Mainframe testing skill is a quite niche skill. Though many organizations are trying to move from less user friendly mainframe applications to modern client/server applications but it will still exist for a while. Since mainframe testing is difficult and trainings are not easily available so the demand of a mainframe tester is great in the market.
Major challenges faces by organizations in Mainframe Testing are :
Inability to ENSURE DATA PRIVACY in Both Test and Production Environments.
Confidential customer data is exposed daily to your trusted insiders, IT vendors and even third-party developers. An inability to grab sterile, yet relevant, data for test environments exposes sensitive information that can put your business at risk. An inability to monitor application usage and data exposure within your systems leaves the business exposed to expensive and large-scale data breaches.
Inefficient Management of Data in Test
Mainframe Testing environments are very complex. Testing without the right data and the right amount of data is incomplete and can be very costly, because developers use significantly more data than needed, producing long testing cycles and additional CPU usage.
Poor Application Quality
The inability to confidently and consistently deliver high-quality applications in a timely manner costs the business money. If your development and testing efforts are inefficient, most of your time is spent on maintaining existing applications instead of developing new projects that will add innovation and value to the business.
