Products and Solutions for z/OS

CCS is a complete application code-deployment solution that insures Sarbanes Oxley compliance. CCS securely controls, schedules and implements change packages into your production application software libraries. The systemís automation monitors and validates the entire change process. While managing module transfers between development, each QA level and production, all changes are logged and archived. CCS provides a detailed audit trail and insures that all changes have acquired the required management approvals prior to implementation.
CCS includes a license for both JED and XREF (See below).

Populate test files with uniformly adjusted dates in seconds. The Data Ager saves hours of test file preparation time. Data Ager quickly adjusts, forward or backward, all or a portion of, a files date fields. Data Ager insures that your test files are populated with accurate dates. The Data Ager has two steps. First, using Data Ager to view the file definition (Copy Book, ++Include, etc.), quickly identify and store the location and format of the date fields that are to be changed. Then simply tell the Data Ager your future test date and let the Data Ager quickly create a properly aged file for your test. Date location and format definition parameters are created only once and saved for future executions.

DCS assists operations by providing a fully automated alternative to the error-prone manual process of setting up jobs with date cards. DCS also speeds programming and guarantees accuracy by providing access to numerous complex date calculation and conversion routines, including those utilizing user-defined fiscal and holiday calendars, saving hours of redundant coding and testing.

DMS is a comprehensive collection of tools that help you manage your mainframe disk storage environment and is an invaluable add-on to your IBM HSM implementation. Among the various components, DMS includes HASP (a migration management tool), AHAB (an auto-backup validation tool), VSAM reorganization and tuning utilities and disk-to-catalog synchronization utilities.

H/SIS is an extremely flexible and comprehensive information management system that documents and manages a company's hardware and software assets. The H/SIS database includes financial, vendor, technical, physical/logical configuration, administrative, and contractual details.

Create test JCL and fresh test files from their corresponding production versions in seconds. JAT provides significant reductions in the time and labor associated with Application System Testing setup. Interactively define and save your test file naming standards and test JCL standards. Then anytime you need test JCL or fresh test files simply tell JAT the member name of the production JOB you are planning to test. JAT will then examine the production JOB and create renamed copies of the all production files needed for the test and optionally create a complete set of test JCL. JAT can create test files on the same system or prepare the test files for export to another LPAR within the same or remote complex.

JED provides a fully automated JCL management solution for today's z/OS data centers. Complete JCL validation, standards enforcement, reformatting, syntax checking, maintenance, conversions and tuning are now possible, automatically! JED can be executed interactively during an ISPF edit session or in batch mode while validating or changing multiple JCL members. JED can also be executed as part of an automated production change implementation process. The JED Remote Server Facility enables developers, as well as automated change control systems, working from a test LPAR/image, to accurately validate pre-production JCL that will later be executed on a different LPAR/image when DASD is not shared between the two images.
JED includes a license for XREF (See below).

PM/RS is designed to coordinate and manage the entire problem life cycle. It records, diagnoses, assigns, tracks, reports, and archives detailed problem information. PM/RS enhances the problem management process in a way that promotes timely resolution and increased customer/user satisfaction.

TBOX is a collection of testing, development and operational power tools for the z/OS environment. The Tool Box comes filled with specialized z/OS software routines and subroutines designed to expedite and enhance Operations, software development and testing.  Populate your toolbox with only the specific tools you need or keep them all. All tools are provided free of charge.

The DCMS Cross Reference System is a self-maintaining information repository and query system that provides instantaneous access to comprehensive where-used information on all of your JCL and program components. The XREF Monitor keeps the system's database current by automatically updating the database whenever library member is modified that contains a Job, PROC, program or program component. XREF allows analysts to perform error free change impact analysis in seconds, rather than hours or days. XREF eliminates the need to perform long running and often inaccurate library scans. NEW! XREF now provides CICS component information from the RDO database.
