This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides an example approach of an agile IT team that implements development and operations (DevOps) capabilities into an IBM CICS® application. Several tools are used to show how teams can achieve transparency, traceability, and automation in their application lifecycle with the assistance of all the stakeholders to deliver high-quality application changes that meet the requirements.

The application changes that are built highlight the composable and dynamic nature of using CICS, the Liberty JVM runtime server, and IBM UrbanCode™ Deploy, which allows developers to get their applications running quickly by using only the programming model features that are required for their applications.

The target audience for this publication is IT developers, managers, and architects, and project managers, test managers and developers, and operations managers and developers.
