Here's a summarized list of the enhancements we have made to Version 20.0 of the CA Database Management Solutions for Db2 for z/OS from June to September this year:
Db2 in MF DevOps : Enabling Db2 Schema Provisioning
As organizations do shift-level testing, automating database schema changes in CI/CD pipeline helps the highly skilled database administrators to focus on more valuable activities.
A new set of JCL templates, sample JCL, and a new PROC are available inCA RC/Migrator and CA RC/Compare for use as building blocks in a CI/CD pipeline to improve time to market while retaining database administrator control over changes.
Modernization: MTC-DBM enhancements
Digital transformation drives the need to open access to your mainframe systems to a new generation of users. With the enhanced Mainframe Team Center - Database Management for Db2 for z/OS (MTC-DBM) graphical user interface, you can visualize application performance data in an easy to read chart format by SQL code, package, and authID. You can also export Db2 object information or application performance data in comma-separated values (CSV) format to share with others or for offline analysis.
Zowe Conformant APIs for CA Database Management Solutions for Db2 for z/OS
The Database Management Data Service (DBM Data Service) REST API for the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS has earned Zowe Conformant status with the Zowe API Mediation Layer. The Zowe Conformance Program gives users confidence that when they use a product, application, or distribution that leverages Zowe, they can expect a high level of common functionality, interoperability, and user experience. The Zowe API Mediation Layer consolidates mainframe RESTful API services into a single, secure point of access.
