BMC announced new capabilities and integrations across its BMC AMI (Automated Mainframe Intelligence) and BMC Compuware portfolios.

These innovations dramatically increase developer productivity, predict service impacts, and help prevent attackers from compromising mainframe environments.

Through the new BMC Compuware ISPW Git integration, mainframe development teams have the flexibility to fully adopt Git or use the ISPW feature-branching sandbox for a fully controlled and isolated environment to create and change code. With a simple right-click, Git users take full advantage of the ISPW mainframe build, test, and deploy capabilities in their CI/CD pipeline.

Using Veracode integration with BMC Compuware Topaz Workbench, organizations can now discover security risks in mainframe applications early in the development lifecycle. The modern integrated development environment (IDE) of the BMC Compuware Topaz Workbench solution edits and debugs code, followed by the Veracode IDE Scan that identifies vulnerabilities in the code written. The Veracode integration allows developers to shift left and scan code for security defects early in the development lifecycle, where it is easier and less costly to fix.

The BMC AMI Enterprise Connector for Illumio product allows customers to achieve a successful Zero Trust implementation by serving as a two-way translator between Illumio's Zero Trust segmentation and the mainframe. In addition, the BMC AMI Command Center for Security system surfaces malicious performance activity for incident responders, reducing operating costs with the ability to automate password resets and offload security monitoring workloads to reduce usage charges. These innovations allow organizations to improve their security posture by preventing compromise at multiple layers to protect against damaging ransomware attacks.

By combining predictive analysis and actionable details into a single interface, the BMC AMI Ops solution now assures operations teams of uninterrupted service by helping them respond to potential problems before they occur. The solution uses artificial intelligence (AI) ready out-of-the-box to begin surfacing the root cause of an issue through an intuitive interface that presents data in a prioritized, at-a-glance view for fast remediation. Smart card and certificate support provide an added level of security without additional complexity.

BMC also recently announced day one support of the latest IBM® Db2® and IBM® z16™ release, working with IBM so that the entire portfolios of the BMC AMI and BMC Compuware mainframe solutions are compatible with both Db2 13 and IBM z16.

"BMC is committed to delivering modern mainframe solutions that empower developers and help enterprises succeed amidst change," said John McKenny, Senior VP and GM, Intelligent Z Optimization and Transformation at BMC. "With our 30th quarterly release, we are helping organizations increase their velocity, quality, and efficiency to outperform the industry with new capabilities across our BMC AMI and BMC Compuware portfolios."

Digital businesses don't invest in monitoring for monitoring's sake. They do it to make the business run better. Every dollar spent on observability — every hour your team spends using monitoring tools or responding to what they reveal — should tie back directly to business outcomes: conversions, revenues, brand equity. If they don't? You might be missing the forest for the trees ...

Today's users want a complete digital experience when dealing with a software product or system. They are not content with the page load speeds or features alone but want the software to perform optimally in an omnichannel environment comprising multiple platforms, browsers, devices, and networks. This calls into question the role of load testing services to check whether the given software under testing can perform optimally when subjected to peak load ...
