To successfully compete in a global marketplace where digital speed and excellence are essential, large enterprises must bring agile best practices to their mainframe application dev/test efforts.
Most enterprises can’t achieve this objective due to an outdated source code management (SCM) system that doesn’t support essential agile practices such as parallel work and rapid code promotion.
An agile and DevOps-enabling solution
Compuware has announced the acquisition of the assets associated with Itegrations’s source code management (SCM) migration practice and methodology. This acquisition will enable Compuware customers to migrate their SCM systems from agile-averse products to ISPW, Compuware’s agile and DevOps-enabling cross-platform SCM solution.
“To succeed in the digital economy, large enterprises must move their mainframe application development to an agile model—and we believe SCM is at the heart of this transformation,” said Itegrations CEO and founder François Dansereau. “Compuware is optimally positioned to deliver mainframe SCM migration capabilities where they can have the biggest positive impact for the most customers.”
Large enterprises are under pressure to update their mainframe application development, test/QA and deployment processes in order to successfully compete in a global marketplace where digital speed and excellence are essential. Unfortunately, most enterprises can’t achieve this objective because they remain tied to an outdated mainframe SCM system that doesn’t support essential agile practices such as parallel work and rapid code promotion.
Overcome the typical barriers
Despite the critical importance of SCM migration, CIOs often perceive the prospect of such a project as risky, difficult, costly and/or time-consuming. Enterprises have massive amounts of code in their SCM systems—and typically have numerous active development projects in the works that cannot be disrupted. Enterprises also lack both in-house expertise in SCM migration and headcount to spare for large migration projects.
Recognising this central obstacle to customers’ mainframe modernisation efforts – and in direct response to many customers’ requests for an easier way to migrate to its ISPW SCM solution – Compuware acquired the selected assets of Itegrations that will enable Compuware customers to engage with a skilled team of experts in SCM migration with a proven methodology, state-of-the-art migration tools and a long history of migration success.
