The BMC AMI Data Management for Db2 solutions powered by intelligent
automation provide world-class data management that enable 24/7 availability,
foster greater resiliency, and drive the agility needed to provide a
transcendent customer experience. BMC's data shows that BMC AMI Data Management
for Db2 solutions help customers to:
Improve time to recover data by up to 80% with BMC AMI Recovery for Db2, which also has integrations with BMC AMI Command Center for Db2 to ensure business resiliency and compliance.
Continually improve the response time of applications with BMC AMI Performance for Db2 SQL, providing a lightweight, real-time tuning tool that offers actionable information.
Boost the speed of test data refresh by up to 85% with BMC AMI Load for Db2 and BMC AMI Unload for Db2, increasing development velocity.
Increase agility and velocity of the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines through automating database changes via integrations with Jenkins and soon with IBM® UrbanCode®.
"Organizations that rely on Db2 for z/OS® require highly available,
resilient systems, and the tools to keep them that way. Automation that BMC
delivers with its BMC AMI solutions can help to assure that enterprises have
optimal access to their vital mainframe data," said Craig S. Mullins, President,
Mullins Consulting, Inc.
Through the new integration, pipelines automatically execute the
right tests based on changed source code only. Organizations are empowered to:
Reduce the skills necessary to create advanced CI/CD pipelines.
Optimize the development process and break down silos between teams by leveraging a modern, open development environment. Source code can be stored on the mainframe, or Git can be used as the application source code and test case repository by extending the existing ISPW/Git integration.
By driving intrinsic automation throughout a mainframe-inclusive CI/CD
pipeline, developers are freed up to focus 100% on delivering critical digital
