Mainframe Resurgence Spurs Devops Adoption

This paper reviews key findings from global primary research surveys focused on understanding the current development, testing, and operational processes for mainframe applications. A total of 511 qualified participants completed the survey. All participants had direct mainframe responsibilities across all seniority levels.

The research also investigated the state of adoption of DevOps, CI/CD, and continuous testing for teams working with mainframe applications. The research focused on understanding the key hurdles companies experience when adopting DevOps for the mainframe, and which DevOps processes and toolsets were actually being used today in mainframe software development lifecycles.
