Enterprises can gain tremendous business value from mainframeresident data, but use of this key asset is often limited by the need to understand the mysteries of applications developed in CICS and COBOL. Compuware is taking aim at this limitation by more broadly empowering IT professionals to understand and leverage data residing on IBM System z using graphical visualization tools.
HapagLloyd determined that Compuware and their Test Data Management solution, which leverages data and test data optimization product FileAID, provided the best solution for its needs.
Strobe identifies inefficient processing quickly and presents it simply via iStrobe. It also highlights instances of inefficiency that traditional analysis couldnt find. In ct, the proof of value exercise alone identified sufficient saving to pay for our use of Strobe and iStrobe.

It is great that Compuware continues to develop a complete DevOps toolchain for COBOL. Adding code coverage is a major achievement and I am very happy this is happening, said Olivier Gaudin, CEO of SonarSource. Our partnership with Compuware significantly enhances the ability of large enterprises to bring their mainframes into their crossplatform DevOps processes while still rigorously ensuring the quality of their core enterprise applications.
Group Software, a subsidiary of Pitney Bowes, quickly selected Compuware Xpediter and AbendAID for their application debugging and ult management needs.
Compuware is changing the way developers develop. Our products fit into a unified DevOps toolchain enabling crossplatform teams to manage mainframe applications, data and operations with one process, one culture and with leading tools of choice. With a mainstreamed mainframe, the mainframe is just another platform, and any developer can build, analyze, test, deploy and manage COBOL applications with agility, efficiency and precision.

With Topaz Workbench, we can integrate all of our Compuware toolsincluding Strobe, FileAID, AbendAID and Xpediterinto a single, seamless collaboration environment. Competing products could not offer this level of integration. Additionally, Compuware products have an easytouse intece that works for both mainframe and distributed developers. Based on our careful evaluation, it was clear that Compuware was the partner most committed to addressing future changeas well as offering us the best tools for our immediate needs.

It typically takes three hours to complete a batch processing task, of which the CPU processing alone takes one and a half hours. With Strobe, however, our programmers have cut batch processing time down by . percent, with CPU processing time down by . percent. The benefits of optimization are obvious.

With ThruPut Manager, we saved ,, in the first year with software maintenance cost reduction.
To me, its a nobrainer. If you can improve your performance, you can contain hardware and software costs. Strobe is the best tool on the market to do that, and we hope to have it in our shop for a very long time to come.
Compuware is opening up the mainframe to our nonmainframe staff so we can unleash the full potential value of our mainframe resources.

Strobe showed us that one SQL statement was eating up a good percent of CPU usage. After we fixed the problem, we noticed more than a percent reduction in CPU usage.
