IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe Edition - May/June 2011 - 33

RDz UT enables developers to have an environment that’s very similar to distributed development, Lindsey says. Developers can integrate, test and debug—on the schedule the development team requires. This continuous integration means problems arise earlier in the process and developers can respond more quickly, thus improving quality and productivity. Additionally, they’re not using any mainframe MIPS. “You’re freeing those MIPS for additional production work,” he says. “It’s a major change in how development for the mainframe can be done.”

The IBM zEnterprise System brings the mainframe and distributed development communities together. Combined with Rational’s multiplatform tool support, both the cost and the risk of building new enterprise services will be greatly reduced. “We’ve been focusing in our tools space around multiplatform IDEs and team environments for a number of years,” Lindsey says. “Now we have a hardware platform that provides all of the management and virtualization advantages the mainframe has always provided, extended to other hardware chip types.” IBM has essentially taken its distributed tooling and extended it to support mainframe development in a first-class manner. He adds, “We’re not trying to change the mainframe, we’re embracing its uniqueness and integrating mainframe technologies with distributed technologies so you can provide—in one tool and one team environment—the end-to-end coverage that most modern enterprise applications require.”
