Shift Left and Get Agile on the Mainframe


Presentation

This is the opening Application Development stream.  A short welcome followed by the opening session.

Traditional mainframe application development faces many challenges in today's market, and struggles to become agile. Two main reasons for these difficulties are 1. ) lack of local test environments and 2.) lack of test (automation) tools for the mainframe. Today's mainframe application development is different. Today, it's possible to shift left, become agile, and speed up development time. In this presentation, we will focus on using local test environments and test automation in DevOps. We will discuss how you can use zD&T to create local test environments for project teams, and share customer experiences of implementing zD&T and Tester to write, execute and automate unit and integration tests of mainframe applications.
