CICS Resource Definitions as Part of a DevOps Pipeline
Project and Program: Enterprise-wide
, SHARE Dallas 2022
Many organizations already leverage automated DevOps practices for distributed applications, and now many are looking to include z applications in the pipeline. For CICS, developers manage source code and the executable modules, but the systems programmers typically manage the related CICS resource definitions. This separation between the code and resource definitions creates issues when incorporating CICS applications into an automated DevOps pipeline, This session will explore techniques and tooling using CICS Configuration Manager that allow application developers to create/modify/promote CICS resource definitions while also allowing the systems organization to have oversight and governance, so they can insure the integrity of the CICS environment.
