CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation Review
System State Manager tools make starting and stopping a mainframe seamless

Primary Use Case

Mainframe automation.

In terms of performance, it is the gold standard in mainframe automation.

Valuable Features

I personally like its System State Manager tools. They make starting and stopping a mainframe pretty much seamless.

Improvements to My Organization

I've always had it, so I don't really know that I can say how it improves my organization. I don't have anything to compare it to.

Room for Improvement

I don't know of anything that is required to be added.

Stability Issues

I've never had any issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

It's scalable to the mainframe. No issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is good. I work on several CA products, I generally find that they have a very good response time. And if they can't answer your question they always have levels above them that they can send the tickets off to.

Other Advice

I would definitely get a demo and look at this product and compare it to what they're running. All of these vendors have conversion processes, so I'm sure they'd have to do the other stuff that I don't do, make the dollars work. If it works I'd do it. 

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
