New product aims to squeeze more application development life out of IBM mainframes

Enterprise application management solution provider Micro Focus this month debuted its enterprise developer package for IBM zEnterprise, which allows users to optimise application delivery on IBM mainframes.

"This is about allowing customers to continue to leverage their legacy infrastructure, and use it in a modern way or replace the mainframe completely with lower cost and more flexible options," says Kylie Kelly, ANZ country manager for Micro Focus, in an email to Reseller News.

The product helps expedite application development with its single Microsoft Visual Studio- or Eclipse-based integrated developer environment (IDE). It also includes tools to support development and unit testing on Linux for System z, AIX and x86 environments.

Micro Focus provides Borland testing and mainframe solutions to New Zealand customers, according to Kelly.

"Through the Micro Focus Partner Portal, partners will have access to a mountain of information on how to modernise COBOL-based business applications, modernise mainframe applications or easily migrate customers' mainframe applications to a distributed platform and manage business applications with application lifecycle management solutions from Borland," she says.

Micro Focus partners with such global players as Fujitsu and HP. Kelly says the company "aligns with selected system integrators to complement" their services.

"We look at our partners as an extension of our sales teams," she adds. "We...ensure they can take our technology out in the market and help their customers to succeed. We do joint marketing events with our partners and welcome all to participate. We also work closely with our partners to provide sales tools and collateral that helps them sell effectively and close more business leads."
