I would like to see better web browser support that display views, reports, and graphs. Currently, we use the IBM 3270 interface.
It would be nice if we could access the data and display it in a more “modern” way. I think there is some web client offered via the Vantage product. It is unclear to me what possibilities this client offers, as I do not have Vantage installed.
I would like to have a web client which supports all SYSVIEW functions and graphical dashboards. Perhaps this would enable us to export the data directly into an Excel format. After all, graphical displays on an IBM 3270 are not that great.
We have used it for over 10 years, although we stopped using it for a period of time due to a management issue.
We have not encountered any issues with stability.
We have not encountered any issues with scalability.
Technical support is very good.
We used MainView from BMC.
The installation was straightforward.
