How has it helped my organization?

It allowed us to automate all of our housekeeping.

What needs improvement?

I look forward to the application of these tools to all platforms in use, such as z/OS, Unix, and Windows.

I would like to have the possibility, so as to have access from my host tool, for instance to Unix. By way of this example, I use RC/Query to find objects (such as tablespaces, tables, etc.) on the host and also, in Unix. On the Main panel of the tools, there is one field called location and there I want to choose, if the information I get is from the host or Unix.
