Compuware Corporation Key Developments

Compuware Announces Partnership with ConicIT

Compuware Corporation and ConicIT have announced a partnership to help a new generation of IT ops staff proactively resolve emerging mainframe issues before they impact application service levels. By integrating ConicIT's predictive mainframe analytics and Compuware Strobe's visually intuitive troubleshooting intelligence, the two companies are empowering even IT staff with relatively little hands-on mainframe experience to quickly identify and resolve a full range of application performance problems. This guided, predicted mainframe problem resolution is critical for large enterprises because: Mainframes continue to play a central role in large enterprises as high-performance back-end application and data servers for business-critical, customer-facing mobile and web apps; and enterprise IT organizations are losing their experienced mainframe experts to retirement-which means they have to transition mainframe ops to skilled staff with much less platform-specific experience. ConicIT utilizes machine learning to automatically baseline normal mainframe behavior across thousands of metrics. It then applies advanced algorithms to recognize in real time when those metrics deviate from the baseline. By doing so, ConicIT gives IT staff early warning about potential application issueswithout requiring them to manually set and continually adjust threshold levels for individual performance parameters. Compuware Strobe empowers even mainframe-inexperienced systems staff to act on those alerts by guiding them through an exploration of the problem using a combination of built-in platform intelligence and intuitive visualization The integration between the two solutions allows predictive alerts from ConicIT to automatically launch Strobe with its guided graphical troubleshooting pre-populated to address the appropriate corresponding mainframe conditions.

Compuware Unveils New Mainframe Release Automation Solution

Compuware Corporation has unveiled ISPW Deploy, a mainframe release automation solution that reportedly enables enterprises to bring continuous delivery best practices to its IBM z/OS environments. ISPW Deploy, built on the ISPW technology Compuware acquired January of this year, facilitates faster and more reliable mainframe software deployment through three key sets of capabilities: automation that rapidly moves code through the deployment process, including test staging and approvals, while also providing greatly simplified full or partial rollbacks; visualization that enables DevOps managers to quickly pinpoint deployment issues in order to both solve immediate rollout problems and address persistent bottlenecks in code promotion; and integrations with both third-party solutions and Compuware's own mainframe toolkit that allow IT to build complete SCM-to-production DevOps pipelines and to quickly launch associated remediation support tools if and when deployment issues occur. Compuware is further empowering enterprises to achieve mainframe agility by integrating Compuware ISPW and XebiaLabs' cross-platform continuous delivery solutions.

Compuware Corporation Integrates ISPW with Xebialabs

Compuware Corporation and XebiaLabs have announced integration of ISPW, Compuware's DevOps solution for the mainframe, with XebiaLabs' delivery technology for cross-platform application release orchestration. This integration empowers large enterprises to include their core mainframe applications, data, and computing infrastructure into their broader cross-platform strategy for digital agility. Enterprises using XebiaLabs' solution suite and Compuware ISPW, can now automate and monitor all phases of mainframe DevOps within the same continuous delivery management environment they use for their distributed, web, and cloud platforms. This automation and monitoring includes test/QA, pre-copy staging, and code promotion. Complex multi-tier enterprise applications often include back-end mainframe applications and data. Upgrades and enhancements of these applications therefore require modifications of application code, data interfaces, and other components across multiple platforms simultaneously. Historically, IT organizations have used homegrown scripts to automate certain aspects of mainframe code deployment.
