Compuware is changing the way developers develop. Our products fit into a unified DevOps toolchain enabling cross-platform teams to manage mainframe applications, data and operations with one process, one culture and with leading tools of choice. With a mainstreamed mainframe, the mainframe is just another platform, and any developer can build, analyze, test, deploy and manage COBOL applications with agility, efficiency and precision.
Enterprises can gain tremendous business value from mainframe-resident data, but making use of this key asset is often limited by the need to understand the mysteries of applications developed in CICS and COBOL. Compuware is taking aim at this limitation by more broadly empowering IT professionals to understand and leverage data residing on IBM System z using graphical visualization tools.

Strobe showed us that one SQL statement was eating up a good 60 percent of CPU usage. After we fixed the problem, we noticed more than a 25 percent reduction in CPU usage.

Strobe identifies inefficient processing quickly and presents it simply via iStrobe. It also highlights instances of inefficiency that traditional analysis couldn’t find. In fact, the proof of value exercise alone identified sufficient saving to pay for our use of Strobe and iStrobe.

To me, it’s a no-brainer. If you can improve your performance, you can contain hardware and software costs. Strobe is the best tool on the market to do that, and we hope to have it in our shop for a very long time to come.

Compuware is opening up the mainframe to our non-mainframe staff so we can unleash the full potential value of our mainframe resources.

It typically takes three hours to complete a batch processing task, of which the CPU processing alone takes one and a half hours. With Strobe, however, our programmers have cut batch processing time down by 28.9 percent, with CPU processing time down by 24.57 percent. The benefits of optimization are obvious.

With Topaz Workbench, we can integrate all of our Compuware tools—including Strobe, File-AID, Abend-AID and Xpediter—into a single, seamless collaboration environment. Competing products could not offer this level of integration. Additionally, Compuware products have an easy-to-use interface that works for both mainframe and distributed developers. Based on our careful evaluation, it was clear that Compuware was the partner most committed to addressing future change—as well as offering us the best tools for our immediate needs.
