iAM for Development
Fully Automated Change Management Solution
iAM for Development provides the automation, tools, security and information needed to manage the entire application development, change history maintenance and distribution cycle.
iAM for Development frees IT staff by automating time consuming manual tasks while securing all environments from Development through Production. Workflow with access control enhances security and contributes to comply with a variety of regulation.
iAM for Development is specifically designed for development teams using LANSA solutions. It also supports all LANSA products, iSeries native sources/objects like Java, RPG, and Cobol and IFS/QDLS documents/objects.
- 4 powerful LANSA oriented Development Tools
- Promotions/Transfers of LANSA definitions/objects to another partition are 100% automated
- Promotions/Transfers of iSeries native sources/objects are 100% automated
- Unique automated Impact Analysis Engine identifying all LANSA and iSeries native cross references and recreating them when and where necessary
- Direct link with the entire LANSA Repository, including task tracking
- Version control
- Support of multiple LANSA installations
- Powerful configuration and security options
- Distribution to multiple computers
- Distribution to multiple LPAR and partitions
iAM for Development provides a layer of automation with workflow and access controls that allow IT staff to immediately improve productivity using best practices for managing processes internally.
Throughout the entire application development, maintenance and distribution cycle, iAM for Development automates and secures Change Management Tasks usually performed manually by Developers, Analysts, Systems Managers and Operators.
Through tight workflow and access controls, iAM for Development efficiently manages all access rights to all environments including production by restricting a developer’s access to only the libraries and sources/objects relevant to their job.
Tremendous time gains are achieved with iAM for Development’s complete, reliable task automation. Less time is spent transferring, compiling and validating results, leaving more time for the critical tasks of software development & maintenance.
Eliminates human error factor
Forgetting to modify a file, not compiling properly or in the right order and other potential human mistakes, can be costly to organizations in terms of time and money. iAM for Development eliminates the risks of human error by automating tasks.
Contributes to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and more.
iAM for Development helps achieve many compliance regulations by automating, managing and providing an audit trail for any processes, workflows, versions, distribution and release cycles required for IT best practices. Developer resources can be freed up, keeping them focused on development rather than complex audits.
iAM for Development supports all LANSA products and are specifically designed for development teams using LANSA as a development tool. It also supports all iSeries development tools like Java, RPG, and Cobol.
Developers will benefit from the fact that the iAM software suite is completely integrated to the LANSA development environment on both the iSeries and Windows.
Complete automation of transfer from one partition (environment) to another of LANSA definitions and objects, iSeries native sources and objects (Java, RPG, ...), IFS/QDLS documents and objects.
iAM for Development also allows centralized management from development to deployment on multiple iSeries and partitions (LPAR) with total control over update schedule and complete change history.
Business continuity is ensured by fully automated roll-back in the event of unexpected results from code changes.
Impact Analysis Engine
Improves business continuity by ensuring that updates include all LANSA and iSeries native cross references.
Ensures that designers and analysts are able to rapidly identify *all* (cross reference) implications of proposed change without manual labour.
For any developer defined list of sources/objects, iAM automatically recompiles all cross references in the development partition.
For any developer defined list of sources/objects, iAM automatically recompiles all cross references in the developer Visual LANSA development environment.
Manages risk that developers may be wasting time modifying wrong code version by automatically refreshing development partition with current production sources.
