With millions of lines of code, hundreds of dependencies, and dated documentation, developers can spend weeks or months trying to understand all the changes needed with no guarantee the updates won’t break something.

IBM Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence (ADDI) is an analysis tool that helps you visualize applications, data, and jobs on z/OS®. ADDI enables architects and developers to discover dependencies in a click, make changes with confidence, and keep documentation current and accurate. Use ADDI to enable your IT teams to make informed decisions about modernizing, consolidating, or decommissioning applications.

With ADDI, you can expect developer productivity to increase by 20% to 30%.
