Accelerate the value from your mainframe applications

IBM® Application Discovery technology makes it faster and easier for developers to understand and develop applications in a DevOps environment. Developers can now safely and rapidly uncover hidden assets and potential issues inside billions of lines of existing application code residing on IBM Z® systems to help accelerate hybrid cloud adoption. It supplies graphical visualizations and reports on applications and features a dashboard with multiple categories of application metrics. In addition, it integrates with third-party source code and tooling to provide application infrastructure mapping and automatic repository updates.


Evaluate application source code by providing an accurate and current view of inventory, structure, interdependencies, complexity, quality, coding standards and compliance.


Identify and execute application source code improvements to drive a higher level of quality. Analyze data to simplify, completely transform or replace applications with ease.


Collect and correlate key metrics about the overall quality of the application portfolio on an ongoing basis so that improvement can be tracked over time.
