  9. 9. IBM Developer for z Systems Enterprise Edition V14.0 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. – Improves efficiency and responsiveness “We can be more responsive to the business, and we’ve gained that agility we need to keep up with changing regulations.” —Jeff Blackadar, application development manager The transformation: Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) was at risk of losing talent because many of the programmers supporting the organization’s flagship COBOL application were approaching retirement. To modernize its development environment, the company implemented IBM® Rational® Developer for z® Systems software, which helps programmers maintain COBOL code in an environment that looks similar to Microsoft .NET or Java environments. Increases efficiency by supporting hybrid developers who can work across different application platforms Helps programmers without extensive COBOL experience maintain COBOL code in a familiar development environment Cut down a backlog of work from years to less than six months Solution component Software • IBM® Rational® Developer for z® Systems
