Release model change:
On the CA MAT V12 GA boundary, our product is transitioning from an Incremental Release Delivery model (INC) to a Continuous Delivery model (CD).
What is the CA Continuous Delivery model? This release model offers customers the ability to enable new features and apply maintenance for known defects. Enables more frequent code drops. Clear separation of delivered features as individual PTFs from product fixes and where applicable, feature provisioning in a disabled state by default, which allows you to plan for the introduction of new features. Please review the PTF HOLDDATA and product documentation for specific details and activation requirements. More information regarding the Mainframe Continuous Delivery Strategy can be found here.
New features in MAT V12 GA & documentation links:
Throughout the past development CA MAT V12 brought substantial changes to our architecture, delivered dozens of important features to our clients, and with this last drop reached a significant milestone by delivering a new set of features: Zowe CLI plugins, and RESTful API supported by CA MAT Database.
CA MAT Detect plug-in for Zowe CLI and CA MAT Analyze plug-in for Zowe CLI conclude perfect E2E solution for performance tuning, they are backed up by their respective REST API counterparts which access brand new data storage for our clients: CA MAT DB utilizing CCS DCM database.
This solution allows you to easily integrate 'Performance on Commit' checks into the CI/CD pipeline and shift left your performance testing thus increasing savings and furthermore reducing resource consumption, significantly decreasing risk of performance issues hitting production systems, reducing overall costs of defect resolution and saving time spent on performance issues analysis for both development and production specialists.
