In our recent Mainframe Virtual User Group (VUG) meeting, we highlighted the latest features in the ChangeMan ZMF Client Pack. John Skelton, Principal Developer from the ChangeMan ZMF Development team and frequent presenter at VUGs and the annual Serena Software xChange User Conference, stepped the attendees through an overview and an awesome demo of the latest and greatest ZMF Client
Serena had a great turnout for the Mainframe xChange12 breakout sessions and the “xChange Again” webcast on October 4. At xChange, our customers had many questions about the future of the mainframe. In many respects, we are at the greatest crossroads in the history of the mainframe. Three points were loud and clear from our customers.
1. Our customers are doing more with less.
With downsizing, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate restructuring, we have customers who now have only 2 or 3 ChangeMan ZMF administrators versus the 8

It was with great pleasure I attended a vibrant Federal User Group last week. With so many advances and improvements in the past 12 months, Federal agencies and system integrators showed enthusiastic interest in the evolution of our Orchestrated ALM solutions – Requirements Manager, Development Manager and Release Manager. Within the Federal government, as in many enterprise IT organizations, there is a continued need to drive efficiency and transparency across both Application
We’re just a few weeks away from publishing our ALM research survey based on almost 1000 IT professionals. One thing that’s clear: when it comes to understanding what’s going on across IT, IT is often in the dark.
