Like most organizations, you’re facing several challenges with your mainframe — from a growing mainframe skills gap to difficulties integrating the mainframe into your expanding hybrid cloud and IT infrastructure. These challenges create development and delivery bottlenecks that impact your business and your customers.

One strategy that has proven effective in attracting and enabling non-mainframe specialists to work on the mainframe while increasing development and delivery quality, velocity and efficiency is providing developers with open-source software. Open source represents a shared body of knowledge programmers can rely on across a broad spectrum of development environments. The portability of open source, combined with strong investments in the API economy, have increased demand for opensource languages and tools to be ported to many platforms and operating systems.

With Rocket Open Source software solutions, you can empower your developers to accelerate application development and delivery through DevOps and modern, graphical views of the mainframe. Empower developers with modern interfaces and their preferred open-source languages and tools for z/OS®, including over 30 popular open-source programming tools like Git, Python, cURL and Bash, allowing any developer to harness the power of the mainframe without spending months learning new skills.

With Rocket Open Source, you can democratize your mainframe and expand your talent pool, making it easier to fill mainframe programmer roles with top-tier talent regardless of z/OS experience.
