More and more, technology is helping relatively small companies compete with their much larger counterparts. But when application development moves at lightning speed, how can companies ensure that they keep up with the pace of innovation without breaking the bank?
This question was on the mind of the IT team at German insurance group INTER Versicherungsgruppe, which sought to match the mainframe development capabilities of larger players in its sectors without adding to its workforce. With the tried and trusted System z platform at the heart of its IT strategy, the team was also considering how to encourage new developers to embrace the world of the mainframe.
By uniting IBM Rational Developer for System z software with its industry-leading integrated development environment, the INTER group managed a smooth transition to a new, comprehensive software development landscape that offers access to a modern toolset backed up by the sheer power of the mainframe.
The INTER group has gained a work environment for a new generation, while keeping efficiency and quality of software development sky high. The company’s IT team can collaborate more effectively with technical departments to develop the applications that really make a difference to the business.
