BMC provides insights with industry-standard DORA metrics to accelerate the mainframe DevOps journey

New enhancements include Venafi integration for better security controls

HOUSTON, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BMC, a global leader in software solutions for the autonomous digital enterprise, today announced the delivery of the industry-standard DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) metrics KPI dashboard within the BMC Compuware zAdviser solution. The BMC Compuware zAdviser KPI Dashboard for DORA provides insights designed to improve the performance and efficiency of the mainframe development team.

Eighty-eight percent of organizations that choose the mainframe to power their business want to update mainframe applications more frequently based on BMC Mainframe Survey 20211. However, making informed decisions and benchmarking key metrics against industry standards has been a challenge for mainframe DevOps teams as they strive to continuously improve development processes to deliver services more frequently and more efficiently. quickly without compromising quality.

“DevOps teams need metrics to understand their current state and drive continuous improvement, and DORA metrics have become the industry standard,” said Katie Norton, Senior Research Analyst, DevOps at IDC. “The inability to measure DevOps metrics for mainframe applications prevents organizations from realizing the full benefits of DevOps because the slowest link determines the overall speed of delivery. Organizations need to know their metrics and take advantage of the automation to continuously improve them.”

Continuously improve mainframe application development

The BMC Compuware zAdviser KPI Dashboard for DORA Metrics provides objective data to measure mainframe software delivery team performance and drive development deployment frequency, change execution time, mean time to recovery (MTTR) and change failure rate. DevOps teams rely on DORA metrics to assess their performance and find out if they are underperforming or underperforming.

Additionally, the BMC Compuware Abend-AID solution adds automated webhook notifications with diagnostics and root cause analysis to resolve test and production defects faster. These updates improve the availability of existing applications, with the ability to continuously improve the end-user experience by resolving issues and defects in new features more quickly.

Venafi integration automates certificate management for secure mainframe operations

Through a new integration with Venafi, a pioneer in machine identity management, the BMC AMI Enterprise Connector for Venafi solution automates certificate management, ensuring authorized access to mainframe applications to help enterprises protect data. more critical of their environment. The solution protects availability by eliminating certificate-related outages and speeds operations for new and existing applications by automating the key and certificate lifecycle.

“We are continually innovating to deliver solutions that enable DevOps transformation for mainframes,” said John Mckenny, senior vice president and general manager, Intelligent Z Optimization and Transformation at BMC. “These recently released updates in our 31st gives DevOps leaders the ability to react faster to changing customer needs with modern development tools that increase speed, quality, and efficiency.”
