Take the guesswork out of application testing and development

On the road to improving code quality and successfully enabling test and development teams, it is clear that strong tools are needed in order to work smarter and move to an agile, DevOps style of development.   Gaining access to previously hidden operation data, understanding code complexity and maintainability as well as analysing, visualising and summarising trend information on test coverage, code quality and performance becomes critical.  IBM Application Delivery Intelligence provides the way to effective optimisation.

Anticipate any bumps on the road to the hybrid cloud

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence helps you remove the guesswork from your code testing and development. It is the first to use analytics to provide actionable insights and cognitively improve your DevOps activities.  Optimise time and resources, understand and measure code regressions, and determine if you are improving, based on historical code performance and code change data.  With ADI, quickly decide which tests to run, utilising the minimal number of tests with the greatest coverage. Knowledge is power with easy access to previously hidden data, and intuitive performance issue detection. Now you can ascertain and rapidly understand if the new code has sufficient coverage. Even the most complex code is identified down to your most business-critical programs. Gain insight and understanding into how your code is improving over time and if not, how you can make gains in the future.  Break down the trends of your files and functions via tests to keep up with changes and prevent regressions.

Consider the benefits

Test optimisation

Analyse, visualise and summarise trend information on test and code coverage. Help to reduce the low value tests and find defects earlier in the life cycle.

Earlier problem detection

By getting access to previously hidden operation data, dev and test teams can easily detect performance issues or defects throughout the development life cycle.

Maintenance governance

Immediately identify business critical programs and drill down to understand code complexity and maintainability.

Features and benefits

Test optimisation

  • Offers the ability to capture code coverage data from testing. Identifies potential test overlaps and helps ensure test plans are optimised.
  • This code coverage data can be generated from the integrated debugger in IBM Rational® Developer for z Systems™ or by the IBM Debug Tool.
  • Allows the user to monitor the effectiveness of their testing regime and DevOps adoption. Optimises the testing undertaken by recommending tests to be run to achieve optimal coverage.

Earlier problem detection

  • Visualise the response time, CPU time and usage frequency data from IBM OMEGAMON for CICS.
  • Deliver intelligence via data correlations from multiple data providers.
  • Provides an intuitive interface to help ensure users have near real time access to information.

Governance of maintenance

  • Show code inventory, code complexity, and other quality metrics trend at project level from IBM Application Discovery.
  • Compare maintainability index, artifacts, Source lines of code and dead code among projects to provide insights on project quality.

Introducing V1.0.2

The smarter way to analyse your data

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence V1.0.2 collects, correlates, and analyses data to optimise application delivery and take the stress out of your transformation to the cloud. Now its easy to foresee and reduce the risk of potential production failures. By collecting project-level application inventory, quality metrics, and complexity, from Application Discovery V5.0.1, you can manage improvements in application quality and maintainability with ease. Work smarter, not harder with IBM.

Anticipate and minimize risk

  • Easily access previously hidden Ops data to detect any performance issues that come up during the development lifecycle
  • In function tests, ensure there is no regression with unit testing.
  • Adjust the regression testing focus to anticipate and minimize the risk of breaks in production by accessing a quick view of the business - critical applications based on usage frequency
  • Detect problems early to specify provision/set up/adjust test environments with production

Improve project health

  • Quickly comprehend code coverage, performance, complexity, and maintainability to identify business critical programs
  • Reduce technical debt and complexity to improve maintainability by accessing a view of overall project health
  • Drive projects to completion to reduce complexity by understanding all the metrics and trends (number of lines, dead code etc.)
  • Ensure proper quality code by getting a clear view the health of projects being developed and decide which vendor to stick with or prioritise in-house projects
