DevOps for Mainframe or the Tale of the Unicorns


No one believed in our fairy tale for a long time. To integrate and automate a development lifecycle for a variety of teams that have been working by their own sets of rules for a decade seemed to be an "everybody talks about it, but no one has seen" type of problem. Armed with a few not so well integrated tools, the team felt an urge to build a one push button CI/CD pipeline for Z applications. This story is about finding a common concept, aligning the efforts of all specialists involved in the development lifecycle, and proving that mainframe can fly. You just need to find a few unicorns.
