Wondering how to modernize your z/OS development process? Still stuck in the 1980s using host-based production control systems? Now is the time to move. State Street is using Rational Team Concert (RTC) and Rational Developer for z (RDz) for all its mainframe development, and UrbanCode Deploy for deployment. RTC is also used as the agile planning tool for all development teams, and is the key integration and audit point for all development processes. We are also in the process of moving from ClearCase/ClearQuest into GitHub with RTC for all the distributed teams. This talk will discuss State Street's approach, the benefits of the modern tooling, and how you can transition to a similar solution from where you are today.

Refactoring of a Jazz/CLM/DevOps Infrastructure into a Private Cloud at Siemens
Wednesday, Mar 22, 2017 | 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM | Reef E | Session ID: 2766A
Siemens Switzerland has operated a large Jazz/CLM infrastructure for the past five years. A growing user base and huge performance issues drove a redesign of the whole environment. The decision was made to migrate the current, bare-metal based infrastructure into a private cloud provided by ATOS. This talk will cover all topics pertinent to the successful migration: Redesigning and migrating the CLM infrastructure into the private cloud; migrating from WebSphere traditional to Liberty profile (learnings and configurations examples); implementing dual Active Directory forest support for CLM; migrating to Jazz Authorization Server (JAS) for CLM security; and single sign-on integration with IBM Rational ClearQuest.

IBM ClearCase: Beyond Version Management, a DevOps Enabler!
Wednesday, Mar 22, 2017 | 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM | Breakers I | Session ID: 5231A
For years, ClearCase has been a prominent name in software configuration management. Lately it has gained significant attention within the systems world with its seamless integrations with Cadence -Virtuoso and National Instruments LabVIEW environments. The "Big and Important Question" that arises today is if ClearCase can go beyond what it already does best; i.e., configuration and version management. What role does it plays in continuous integration, continuous testing and managing infrastructure as code, eventually leading to continuous delivery? This talk will address these pertinent questions in detail, and showcase how ClearCase fits best within software and hardware worlds for their collaborative lifecycle management (CLM) needs.
