We would like you to meet Sandy, the DevOps brain! Sandy will guide you along your quest to bring DevOps to the mainframe!
The Mainframe is at the heart of many organisations. It is essential for ensuring an effective front-end service layer. However, the entire service layer, and the batch systems, need to be managed in a more agile way.
Whilst software on the mainframe has some level of automated promotions and releases, most of the tools work in an autonomous way and are not integrated with each other. This leaves many areas requiring manual processes with the potential of lengthy release processes and lengthy and expensive quality assurance processes.
Other platforms embraced DevOps to innovate and bring changes to market more quickly. However, DevOps is still relatively new in the mainframe ecosystem. Traditionally, mainframes have limited release cycles, limited automation capabilities, and limits on build and deployment.
