IBM Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence details
Business rule discovery
Business rules are generally hidden in existing operational systems applications, but now you can quickly find business rules, code snippets and APIs so that you can leverage them to support your business processes.
Deep visual analysis of application logic and impact of change
Use accurate code analysis to see relationships between applications and correlate run-time metrics with static code to determine the impact of changes. Apply a range of analyses and visual tools, including data flow and where-used analysis; program control flow analysis; source code complexity analysis; impact analysis; inventory of online and batch applications; vast coverage of databases; and batch control flow visualization.
Quickly identify redundant test cases and expose the areas of code not yet tested, the most or least executed, and the lowest performing. Detect performance issues earlier in the cycle and correlate runtime data and test coverage.
Root cause analysis
Identify peaks in slow response time of a specific transaction in a graph and then visually compare them to IBM Db2® and File I/O wait time. Use the transaction composition map of a transaction that performs poorly and identify program artifacts that call the same data source(s) and have changed recently.
Cognitive user guidance
Visualize data points that adversely contribute to the worsening response time of key transactions, identify previously undiscovered poor-performing transactions and problematic artifacts, see ranked results to evaluate risky program artifacts in a problematic transaction, and visualize artifact dependencies and pin point problematic artifacts, allowing you to plan and make artifact changes faster.
Risk anticipation and minimization
Detect performance and resource issues throughout the development lifecycle by accessing previously hidden Ops data. Access a view of the business-critical applications based on the usage frequency and adjust the regression testing focus to anticipate and minimize the risk of breaks in production.
Project health visibility
Identify business-critical programs and examine code coverage, performance, complexity and maintainability. Access a view of overall project health and initiate work to reduce technical debt and complexity. Understand project metrics and trends—the number of lines, dead code, and more.
Discover potential APIs for digital transformation
Rapidly identify API candidates and expose them as RESTful APIs with z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition. Safeguard services by determining if APIs could be impacted by an application change.
