Topic: DevOps for IBM i and Modernization Tools

Speaker: Floyd Del Muro, Business Development Manager, Arcad Software

Session Abstract:  Most of us on the IBM i now develop in a mix of languages and platforms in addition to modernization projects. Diverse languages have meant different source code management (SCM) and deployment systems. It’s been every IT manager’s “Holy Grail” to manage all the code in the same tool: one repository, one branching system, one way to manage and deploy versions, in the end, one version of the truth. So the traditional native IBM i SCM tools are losing ground and versatility. Welcome SCM tools like Rational Team Concert (RTC) and GitHub for distributed source control. But each of these SCM tools fail in two key areas on the IBM i: the BUILD or recompile and Deploy of IBM i artifacts. We will explore technology options to bridge these gaps and automate a complete DevOps cycle on IBM i.

Who Should Attend: DevOps, Software Engineers, QA/QC Testers, Infrastructure Engineers, Modernization Engineers, Managers, anyone interested in modernization on the IBM i.

Floyd Del Muro: With 27 years of experience on the IBM midrange platform, Floyd Del Muro is the Business Development Manager for the ARCAD Software group.  In his role at ARCAD Software, Floyd has been extensively involved in the management of DevOps and Enterprise Modernization projects on IBM i, from planning stages through to delivery.  Drawing on his experience in project roll-out, managed services and the introduction of agile methods, Floyd is a subject matter evangelist and speaker on the subjects of DevOps, Test Automation, Application Lifecycle Management and Modernization.
