Continuous testing for improved application quality
Distributed and mainframe organizations deliver end-to-end applications more quickly by adopting build and test automation procedures. IBM Rational provides a comprehensive test automation solution for multi-platform applications including regression testing, integration technologies and performance, and scalability testing. This testing solution helps you build intelligent and interconnected enterprise applications that can be deployed on traditional and cloud infrastructures, enabling you to significantly reduce test cycle times and move integration testing earlier in the development lifecycle.
IBM Rational also offers off-host mainframe application development and testing that can streamline the delivery of production-ready applications while utilizing fewer MIPS to test applications in a high-fidelity test environment on a PC or shared server.

Continuous integration and test virtualization
Traditional testing methods have become too costly and impractical to keep up with business demands due to the increasingly complex web of hardware, software and services. By automating the building and testing of z/OS application code in isolated environments using virtualized services, the IBM Continuous Integration Solution for System z helps significantly improve software quality while reducing delivery time and costs.
