BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline (ISPW) 22.x: Fundamentals Administering

BMC AMI DevX Code Pipeline (formerly BMC Compuware ISPW) is a modern mainframe CI/CD tool that can ensure your mainframe code pipelines are secure, stable, and streamlined throughout the DevOps lifecycle. With Code Pipeline, you’ll be confident that you can quickly and safely build, test, and deploy mainframe code. As a Code Pipeline Administrator, you will use Code Pipeline to maintain the REXX Execs, JCL, panels, messages, and skeletons used by Code Pipeline.

This three-day class combines classroom instruction with laboratory exercises to guide students through Code Pipeline Administering concepts. Students will develop skills in product configuration, effective administration of Code Pipeline, using maintenance functions, understanding how to troubleshoot problems, and more.

*This course was created with the former Compuware names, but the content is valid for users of both versions. The course lessons have not been changed to reflect the new names.
