Control of Web Services Across Java and Mainframe Environments Now Possible

Modernization Workbench Aids Analysis of Web Services, Their Interconnections in Mainframe/Distributed Environs

The business processes of leading organizations are managed and automated by diverse portfolios of enterprise applications. Core processes may begin with a Java application that then invokes processing on the mainframe via a Web Service. This requires that development organizations have complete insight into their enterprise applications -- from the Java application through the Web Service to the mainframe -- in order to ensure alignment with the organization's strategic needs.

"Companies increasingly rely on business systems created by linking a variety of Web service-enabled applications, but these multi-service composite applications are only as reliable and secure as the software they are built upon," said Tom Rhinelander, analyst at New Rowley Group. "Development organizations need tools that let them analyze, understand, and improve this underlying software, whether it was developed twenty-five years ago in COBOL or last year in Java."

Fulfilling this need, Relativity Technologies has announced the extension of its Modernization Workbench to support applications developed in the Java environment. Rather than relying on a basket of tools to understand multiple environments, Relativity Technologies provides a single repository that stores insight into a broad spectrum of languages. Users can now analyze their Java and mainframe applications, and their interconnections to gain a rich understanding of their Web Services ecosystem.

For instance, an analyst can understand the inner workings of a mainframe-based Web Service, identify programs that call the service, and then assess the related Java applications.

"The combination of both deep and broad analysis of application portfolios has long been coveted by enterprise development teams to help connect disparate application portfolios," said Steve Maysonave, chairman, president, and CEO of Relativity Technologies. "Now with the addition of support for Java, Relativity Technologies provides organizations with the insight they need to derisk and accelerate alignment of their Web Services, and enterprise applications in general, with business needs -- on the mainframe and in the distributed world."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
