Quality control for Db2 z/OS applications developed on Eclipse based environments

Monitor, explain and alert upon all dynamic SQL in your DB2® for z/OS® systems

Proactive control of developments taking place outside the Mainframe world

More and more Db2 applications are developed outside the Mainframe world. Integrating a Quality Assurance system directly in the distributed development environment makes it possible to control applications from the development phase, before their effective execution on the Mainframe and deployment at any other stage. Thus, developers can easily remedy reliability and performance issues before testing on the Mainframe and consuming unnecessary CPU. As a result, the level of quality will increase and development will be more efficient. Testers will find and report fewer anomalies due to poor SQL and will therefore have more time to test the business logic and new functionalities.
