We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Valuable features include: SSM, which provides for orderly startup and shutdown; OPSLOG, which enables filtering by message-id, and/or jobname(s); Rules, as OPS/REXX interface streamlines deployment, interfaces easily with JES2 and z/OS.OPS/REXX is valuable because it allows us almost unlimited flexibility in automating our system.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.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.

When we changed to JES3, the programmers didn't have to know anything. The product provided the same interface with the same look and feel.I use most of the SMS space management extensively, but also the features that enable me to look at dumps and different dataset allocations to the system, and performance data from the queueing and delays.I also really appreciated all the work that everybody did to get it functional for JES3, and they continue to do so, even though IBM said they are going to do away with JES3.Thresholds with alerts are valuable, enabling us to fix a problem before it has an impact.

Cons
The interfaces to USS, CA UIM could be better. CA Common Services interfaces - namely Zdata Mover, Zmessage Service, Zdatacolletcor - are poorly documented.One thing that comes to mind is the MQ interface. The last time we tried to use it, it seemed a little clunky.Performing a stop/restart of OPS/MVS could be a little smoother. Without special coding, some undesired tasks will be started and some necessary tasks will be stopped if we have to bounce OPS/MVS during the day.​It’s a complex product. The initial installation is easy, but implementing various functions is a constant process.​

The things that I would think about would be in relation to JES3. However, I don't know if they'll be able to do much more with that because I don't know how much longer IBM is going to be supporting JES3. So I can understand not doing additional development. But if I were to suggest something it would be the JES3 initiators, the JES3 queues.It confuses a lot of people because there are so many features, but when they see me bouncing around they say, "I didn't know it did that, I didn't know it did that." It takes a long time to find all the different features that are available.The documentation format could be better. I noticed with the last release that all of the manuals were bundled into one. It used to have a separate installation guide, user guide, etc.
