DevOps in the Multicloud World

Cloud shows endless promise and opportunity for the enterprise, and there is potential to deliver greater value by investing and integrating trusted systems into a cloud strategy. To lead and thrive, organizations must demand higher efficiency and more productivity, while developers need easy and fast solutions for building and managing cloud native applications.

A hybrid multicloud strategy for the enterprise must be underpinned by an ecosystem consisting of tools for continuous modernization of the core systems and assets while basing new development and applications built on the cloud technologies, platforms, and systems for building cloud native using common industry skills and standards.

Join IBM Z experts, clients and ecosystem partners for a deep dive into building and managing hybrid applications for agility in a multicloud world of continuous delivery. Register now to attend live on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Registration is FREE, but space is limited. Reserve your spot now!

Domenico D’Alterio, Offering Manager, Z Automation

One of the major trends in computing in the last decade has been open source. It’s a fundamental shift that has changed how programmers and engineers interact with systems and build the tools that power the world. In order to remain at the forefront of enterprise computing, it is critical for mainframes to embrace open-source frameworks and tooling to broaden the utility of these systems to solve critical business and technical problems. Zowe is playing a key role in driving this adoption, as are open source tools that allow users to program in any language that they want, such as Python. But the most important driver of the open-source mainframe revolution is for all of us to start building open source applications and interfaces on mainframes.
