Designed to help companies and governments address the mega trends around mobile, analytics and cloud, the new IBM z13 is the first system that is able to process 2.5 billion transactions per day.

Compuware Corporation Releases Topaz

Compuware Corporation released Topaz, a highly innovative solution that empowers developers, data architects and other IT professionals to discover, visualize and work with both mainframe and non-mainframe data in a common, intuitive manner. Introducing Topaz, Compuware's newest and highly innovative solution that empowers IT organizations to preserve and advance their mainframe investments. Topaz's Relationship Visualizer provides a graphical representation of data relationships across the enterprise helping developers, data architects and analysts visually manage vast quantities of data. Topaz addresses a pressing challenge for enterprises that run their businesses on IBM System z: how to effectively leverage their high-value mainframe data as veteran mainframe professionals retire and the responsibility of leveraging that data falls to a new generation of developers and data architects who have little or no expertise in mainframe technologies. Topaz solves this problem by accessing both mainframe and non-mainframe data from its underlying platform dependencies. This abstraction allows developers to quickly and easily perform tasks such as gathering test data from multiple sources. It also simplifies the incorporation of mainframe data into use-cases for Big Data analytics. Key capabilities of Topaz include: Visualization of data relationships across platforms. Developers, data architects, analysts and other IT professionals can visually manage vast quantities of data objects using Topaz's graphical representation of data relationships across the enterprise. A single interface for editing data across file types. With Topaz, developers no longer have to use source-specific tools to browse and edit data. Instead, they can use a single intuitive data editor to manage Oracle, SQL Server, IMS, DB2 and other data across the enterprise. Topaz's Windows-like host to host copy functionality lets users easily drag and drop mainframe files and data from one host to another. This again eliminates the need for mainframe-specific expertise. It is also much faster and easier than traditional transfer methods.
