Compuware, CollabNet VersionOne
Integrate ISPW and Continuum
October 24, 2018
and CollabNet VersionOne have completed integration of their respective
products, ISPW and Continuum. The companies previously announced they
were partnering to help large enterprises unify their Value Stream
Management (VSM) by incorporating their critical mainframe software
development activities into their digital value chain.
ISPW provides DevOps-enabled source
code management (SCM) capabilities for mainframe code while CollabNet
VersionOne’s Continuum tracks, automates and orchestrates software value
streams across the DevOps lifecycle. Continuum’s visual interface helps
users see and understand the progression of what is happening in the
process of development.
The initial integration will enable Application Development and Delivery
managers to view and control the status of user stories moving through
the mainframe software development pipeline from the same Continuum
dashboard as they use to manage those pipelines across other platforms.
This dashboard enables managers to quickly identify which stories are
progressing on schedule, which have been delayed by defects, and which
contain trailing commits.
enterprises are relying increasingly on their core mainframe systems of
record as essential back-end support for critical mobile and web
front-end customer engagement. They must therefore orchestrate the
delivery of new software across all platforms at the same speed and
frequency to deliver value to customers.
“As planned, our partnership with Compuware is already delivering
capabilities that make it easier for mainframe users to scale Agile and
DevOps. We are helping them connect their mainframe-based development
activities into broader cross-platform efforts that can be incorporated
into unified value streams,” said Flint Brenton, CEO of CollabNet
VersionOne. “Value Stream Management keeps software aligned with
business objectives, which is essential for today’s dynamic and
continuous application development processes.”
“Enterprises need greater automation, better visibility and a
mainframe-inclusive DevOps tool-chain to increase the quality, velocity
and efficiency with which they create new digital experiences for
customers,” said Chris O’Malley, CEO of Compuware. “Our partnership with
CollabNet VersionOne will provide such capabilities, empowering
development and delivery teams to accelerate their DevOps journeys to
better meet their customers’ digital demands.”
