, SHARE in Orlando 2015
The traditional mindset regarding Release and Deployment (especially in the mainframe world) is to protect quality and availability by limiting change. The challenge with this approach is that the paradigm around agile development and continuous integration is based on the requirement to deliver high quality, working product, quickly. It’s interesting to note that this topic often surfaces when ITIL (Deploy) and Agile (Build/Test) camps meet.
Although most would agree that you often find attributes of traditional mainframe applications that make them less suited to a purely Agile culture, it’s worth considering that a significant inhibitor to end-to-end DevOps (Build/Test/Deploy “to Prod”) is cultural.
