up-to-date analysis assists in fast, efficient assessment of application problems and errors provide input to solutions for resolution within defined and agreed-to service levels.
  • Batch flow analysis.  In depth analysis of batch flow structures:
    • How jobs are scheduled and sequenced
    • Interdependencies to help keep batch schedules under control and quickly identify and rectify problems that could lead to overnight batch-driven inconsistencies in data

  • Coding standards. Ensure coding standards are met in application source code is a key factor in driving consistent quality making applications easier and cheaper to maintain.
  • Reporting. Supports integrated, metric-driven (industry-standard and configurable) documenting complexity and other key factors about the selected source code.

Virtual Server

Virtual Server is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. A virtual server is either a virtual computer created by partitioning the resources available to a physical server or an unpartitioned physical server. Licensee must obtain Virtual Server entitlements for each virtual server made available to the Program, regardless of the number of processor cores in the virtual server or the number of copies of the Program on the virtual server.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the Program. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the Program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the Program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies: Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the Program or that is otherwise managed by the Program is considered a separate User of the Program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Floating User

Floating User is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Floating User is a person who is accessing the Program at any particular point in time. An Install is an installed copy of the Program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but if the Floating User simultaneously accesses more than one Install of the Program, the Floating User requires a separate entitlement for each such Install. Licensee must obtain separate entitlements for each Floating User simultaneously accessing the Program on each Install in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, through a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Note : Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures or applications from the Program or that is otherwise managed by the Program is considered a separate User of the Program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
