CA OPS/MVS Event Management and Automation Review

We can define complex commands, making training of new operators quicker


What is our primary use case?

z/OS automation.

How has it helped my organization?

Once automatic IPL has been defined, anyone can perform an IPL with very little intervention. We know that all of the components will be started correctly.

Also, because we can define complex commands, the training of new operators is quicker. We can also put checks in place that will prevent user errors.

What is most valuable?

  • Responding to various events in the system.
  • Performing automatic IPL and shutdown.
  • Verifying system status.

It makes our job, as operators, easier.

What needs improvement?

It’s a complex product. The initial installation is easy, but implementing various functions is a constant process.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Excellent. It’s quick, responsive, and there is no problem with asking "how-to" questions.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

As the system became more complex, a solution was needed to make things simpler for operators and system programmers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I’m not involved with these aspects.

What other advice do I have?

Look at the samples. There is a lot of information there.

Also, this product has integration with CA-SYSVIEW, and they work great together.
