GitLab can be integrated with IBM Z DevOps solutions to cover various aspects of Mainframe application development. Among these zDevOps solutions, IBM® Wazi Analyze can be integrated in GitLab CI/CD pipelines, to provide developers with additional insights into the structure of COBOL, PL/1 and Assembler applications on the mainframe.
Wazi Analyze is a containerized solution that helps developers better understand the relationships between z/OS artifacts in an application. It can be used to perform an impact analysis when planning for a modification, as well as for verification of the results after the change has been completed.
This video highlights the integration of Gitlab with IBM Z DevOps products (such as IDz) and demonstrates the benefits of Wazi Analyze in a change scenario within a COBOL application.
