Abstract: Standardizing and streamlining are the two tenets on which an Enterprise’s DevOps transformation is built upon. This transformation can support cloud-native development workflows and isolation capabilities for mainframe development, but it raises specific requirements to the software development and delivery processes.

Because standardization is underpinned by open and modern technologies, the adoption
of these elements will be a core focus of our discussion. In this second publication we explore two areas of the software development pipeline: packaging and deployment of traditional mainframe applications.

Here we’ll discuss the importance of decoupling as a way to foster Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment practices, by introducing application component repositories, adoption processes, decoupling build, packaging and deployment from each other and work with an artefact repository.
