Scalability is definitely one thing. The size of the database can grow without any issues. We've got one database table that's got over a billion rows in it; quite a bit of data, and it handles access like a champ.
Nowadays, CA is doing a lot of improving as far as online maintainability of definitions, which is a huge improvement over the past. I'm able to do a lot of changes without any outage.

It definitely ​cuts down on our support costs. I do not get woken up in the middle of the night very often for a problem with Datacom.
The initial setup is fairly straightforward for a mainframe product.
It is a solid product.

For the "no-outage maintainability" of things, they are making improvements as we speak, but there is definitely still room for more of that.

The only minor issue that we have had with Datacom is in the installation guide: Some of the sizings for the databases have not really worked out for us, so we had to go in and resize them.
