Improve developer productivity

Developer productivity can increase by over 35% by off-loading the development environment of a mainframe application to Windows. This is achieved by giving developers access to far greater processing power than is usually available to development processes in mainframe environments. These productivity improvements deliver additional business benefits: Time-to-market can be reduced, development costs are reduced and resources can be freed for more innovative developments which increase competitiveness.

Resources for innovation

By increasing development productivity, more can be achieved with less. As a result, a higher percentage of development resources can be focused on more innovative projects rather than maintaining existing applications.

Address mainframe skills shortages

Migrating development environments off the mainframe removes the risk of shrinking numbers of mainframe programmers.

Improves developer productivity through use of modern processors, graphical interfaces and Windows operating platform.

Application development lifecycle support on the desktop

Improves both developer productivity and product quality.

Application modernization through SOA

Improves developer productivity through easier sharing of development resources.

Host connectivity

Improves development lifecycles.
