BMC Compuware Topaz for Program Analysis helps developers understand unfamiliar or complex mainframe applications through a visual representation of code structure and logic as well as the actual I/O and program trail during execution.

Intelligent analysis and visualization of mainframe programs

Topaz for Program Analysis provides rich visualizations of the interactions between mainframe programs, making it easy for veteran and novice developers alike to quickly understand, update, and troubleshoot even the oldest and most complex mainframe code. With Topaz for Program Analysis, developers can:

  • See dynamic, graphical mapping of program-to-program calls
  • Pinpoint performance bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and inter-program impacts
  • Discover and investigate dependencies across programs and copybooks, without moving code off the mainframe
  • Support both COBOL and PL/1 applications
