Compuware enhances analysis and debugging tool

Enables mainframe developers to support mission critical applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Compuware has upgraded its analysis and debugging tool, Xpediter with Eclipse 2.0. This latest release reportedly enables support to mission critical business applications using a point-and-click environment.

As mainframe IT professionals continue to retire, IT leaders must find new personnel to maintain and enhance their critical mainframe business applications. This loss of experienced developers also means the loss of the institutional knowledge essential to supporting the organisation’s critical systems, the company said.

Compuware Xpediter reportedly allows the developers analyse applications and understand the business processes and data flows in those applications. Xpediter with Eclipse 2.0 also allows these new developers to move away from the traditional green screen interface and providing a point-and-click environment, to which these new employees are accustomed.

The company claimed that the new offering is a product in the company’s mainframe products family. These products combine to address four IT issues: achieving greater productivity with fewer resources, complying with data privacy laws/rules, improving application performance with less downtime, and transitioning a new workforce into a multi-tier enterprise environment.

Rose Rowe, vice president of mainframe solutions at Compuware, said: The point-and-click access helps the next generation of Mainframe developers feel more comfortable, but the real value is in Xpediter’s ability to help new developers understand years of business processes and data flows that were coded into these mission critical business applications.
