Improve Mainframe Developer Productivity for System z Software

A generational shift is rapidly occurring in IT as the Millennial mainframe developers move into the workforce and take over responsibility for preserving and advancing System z software. Millennials need the best mainframe application development tools available for improved developer productivity and help them overcome their lack of familiarity with the platform to develop and maintain System z software on the mainframe.

Mainframe Application Development Tools

Compuware’s mainframe application development tools enable IT organizations to efficiently support critical System z software—from analyzing code and logic, manipulating files and securing data, testing and debugging, to pinpointing problems and resolving application failures, ultimately improving mainframe developer productivity.

Program Analysis

  • Accurately understand and manage complex COBOL and PL/I application logic without documentation to improve developer productivity
  • Visualizations for a quick grasp of how a program is constructed
  • Quickly identify code problems then correct before compiling
  • Intuitive, accurate visibility into the flow of data within COBOL
    or PL/I applications

Debugging, Code Coverage and Analysis

  • Gain an intuitive understanding of application functionality and System z software
  • Resolve production abends without impacting program logic or risking data corruption
  • Decrease batch application deployment time and increase reliability
  • Monitor and control execution with added flexibility

File and Data Management

  • Use mainframe application development tools to quickly master mainframe programs and data
  • Visualize and work with both mainframe and non-mainframe data
  • Use mainframe data for mobile apps, Big Data analytics and testing
  • Quickly master mainframe data and data relationships

Failure Resolution

  • Quickly resolve failures with source-level analysis.
  • Identify errors and verify test results through a directory of all fault activity.
  • View the actual text of a statement causing an error and the contents of its related fields.
  • Clearly display data in storage and data being transferred between programs.
