The visual ability to see potential downstream impacts to changes being made assists our developers in understanding the impact associated with their change.It does our CICS NEWCOPYs and our Db2 binds for us, whereas before, that was a manual process. It takes a lot of the workload off of the operations folks and off the DBAs.We had parallel development before, but the way ISPW implements it is better. It has more control and oversight of the process, whereas before, it was like the Wild West. Everybody could have their own package with their own version of the component in it... ISPW is constantly aware of it. It notifies when someone else is using or has a different version of that component.

Cons
Technical support for this solution is very good, although they can still use improvement in some regards.Security features can be improved.Password complexity is not enforced by the tool.
