Today, the mainframe is our foundation where our customer data lives. Interfacing with the mainframe is how our distributed systems provide services to our customers, regardless of the channel used (Mobile, User Interface, etc). Until an alternative cost-efficient technology is identified that has the processing power of the mainframe, our focus will remain on modernization. Our focus is to utilize tools and technology that allow for more automation, real-time services, and communication with our distributed products in a way that reduces cost and increases efficiency.
We use it for change management and source control.
In 2018, we executed a migration from an LCM product (ASG: Allen Software Group company) to an ISPW in order to manage our mainframe programs (mostly Cobol, few C, and ASM). * We use ISPW for SCM and ALM, built and deployed from the development environment to the production environment on IBM z/OS. * ISPW can be used on both Eclipse Neon 4.6.3 and ISPF panels. * In our company, developers are using ISPW in Eclipse to have the benefit of an IDE and to use others plugins from Compuware Topaz solution or other providers we have. * ISPW administrators and production teams use ISPW on both Eclipse and ISPF panels depending on the tasks they have to manage (a part of the administrative task is not available in Eclipse plugin).
