Intro To CA 2E Change Management

  1. 1. Managing Application Development in CA 2E Marty Acks MKS IBM i Product Manager
  2. 2. Agenda  CA and MKS – A long-term partnership  Customer Scenarios  Managing CA 2E development  The Need for Managing the Application Lifecycle
  3. 3. MKS Overview  Publicly held - TSE:MKX  Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) specialists  Fastest organically growing global ALM provider  Helping IT organizations managing development for over 20 years  Solutions span NT, UNIX, LINUX, mainframe, & IBM i
  4. 4. CA and MKS  Over 150 active CA 2E CM customers worldwide  Partners with CA since 1991  Names have changed, but the commitment remains the same  CA 2E Change Management Option – Formerly Synon/CM, COOL: Xtras CM, Advantage 2E CM, and AllFusion 2E CM – Jointly developed by MKS and CA – Based on MKS’s underlying Implementer product
  5. 5.  US-based Retailer  MKS Implementer user since 1994, moved to CA 2E in 1996  4 IBM i with 3 logical partitions running 2 development hosts and 5 receivers  MKS Integrity now manages changes across all platforms, including CA 2E  MKS Integrity used for WebSphere and Java development
  6. 6.  Worldwide package delivery  Long time CA 2E and CM Customer in UK  Formerly Exel PLC  Global Regional Production Servers managed by CA 2E CM  Recent outsourcing initiatives managed by MKS Integrity
  7. 7.  US-based Fiserv Insurance Solutions develops Software products for Life Insurance industry  Complex multi-model multi-customer multi-version environment  SAS 70 Compliance achievement with CA 2E CM  All Fiserv Life customers utilize CA 2E CM
  8. 8. Nucor Steel  Fortune 500 Industrial company based in America  Replaced SoftLanding Turnover  Support Multiple Versions of a development model – Concurrent Development across models – Multiple Models Merging  Business Workflows enforced through MKS Integrity
  9. 9. The CA 2E CM Solution  Secures model from unauthorized change  Provides audit trail of all model changes  Supports the latest in CA 2E technology  CA 2E & traditional development supported  Insures accurate deployment of changes  Allows developers to spend more time developing applications  Based on underlying MKS Implementer technology
  10. 10. The CA 2E CM Solution  Quick Tour – Focus on CA 2E oriented development  Promotion Architecture  Administration and Security
  11. 11. Tour – Check Out Implicit While Editing in YEDTMDL
  12. 12. Tour – Check Out Explicit from Edit Model Lists
  13. 13. Tour – Check Out The Workbench
  14. 14. Tour – Check Out  Implicit – from any “edit” attempt via YEDTMDL  Explicit – from YEDTMDLLST  Check out info exposed in CA 2E CM & CA 2E panels  Advanced features: – Fast path “prompt once” for multiple check outs – Versioning-enabled for functions and messages  Concurrent development of functions (and messages) – Spans multiple models – Comparison available to assist with merging
  15. 15. Tour – Initiate Promotion Promote By Model List
  16. 16. Tour – Initiate Promotion Customize the Promotion
  17. 17. Tour – Initiate Promotion Confirm the promotion
  18. 18. Tour – Promotion  Promote by Model Object List  3GL objects automatically derived – Enforces promotion by model object  Separate batch phases  Single & multiple models supported – Optional QA models
  19. 19. Promotion  Places 3GL source/objects into target libraries  Optionally updates Message Files, Conditions, and run— time objects  Updated model objects locks information  Archives up to 99 versions of functions  Archive Recovery – Automated rollback of 3GL objects – Rollback of versionable objects creates a new list with model objects on previous change
  20. 20. Remote Deployment  Unlimited remote sites  No remote sign on required  Deployment Dashboard shows all systems in one view  Deploys everything but model – Including Condition values, messages, and run time objects  TCP/IP (or SNA) based  Relies on MKS Implementer Receiver technology
  21. 21. Advanced CA 2E Capabilities  Fully compatible with CA 2E 8. 5  User Source and User programs – Dependent and Independent modes  UIM or text help  Supports the latest CA 2E features – ILE (RPG and COBOL) – SQL databases – SQLILE (RPG and COBOL) – Service Programs (New in CA 2E 8.5)
  22. 22. CA 2E Administration/Security  Controls editing development models  Prevents changes to Models outside of CA 2E CM  Enforces Model Object type capabilities – Enforces roles, such as DBAs or contractors – For each of the eight model object types – Per user & model – View, edit, and no rights  Control access to Model Objects Lists  Control access to concurrent development for functions/messages
  23. 23. What About CA Plex  MKS Connector for Plex  Available from ADC Austin  Works with CA 2E Change Management Option (CM) or Implementer 
  24. 24. Beyond CA 2E Models – MKS Integrity  CA 2E CM supports “just” the CA 2E model and 3GL artifacts  CA 2E CM is a component of MKS Integrity  Gain control and visibility across global development activities  Seamlessly manage all ALM processes with one architecture  Delivers process but not at expense of agility  Next generation, enterprise-based architecture & capabilities with low total cost of ownership – Quick ramp to productivity – Low administration burden & support costs  Spans multiple platforms, teams, tool environments
  25. 25. Silos Are Barriers to IT Productivity 29%  One third of IT organizations are affected by software that spans multiple geographical, organizational, functional and technology silos Less than one fifth of companies >20% find it easy to coordinate change across silos 68 percent of enterprises have software built with 68% components developed by different teams – both internal and external
  26. 26. CIOs Need to Break Down the Walls  CIO Business Priorities  Align to business Make IT accountable to the business through  Innovate for growth streamlined processes and more visibility  Control costs  Manage entire operational portfolio  Comply to regulations Maintain customer satisfaction while delivering new solutions to market faster Make global development teams more efficient while meeting compliance requirements
  27. 27. Lifecycle Silos Process App Dev Process Process Business QA Analyst Process Process Help IT Desk Operations Results: Process, Communication, & Information Barriers
  28. 28. Introducing MKS Integrity MKS Integrity delivers a proven solution for application lifecycle management that breaks down IT silos enabling CIOs to boost productivity, increase visibility and meet compliance goals.
  29. 29. Flexible Process Definition
  30. 30. MKS Enables End2End Visibility Reporting Metrics Consolidated dashboard view enables executives to visualize progress and measure organizational efficiency Data Analysis Portfolios E2E lifecycle management empowers Requirements Source Test Deploy teams and breaks down silos Single centralized repository Enterprise enables complete control and visibility across the Repository enterprise
  31. 31. Complete Traceability
  32. 32. Why CA 2E CM and MKS Integrity?  Simplify development  Replace out of date commercial or home grown solutions  Eliminate deployment errors  Stop overlaid model changes  One ALM solution for all your CA 2E & traditional development
