"Organizations are looking to treat the mainframe like any other computing platform with the same needs to innovate, be more efficient and more secure. That requires selecting the right tools that truly optimize performance and costs while keeping developer productivity high. Using modern mainframe development tools, threat detection and response, along with automation help businesses connect the mainframe to their broader transformation initiatives like DevOps, SecOps, and AIOps." — Katie Norton, Senior Research Analyst, DevOps, IDC
