BMC AMI zAdviser helps you spot trends and patterns that may help—or hinder—mainframe software delivery and provides data-driven recommendations to improve outcomes. 

Eye-Opening Insights to Transform Your Process

Imagine having a visionary helper by your side, endlessly coming up with ways to guide your team toward better results. BMC AMI zAdviser is that helper, providing actionable insights on how you can enhance development workflows, influence individual developers' behaviors, and ultimately achieve results like cleaner code and up to a 600 percent lift in deployment frequency.

A dashboard for DORA metrics makes it quick and easy to assess performance around KPIs like deployment frequency, lead time for changes, change failure rate, and mean time to recovery (MTTR). The tool also shows correlations between developer behaviors and the resulting outcomes and prescribes actions to improve performance.

How zAdviser Works

Pulling together data points across DevOps tool chains, zAdviser provides the guardrails to guide software development on the mainframe to faster delivery and fewer mistakes. Here’s how:

Measure Productivity and Drive Modern IDE Adoption

BMC AMI zAdviser measures developer productivity throughout the mainframe software development lifecycle (SDLC), from commit to deploy. You can easily see which tools your developers are using so you know where to encourage adoption of a modern IDE to help team members manage code more efficiently. You can also pinpoint trends and patterns related to individual performance, identifying which steps will be most effective in streamlining your pipeline and reducing lead times.

"We implemented BMC AMI zAdviser to help us manage our software delivery better. When we saw abends, bugs, and code regressions increasing, looking at user dashboards showed us that there were developers not using BMC AMI DevX Code Debug or BMC AMI DevX Abend-AID, so we targeted training on both tools and quickly corrected the issue." — Director of Application Development, Global Auto Manufacturer
