How to Ditch Waterfall for DevOps on the Mainframe

The Story of Compuware's Waterfall-to-Agile Transformation 

In 2014, we had an opportunity to transform Compuware and solve a major problem: We were a stagnant organization plagued with 40 years of waterfall development and could not provide our customers with innovative software to meet their shifting needs. In this white paper, learn how Compuware went from the status quo of a 12-to-18-month software development cadence to delivering new and enhanced product solutions every 90 days.

  • Moved through a transformation journey with new culture, processes and tools
  • Achieved our desired Agile/DevOps state as a mainframe company
