Improve Mainframe Developer Productivity for System z Software

A generational shift is rapidly occurring in mainframe IT as next-gen developers take over responsibility for preserving and advancing mainframe applications and data. These developers need the best mainframe application development tools available to overcome their lack of familiarity with the platform and become productive quickly.

Mainframe Application Development Tools

Compuware’s mainframe application development tools enable IT organizations to efficiently support critical mainframe workloads with modern capabilities that empower them to productively analyze code and logic; manipulate files and secure data; test and debug programs; and pinpoint problems and resolve application failures.

Program Analysis

  • Accurately understand and manage complex COBOL and PL/I application logic without documentation to improve developer productivity
  • View visualizations for a quick grasp of how a program is constructed
  • Quickly identify code problems then correct them before compiling
  • Gain 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, 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.
