Summary: Mainframes have been around for many years, and so have most of the methods for testing them. Consequently, testing can’t match the pace of development, causing slow release cycles. However, test automation - when approached right - can speed up testing, and also reduce risk and costs, which are critical in today’s market.
In this guide, we outline how modernizing mainframe testing with automation becomes possible. We discuss the main challenges in mainframe testing and test automation and explain how these can be overcome with the right tools and strategy.
With this approach, enterprises can move away from tedious, error-prone manual testing and towards efficient and accurate automated tests.
