This SHARE event will feature 500+ technical sessions, covering key topics such as IBM® Z, DevOps, innovative workloads, analytics, Big Data, mobile, cloud and security. Infotel will be in booth #107 to discuss leveraging mainframe automation and Artificial Intelligence to improve performance and control costs on z/OS. Infotel solutions are designed with the DBA and developers in mind to save costs and reduce workload, allowing greater bandwidth to focus on more strategic tasks that impact the numbers of the business.

“We are excited to exhibit and present at SHARE,” said Carlos Almeida, business analyst for Infotel Corp. USA.

We look forward to adding Infotel’s expertise and experience to that conversation.”

Infotel will also be sponsoring a Lunch and Learn session with Db2 subject matter expert, Craig S. Mullins. The session will focus on the benefits and challenges of implementing DevOps into mainframe application development and also discuss the origins and other operational aspects of DevOps.

What’s New from Infotel at SHARE Fort Worth 2020?

Infotel will feature its latest product offering, Application Parallel Testing (APT) for IBM z/OS. Developed by Infotel technology partner Eccox, APT centralizes mainframe app development testing in a single mainframe (IBM z/OS) disk partition (LPAR). Based on Agile Development methods, APT dramatically accelerates application production on z/OS by providing multiple instances of databases and application code on a single LPAR so multiple developers can work concurrently on the same iteration of an app or apps in development. The result is the elimination of testing code builds in series and in multiple LPARs – the traditional Waterfall development method – where errors in code could only be found after a previous software build was completed and tested. APT allows for parallel development testing of application code by hundreds of developers concurrently across the entire enterprise, a cornerstone of Agile and DevOps application development methods. The result is faster application development and fewer bugs when an application is put into production. Subsequently, APT dramatically reduces the time need for app testing on z/OS, typically the most expensive phase of application development.
