Infrastructure Components With Complex Runtime Dependencies

In today ’s complex and r apid ly e volv i ng world, it ’s of ten impossible to deliver a single system or application that satisfies a constantly changing set of requirements across the entire value chain. Effective integration of disparate IT systems across the enterprise is an increasingly critical success factor; ambiguous bu s i ne s s r e qu i r ement s, inadequate traceability and impossibly complex software architecture can lead to greater risk. “From a business perspective, any security breach or non-compliance can be a liability, including loss of consumer and market confidence,” he says. “From an IT perspective,

Combined Teams, Increased Benefit
Enterprise applications drive the mission-cr it ical core business processes for all customers, regardless of their industry, business size or business model. Disconnected development organizations with separate development processes and tools make it expensive and risky to build new services based on required new business processes. The IBM zEnterprise System brings the mainframe and distributed development communities together, and combined w it h Rat ional’s multiplatform tool support, both the cost and the risk of building new enterprise services will be greatly reduced. “This powerful multiplatform capability will fundamentally change how customers plan and deliver enterprise-application projects,” Sabbah says.

“THERE ARE NOW COMMON SOLUTIONS FOR SOURCE CODE,
change and configuration management that help bridge these previously disparate groups.”— Danny Sabbah
the added complexity means teams responsible for these applications need to collaborate at higher levels than ever before. To effectively manage these risks, organizations must enable a unified collaborative effort spanning the entire enterprise application lifecycle management.” T h i s i n c l u d e s r e q u i r e m e nt s , architecture, development, change management, qualit y management and product and portfolio management. The Rational Jazz collaboration platform and IBM Rational Team the entire application-development and deployment lifecycle across all zEnterprise operating environments. Sabbah explains: It improves the overall productivity and efficiency of the teams responsible for building new Web applications or extending or maintaining existing mainframe or POWER7 processor-based systems. It helps unite the development silos with a common team-based prog ramming and collaborative application lifecycle-management solut ion across all zEnter pr ise environments.
