How Mainframe Customers Should Evaluate Potential Change Management Solutions

As the pace of digital transformation continues to accelerate, the need to develop mission-critical systems that can enable agility has become more apparent. Organizations, especially those that use mainframe technologies, are under a lot of pressure to find change management solutions that can enable visibility and agility across the entire system.

One key discipline often overlooked is ensuring the reliability of systems through a robust methodology for change tracking in real-time, on a system-wide scale. In mainframe deployments, the need to ensure the software configuration change tracking at all levels, including system libraries across all logical partitions in a mainframe sysplex deployment, is vital to ensure successful change implementation, recoverability, and the ability to report on system changes.

In our latest research brief, How Mainframe Customers Should Evaluate Potential Change Management Solutions — done in partnership with IBM and 21st Century — we explore what mainframe customers need to evaluate as they look for change management solutions for their mission-critical systems.
