Consumer expectations rose with the advent of the digital age, and are likely to continue to rise as technologies continue their advancement.

The adoption of agile methods and new approaches to delivering business applications that use the new technologies, such as mobile, cloud, and real-time analytics, present demands on IBM® z/OS® and related areas, such as IBM DB2® and IBM CICS®. Each area changed its approach and provides new functionality regularly to meet the demands.

How z/OS, CICS, and DB2 provide continuous delivery differs because of the unique role each plays.

This IBM Redpaper™ publication describes z/OS continuous delivery.
