Client-Driven Redesign of Mainframe Performance

White Paper Published By: IBM

Type:  White Paper
Length:  9 pages

When Clabby Analytics evaluates mainframe management environments, we examine:

  • The user interface (is it a graphical user interface [GUI] or 3270 command line - or both)
  • The level of integration between management tools (does the product offering have a master screen from which underlying management programs can be launched - and if so, how well are the ancillary programs integrated with one another);
  • Workflow efficiency improvements (does the product make it easier to perform a given management function; does it save the administrator/manager time?);
  • Role-based orientation (can the product be deployed and organized to present mainframe managers with tools germane to their specific jobs - for instance, can the tools be deployed with a database administrator orientation, or a CICS administrator orientation, and so forth)
  • The knowledge database (is there one and how does it work?)
