To compete in fast-moving digital markets, enterprises must adopt
DevOps on the mainframe and do it quickly. According to Forrester, 72%
of large enterprises' new digital initiatives depend on mainframe code,
(bit.ly/2MpfSKG). Without DevOps-and associated Agile best practices-
delivery on these digital initiatives will simply be too slow and infrequent
to keep pace with relentlessly escalating customer expectations.
To successfully drive the adoption of DevOps on the mainframe, however, IT leaders need the right metrics. Good metrics ensure that decisions
are fact-based, that changes in processes and tooling yield quantifiable
results and that mistakes can be quickly corrected. A robust set of key
performance indicators (KPIs) around quality, velocity and efficiency can
continuously challenge and nudge teams to seek and embrace new methods to continuously improve. Developers, in particular, can be coached
like high-performance athletes based on the data accrued, ensuring their
continued success-and, therefore, an organization's success.
Research indicates, however, that many enterprises still fail to measure
software delivery on the mainframe with the right KPIs. Quality metrics
such as number of defects and mean time to defect resolution remain
supreme. And that's understandable-because the stability and reliability
of mainframe applications are central to the platform's long-established
value proposition.
But quality alone is not enough to win. Enterprise IT leaders must measure two other critical attributes of modern software delivery: velocity and
efficiency.
Speed is perhaps the single greatest deficit in mainframe software delivery. Slow delivery of new mainframe-dependent digital capabilities may,
in fact, be the greatest threat to large enterprises as they compete against
market disruptors. That's why mainframe DevOps leaders must elevate
velocity KPIs.
With more work to do and fewer people to do it, mainframe leaders
must also drive quantifiable increases in DevOps efficiency. The good
news is that growing opportunities exist to bring automation into the
mainframe DevOps pipeline in areas such as unit testing, and integration with non-mainframe/cross-platform solutions such as Jenkins,
SonarSource and XebiaLabs.
Never has the need for continuous improvement in software delivery
velocity, quality and efficiency been so critical to an organization's ability
to compete in this age of software. Big doesn't beat small. Fast beats big.
If you aren't investing in ways to accelerate mainframe software development and delivery, then you'll begin to fall behind the market disruptors
who are. ■
