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


What is our primary use case?

Mainframe automation.

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

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped 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.

What needs improvement?

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

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I've never had any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scalable to the mainframe. No issues.

How is 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.

What other advice do I have?

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.
