BMC boosts developer confidence

Software developers are set to get a boost when refactoring mainframe code after BMC (, a global leader in software solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, announces two new product innovations, BMC AMI DevX Code Insights and BMC AMI zAdviser Enterprise.

With the BMC AMI DevX Code Insights solution, next-generation developers can use automated intelligence to understand and break apart monolithic mainframe programs for faster changes to complex code allowing them to understand how the application works in real time with runtime visualization, break apart monolithic programs into smaller, more manageable subprograms to isolate business logic and enable APIs; quickly remove dead code; and analyse data flow and debug code.

BMC’s AMI zAdviser Enterprise solution drives continuous improvement using AI/ML to accelerate the pace of mainframe DevOps transformation.  This gives developers valuable insights into the adoption of DevOps tools; improves debugging and testing; monitors critical metrics, including lead time for change, change failure rate, deployment frequency, and mean time to restore service; and assists developers in upholding code quality by detecting abnormal levels of regressions in application code.

“Developers often fear making changes to monolithic mainframe applications, because they lack the understanding of how these large, complex programs work. Refactoring the code into smaller, callable modules provides greater responsiveness to make the changes businesses demand,” explains Katie Norton, Senior Research Analyst, DevOps and DevSecOps, IDC.  “With the ability to automatically and intelligently visualise and refactor code, developers can focus on releasing high-quality mainframe applications faster to innovate and accelerate their mainframe transformations.”
“BMC is empowering the next generation of developers and accelerating innovation for organisations,” adds John McKenny, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intelligent Z Optimization and Transformation, BMC.  “BMC AMI DevX Code Insights and BMC AMI zAdviser Enterprise make the mainframe as approachable as any other platform, welcoming in a new era of fast and fearless mainframe application development.”
