zStream

MAINFRAME GOVERNANCE AND SYSTEM DELIVERY MONITORING

Agentless product for the monitoring and control of hardware and software Assets. It performs a logical mapping of Mainframe’s components and the auto classification of the metrics related to systems performance and service indicators.
User-friendly dashboards enable both executive and tech and technical personnel to have a clear real time view of assets and service delivery status so as to correctly adjust IT Governance rules.
Moreover, zStream supports you in Capacity Planning activities by prototyping new Mainframe configurations scenarios.

Configuration Management

CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT

Choose how and what to display according to your business needs.

  • CPC Configuration Editor: to define and schedule specialized CPC configurations depending on time-based workload or licensing compliance needs (eg: different configuration for working days, nights, weekends, holidays, disaster recovery tests, etc.).
  • Tracking of CPC Configuration Changes.
  • Planned or unplanned triggers: to automate the activation/deactivation IBM Capacity-on-Demand (COD) and Capacity-BackUp (CBU).
  • Hardware Configuration Manager: to track and schedule Hardware Configuration Definitions (HCD) changes.
  • IBM Monthly License Cost (MLC) compliance control (Sub-Capacity charges, prevalent Sysplex, four-hour rolling average utilization of LPARs or any other configuration or consumption based IBM license cost).
  • Automatic Operators: to configure deploy and monitor.
