BMC, a software solutions provider for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, announced new capabilities and integrations across its BMC AMI (Automated Mainframe Intelligence) and BMC Compuware portfolios to accelerate software delivery with greater data visibility and context-based insights across their IT environments.
According to the company, its Helix Discovery solution now automatically maps and visualises service dependencies across mainframe and distributed environments using application network connection details sent from the BMC AMI Ops product. This allows users to prioritise problems according to the possible business impact.
The new BMC AMI Ops integration with Splunk, coupled with the BMC AMI Security integration, allows an extensive collection of enriched security data, operations, and performance information to be visible to security and operations teams. This shared visibility, together with greater frame of reference, enables teams to surface and investigate threats that might have otherwise gone undetected before they impact business services.
According to a Forrester study, “the ability to capture software development KPIs has become an important component to a development team’s modernisation efforts.” To succeed in digital transformation, it is critical to select modern mainframe development tools with the ability to capture meaningful process metrics, such as quality, velocity, and efficiency.
The company said it observed development managers often lack insight into developers’ behaviors, processes, and adoption, restricting their ability to guide their teams.
The BMC Compuware zAdviser solution provides mainframe DevOps analytics for organisations that develop mainframe code. It is also the only solution that captures data on how mainframe developers develop their code and what features and functions they are employing during different software development life cycle stages.
With the BMC Compuware zAdviser analytics and the new KPI dashboards for ISPW, Topaz, and Topaz Total Test, development teams can optimise the customer experience through new KPI metrics.
These metrics also give development managers the visibility and actionable insights to reduce defects, accelerate the software delivery process, and drive DevOps transformation with modern development tools.
