z/OS Applications - Adapting at the Speed of Business
Project and Program: Application Architecture Development and Integration

, SHARE in Boston 2013
Are your business people hammering on your door to make changes to the applications you have in production that they need, like now? Are these changes, often small ones, more about the business behavior of the application than any real structural change? Are they timed to your business cycle? Would you be interested if there was a way to handle those changes with shorter turn around times and a more stable application base while, perhaps, even establishing a common terminology between you and the business analysts?
IBM has Decision Management technology (do you remember ILOG?) that can tightly integrate with your existing COBOL and PL/I applications to handle those business decisions that need to change with the marketplace. The result can be more stable applications performing as well or better than they do now while delivering the behavior the business wants. It can really reduce that nagging backlog of "small but important changes needed yesterday" that consumes your programming staff's time and resources.
This session will show how to use the IBM Operational Decision Manager to make your z/OS applications more responsive to the ever changing demands of the business teams. You will find this session educational, enlightening and, likely, quite entertaining. Richard Szulewski IBM Corporation
