[Webinar series] DevOps for IBM i: On Git, SVN, RTC or TFS
Most of us on IBM i (aka iSeries, AS/400) now develop in a mix of languages and platforms. Diverse languages has meant different source code management (SCM) systems, some open source. It’s been every IT manager’s “holy grail” to manage all of this code in the same tool: one repository, one branching system, one way to manage versions.
So the traditional native IBM i SCM tools are losing ground. Welcome Subversion (SVN), Git for distributed version control, and Team Foundation Server (TFS).
But each of these SCM tools fails in two key areas: the Build (recompile) and Deploy of IBM i artifacts. IBM i technology comes in many variants, and without specific handling, teams face heavy manual effort and the risk of error.
This is where ARCAD and DevOps comes in. If you are looking to manage your IBM i source code from Git, SVN, IBM RTC or TFS, we will demonstrate how to fully automate:
- Access to your preferred source code repository from RDi
- Impact Analysis, IBM i & multi-platform
- Build (dependency recompile) for IBM i
- Deploy (and Rollback), IBM i & multi-platform
Our Webinar series opens with a general session on DevOps for IBM i, introduced by Tim Rowe, Business Architect at IBM. Then three breakout sessions demonstrate the ARCAD Pack for DevOps on Git/SVN, TFS or IBM RTC respectively.
