Mainframe testing: What’s the difference between PopUp Mainframe and physical mainframe?

 

The challenge of testing in the mainframe world

Modern development teams require agile, flexible environments to be able to deliver quick change reliably and enable business competitiveness. But the reality is that fixed, shared mainframe environments cause environment bottlenecks that hinder projects, slow time to market, and result in quality issues and spiralling costs.

The shortage of mainframe test environments is a big blocker to any project across the enterprise which relies on mainframe. Many projects involve a change only in the “front end” but depend on testing the “back end” (i.e. mainframe) even when it is not changing, and suffer from lack of mainframe test environments.

 

How does PopUp MainframeTM solve this problem?

Tame your mainframe testing with Robotic Process Automation

Are your mainframe systems holding you back from delivering change?

Does your mainframe testing snowball – taking more time and more resources each project?

 

Our experience with a wide variety of mainframe clients has shown us that the traditional slow, cumbersome, manual mainframe testing has knock on effects throughout the whole organisation, preventing change from being delivered in a timely manner. Many organisations are hamstrung by the need to test the mainframe systems (the back end) when changing only the front end which means their Agile and DevOps teams are unable to release fast and frequently.
