Driving developer agility through hybrid cloud with IBM Z

IBM and Red Hat are focusing on enabling IBM Z to fit seamlessly into the hybrid cloud. With Red Hat OpenShift and IBM offerings such as Wazi Developer, you can experience a consistent development approach. In these videos, our experts show you how different application components can be developed, tested, deployed, and managed through OpenShift, and step you through an enterprise application lifecycle, provisioning the application runtime and automation throughout the CI/CD process.

Introduction and demonstration

What is the hybrid cloud and how can you develop across multiple clouds while still maintaining a consistent approach to development?

DevOps pipeline (with GitLab)

In this session, you learn how GitLab unifies all the necessary components to control the delivery of software from a central point, whether that’s code issues and review or continuous integration and continuous delivery.

Automation with Red Hat Ansible

Understand the different components of the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. Ansible Automation is the enterprise framework for automating across IT operations. Ansible Engine runs Ansible Playbooks, the automation language that can perfectly describe an IT application infrastructure. Ansible Tower allows you to scale IT automation, manage complex deployments, and speed productivity.

End-to-end demonstration and wrap-up

See how the different roles in development, from developer to operations, can work across the OpenShift Container Platform on IBM Z. Understand how an application can be built and changes tested. See the process for deploying the app and how its performance can be monitored.

Summary

With that, you should now have a solid understanding of how IBM Z can provide a reliable platform for hybrid multi-cloud development, and how you can use standardized tools and processes to deliver business agility — without the need for specialized mainframe skills.

And be sure to check out our IBM Z developer hub for a wide range of resources on developing for IBM Z and z/OS.
