A generational shift is rapidly occurring in IT as the next generation of developers is moving into the workforce and taking over responsibility for preserving and advancing System z applications. Millennials need the best tools available to help them overcome their lack of familiarity with the platform. With Compuware, you can leverage existing applications, boost productivity, realize important cost savings and meet the new demands of the digital economy.

Compuware’s Mainframe Solutions work for you during every phase of the application life cycle by enabling development to quickly:

  • Understand code and program logic
  • Visualize data relationships
  • Manipulate files and data
  • Create secure test data
  • Test and debug
  • Pinpoint problems
  • Validate quality
  • Tune applications.

Topaz is Compuware’s newest and highly innovative solution that empowers IT organizations to preserve and advance their mainframe investments. Topaz’s elegant simplicity in design and usability helps a new mainframe development workforce quickly master mainframe programs and data.

The Compuware Workbench provides an alternative modernized user interface to our industry-leading mainframe products: Abend-AID, File-AID, Hiperstation, Xpediter and Strobe. The Workbench supports a transitioning workforce — those soon leaving and those coming in to support business-critical mainframe applications.

Break down IT barriers and solve problems faster

A lack of collaboration and the manual sharing of information can prolong resolution times and increase application backlogs. Compuware helps solve this age-old issue by uniting the tools used to find problems with those used to fix them. Using Strobe or Abend-AID, Operations and QA teams can quickly pinpoint the root cause of a mainframe application performance problem or exception. Operations will initiate a “fix request” right from their dashboard, which automatically gathers the contextual insights about the issue. The request is then sent to Development where they will get a jump-start on re-creating, debugging and ultimately fixing the problem.
