2 © 2014 IBM Corporation Rational Development and Test Environment for System z 2 Business constraints with mainframe development today Which limits the amount of System z production workload coming online “My development capacity charge- back is consuming my entire budget. I can’t spend on tools.” “We don’t have the capital budget to obtain more mainframe test resources for my developers. It’s easier and cheaper to get a Windows or Unix box.” “I can’t even work on Mondays! Production workload kicks me off.” “It is difficult for my developers to learn the mainframe. Operations controls can prevent experimentation by developers..” “I can only test my batch applications in offline hours. Online apps consume the 9-5 cycles.” “Operations tell me it will take two months to get my test system allocated.” “The Mainframe isn’t cool anymore. It’s faster and cheaper to develop on a Unix platform.” “I want to try out creating Event Processing and ATOM apps, but my system isn’t scheduled for a CICS update till 2013.”
