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.

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.​
