Datical Supports IBM Db2 for z/OS
October 03, 2017

Datical announced support for Db2 for z/OS to bring automation to the mainframe as enterprises continue to digitally transform.

Now with Datical’s support for applications running on Db2 for z/OS, organizations across a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, insurance and banking, are armed with the speed and flexibility needed to automate database deployments without disrupting mission critical applications.

“Historically, mainframes have been the go-to platform for enterprises that work with massive amounts of critical transactional data, such as billing and payment processing, inventory tracking and product catalog information,” said Pete Pickerill, VP of Product Strategy, Datical. “As organizations implement agile and DevOps across the entire IT landscape, they’ve forgotten to modernize the management of the important part of the application – the database. This is really about giving our customers the solutions they’ve been asking for to help them overcome the challenge of maintaining mission critical applications on legacy mainframe systems while adopting modern DevOps processes.”

Datical, which also supports Oracle Database, IBM Db2 for Linux, Unix and Windows, Microsoft SQL Server and EnterpriseDB, manages application database changes alongside application code and keeps everything – application code, people and processes – in sync as new application releases work their way from development through testing, and ultimately, on to production. This enables application teams to close the DevOps gap.

“As database platforms like Db2 for z/OS continue to lead, enterprises are struggling to modernize systems that have been manually crafted for years,” said Craig S. Mullins, President and Principal Consultant, Mullins Consulting, Inc. “The market is undergoing a massive transformation, and enterprises need solutions like Datical to integrate database change with their application release automation processes to meet market and customer needs.”
