A stable and reliable product that provides quick visualizations to see where things are

What is our primary use case?

We use it across mainframe Linux and Windows environments for batch and full workflow dependency. We do a lot of ETLs, so there are a huge number of dependencies, such as, get the flat file from an SFTP or call a script to pull the data out of a data structure. If you don't have the data, then nothing else should run.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have found the scheduling feature the most valuable. I can map dependencies by using ASG-Zena. It gives a nice, quick visualization as to where things are."
  • "The scheduling mapping is a little disjointed. There is no wizard-type approach. There are a lot of different things that you have to do in completely different areas. They could probably add the functionality for creating all components of a mapping or an OPA schedule. The component creation could be done collectively rather than through individual components."

What other advice do I have?

It is a very stable product, and it has a long-term history of reliability. However, in our organization, we're moving away from mainframes. They just do not fit with where we're going architecturally. My advice would be to not go for mainframe solutions because mainframes are dead. I would rate ASG-Zena an eight out of ten.
