Mainframe DevOps in Action

A new return from mainframe investments

Customer demand – the IT organization challenge

Modern customers are IT consumers who expect customized content on demand via mobile and web-based services and apps. To maintain market share, IT organizations must adapt to change faster and deliver more frequently – but improving mainframe development practices and increasing testing capacity are big challenges.


Mainframe DevOps – the development challenge

Embracing change can be easier to say than do for mainframe organizations. Resource priority on the mainframe is given to production rather than dev and test. Current tooling, processes and practices may be cumbersome, linear, iterative and slow – but they will also be long-established.


New efficiencies from mainframe environments

By embracing modern development tooling and contemporary testing capability, organizations can achieve DevOps levels of efficiencies and see new returns on mainframe investments. Working collaboratively, teams can deliver more releases faster – and in parallel.


Efficiency, collaboration and flexibility – the pillars of mainframe DevOps

Adopting a DevOps culture and modern tooling can remove bottlenecks and enable parallel development at scale while preserving quality and process integrity and managing mainframe cost.

Case Studies


"Using Enterprise Developer for z Systems in our parallel development processes means that code changes can be released on the mainframe and our Windows environment simultaneously."

Banca Popolare di Sondrio

"The approach proposed by Micro Focus was 20% cheaper than the alternative option of expanding our mainframe capacity. Over three years, we expect to cut development and testing costs by 40% through heightened productivity and by exploiting efficiencies."

Enterprise S.p.A

"Compared to similar development tools in a pure mainframe environment, we felt that Micro Focus Enterprise Developer offered us an efficient debugging environment which helps us speed up the delivery of new modules and provide fixes if we need them."
