TODO Group is proud to announce a new OSPO Mind Map version release. The mind map shows a Open Source Program Office’s (OSPO) responsibilities, roles, behavior, and team size within an organization. This post highlights the major improvements done by the community in this new version of the OSPO Mind Map.

Updates on Responsibilities section

OSPO Mind Map Responsibilities section has new OSPO-specific topics and different sub-sections defined, including:

  • 📘 Develop and Execute Open Source Strategy
  • 🧭 Eliminate Friction from Using and Contributing to Open Source
  • 🖥️ Manage Open Source IT Infrastructure
  • 📚 Give Advice on Open Source
  • 🫶 Grow and Retain Open Source Talent Inside the Organization
  • 🤝 Implement InnerSource Practices
  • ⏱️ Track Performance Metrics
  • 🤝 Collaborate with Open Source Organizations
  • 📈 Prioritize and Drive Open Source Upstream Development
  • 📝 Establish and Improve Open Source Policies and Processes
  • 🔍 Oversee Open Source Compliance
  • 📒 Support Corporate Development Activities

Initial pull request with these changes can be found here . OSPO mind map animation

Welcoming Contributors 👋

The TODO Community welcomes more contributors to the OSPO mind Map to bring together the various communities involved in OSPO-specific topics. This will help to improve open source professionals’ guidance across the OSPO ecosystem (e.g topics like “InnerSource”, “Open Source metrics”, “Open Source Compliance” and more).

Updates on display

Initially, the OSPO Mind Map displayed all sections by default, showing a huge mind map image. Now, when people access https://ospomindmap.todogroup.org/ the display view will only show the first 2 levels, so people can expand specific sections, avoiding unnecessary information and focusing on what matters to them at that time.

Welcoming Contributors 👋

We are looking for tech contributors to work on a process to automatically deploy new versions of OSPO mind map to the website . If you’d be interested to contribute, please open a PR !

About OSPO Mind Map and OSPOlogy

This Mind Map is part of the TODO Group’s OSPOlogy repository which encapsulates a set of open initiatives (including the OSPO Mind Map, aparente integral & regional meetings, an OSPO discussion forum, monthly OSPO News, and now, in-person workshops) to work in collaboration and study the status of OSPOs.

Acknowledgments

Zowe LTS V2 increases product stability, security and interoperability and ensures longevity compatibility with the Conformance and Conformant Support Provider Programs

SAN FRANCISCO, May 26, 2022 – The Open Mainframe Project announced today that Zowe, an open source software framework for the mainframe that strengthens integration with modern enterprise applications, marks a major technical milestone with the Long Term Support (LTS) V2 release. The second version, which comes 2 years after the first LTS release, will offer vendors and customers product stability, security, interoperability as well as easy installation and upgraded features.

“As organizations expand their hybrid cloud workloads, the Zowe framework evolves to address critical architectural requirements,” said Rose Sakach, Chair of the Zowe Technical Advisory Committee and Product Manager at Broadcom. “Since its launch in 2018, Zowe has become a foundational enabler to businesses’ hybrid IT strategy. The LTS V2 Release will continue to strengthen this value with developer-friendly features and benefits.”

Benefits of the LTS V2 include:

  • Stability: Organizations can confidently adopt the technology for enterprise use and upgrade when appropriate for their environment, minimizing the risk of disruption.
  • Interoperability: Zowe consumers can be assured LTS-conformant extensions have adapted to and support LTS features.
  • Longevity: Zowe is designed for years of use and plans are in place for continued updates and support.

Open Mainframe Project launched Zowe, the first-ever open source project based on z/OS, in 2018 to serve as an integration platform for the next generation of administration, management and development tools on z/OS mainframes.  The Zowe framework uses the latest web technologies among products and solutions from multiple vendors. Zowe enables developers to use natural, industry-standard, open source tools to access mainframe resources and services.

Feedback and interest in Zowe have been noteworthy. Since January 2022, Zowe has more than:

  • 130,000 downloads
  • 87,000 page views and 16,000 visitors of zowe.org
  • 520 contributors

Key features of Zowe LTS V2 include:

  • More security features built in to ensure data and user credentials are always encrypted and safe.
  • A new daemon mode delivering performance improvements for the command line interface.
  • The time to value to configure Zowe is faster and easier.
  • There is more engagement and collaboration between team members using Zowe for modern DevOps at scale.
  • New APIs created by the community

“Zowe continues to innovate as a direct result of the contributions, leadership and passion of the total open source community,” said John Mertic, Director of Program Management for the Linux Foundation and Open Mainframe Project. “Zowe shows no sign of slowing momentum and the LTS V2 release demonstrates our commitment to interoperability, stability and security.”

Other Zowe Updates

  • Zowe Chat, a new incubator project that extends z/OS use by focusing on working with mainframes from chat clients such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Mattermost (with extensibility for other solutions). A set of commonly used scenarios will be provided, and the framework will be desplegable so sites can add new scenarios. Similar to other Zowe core packages, the chat framework will be desplegable by vendor tools, bringing an integrated user experience for more elaborate cross-vendor scenarios. Read more about it here.
  • Zowe IntelliJ Plugin , a new incubator project that provides access to the mainframe from IDEs like IntelliJ, PyCharm, WebStorm and more. Launched by IBA Group, the IntelliJ IDEA plug-in leverages z/OSMF to interact with mainframe data sets and USS files, which enables those natural with these IDEs to comfortably work with the mainframe just like other projects. This integration will improve the efficiency and overall happiness of IntelliJ enthusiasts now working on the mainframe. Learn more in this blog.
  • Zowe was recognized as the Best DevOps for Mainframe Award in this year’s DevOps Dozen competition. It was selected over a number of commercial vendor offerings, reflecting a widespread appreciation for the value of an open source solution for the mainframe. Learn more.

The Zowe Conformance Program is Updated with LTS V2 Guidelines

Aimed to build a vendor-neutral ecosystem around Zowe, Open Mainframe Project’s Zowe Conformance Program launched in 2020.  The program has helped Open Mainframe Project members such as ASG Technologies, BMC, Broadcom, IBM, Micro Focus, Phoenix Software International, and Rocket Software incorporate Zowe with new and existing products that enable integration of mainframe applications and data across the enterprise.

To date, 75 products have implemented extensions based on the Zowe framework and earned these members conformance badges
