Develop on x86 platforms, rather than relying on mainframe hardware and staff, to help build and test at virtually any time and without impacting shared mainframe environments.
Gain the cost advantages of a distributed development and test system while freeing up mainframe capacity for more valuable production workload.
Use actual z/OS middleware to reduce retesting and modifications. Support agile development to accelerate delivery of new workloads spanning multiple subsystems.
Use a preconfigured package of IBM z Systems software that includes z/OS and middleware, such as CICS®, IMS™ and DB2®, including z/OS components of multiple DevOps for Enterprise Systems tools.
Conduct z Systems education virtually any time and anywhere by using Intel and Intel-compatible platforms—and experiment without fear of harming mainframe production environments.
