IBM and Microsoft are collaborating to support a hybrid cloud approach to mainframe app modernization.


Accelerate innovation with DevOps for IBM® zSystems®

Want to fight disruption and innovate faster? It’s all possible when development teams make use of agile, modern DevSecOps practices, and deliver applications through an automated and integrated pipeline —the backbone of the value stream. DevOps for IBM zSystems hybrid cloud portfolio offers capabilities and best practices to accelerate delivery of your hybrid cloud solutions with higher quality, while minimizing risk.

The most effective organizations include IBM z/OS® applications alongside cloud-native applications, treating IBM zSystems as just another platform. This approach empowers teams to use a single pipeline to orchestrate the development, integration and deployment of an application across multiple target platforms and environments with the right security rules in place.
