SEA Mainframe Software

$AVRS
Category:
Output Management
$AVRS completely automates the accumulation, viewing archival and retrieval of JCL, SYSOUT, SYSLOG, JOBLOG and other critical JES output (OS390, zOS). $AVRS is an output management tool that will save an installation up to 90% of the human and machine resources presently allocated for these tasks. By allowing users to access system information online rather than printing it, $AVRS provides significant savings in printer and paper costs. In addition, $AVRS significantly reduces the personnel and system resources required to review failed jobs and JCL errors.

Cross Platform Commander

High-speed logic and command flexibility save FASTVSAM users time and money during VSAM management and maintenance tasks. The larger the dataset, the greater the savings. FASTVSAM is compatible with SMP, SMP/E, DFDSS, SMS and RACF. FASTVSAM is a member of the FAST PACK and is licensed individually, or as part of the FAST PACK family of products.

FDSO
Category:
Storage Management
FDSO offers an integrated platform for dataset reallocation, migration, compression, space release and expansion, directory management, and catalog management. Installations can maximize returns on their investment in DASD by using FDSO's powerful selection language to locate over-allocated, under-used, or misplaced datasets and adjust them to installation standards.

FMO
Category:
Storage Management
FMO is a selectable unit of FASTPACK that Enhances PDSFAST's PDS and DASD management features with the archiving of unused members, automatic space reuse, the control of access to selected members and data sets, the recording of accesses and updates to selected members in SMF, and the automatic updating of LLA.

JCLPLUS!
Category:
JCL/Job Management
JCL PLUS equips you with the tools, documentation, and support you need for total JCL management.

JCLPLUS! Remote
Category:
JCL/Job Management
changes are made to the PROCs and the JOBs. The changes all work in the development environment, but there is no way to be sure they will not cause JCL errors in the production environment. JCLPLUS! Remote allows you to validate the JOBs and PROCs in the production environment from the development environment. You can do this from ISPF, ISPF Edit, or in an MVS batch JOB. JCLPLUS! Remote can also be integrated with change management procedures to ensure that JCL and PROCs being returned to a production environment will work properly in the production environment.

ODDS
Category:
Schedule Management
The Operator Dynamic Dialog Subsystem (ODDS) is an expert console automation operations subsystem which gives systems programming and operations personnel the flexibility to dynamically manage and monitor data center functions.

PDSFAST
Category:
Storage Management
PDSFAST improves DASD and data center management by eliminating the long delays users experience when they wait for large PDS's to compress. PDSFAST speeds up all management functions, curbs DASD growth and increases the efficient use of system resources, saving you time and money on a daily basis. Comprehensive diagnostics help avoid costly disasters by detecting bad datasets passed over by IEBCOPY and other utilities, improving reliability and programmer productivity. The Auto Facility automates many common DASD and data center management functions, to relieve DASD managers and end users from time-consuming, repetitive, and error-prone tasks. The Auto Facility prevents unnecessary job reruns, enhancing productivity for the entire installation.

RA/2
Category:
Security Management
RA/2 is designed to enhance IBM's RACF security system. A data center can expand their proficiency by utilizing RA/2 to make complex and comprehensive inquiries, from one easy to use product. RA/2 is a vital component in a RACF environment. RA/2 operates in both online and batch modes to perform comprehensive cross referencing for reporting, auditing and administrative tasks. RA/2 can also be used for making mass changes/additions to the RACF database, and RA/2 uses only standard RACF commands and facilities. Here are some of RA/2's highlights.

RA/7
Category:
Security Management
RA/7 is a full replacement of the IBM RACFRW. The IBM RACFRW supports only RACF Event Codes 01 to 27. OpenEdition and other new RACF events will not be reported in any future releases of RACF. Therefore IBM now provides a new SMF off-load tool called IRRADU00 which works as an exit to the IFASMFDP program. The IRRADU00 from IBM allows a user to off-load RACF SMF related data (record type 30,80,81 and 83) into a flat file. In a second step users can load these records into DB2 if desired. IBM provided in their SYS1.SAMPLIB the necessary DB2 table definitions. Most installations however cannot afford to use IRRADU00 and DB2 to view and print the required RACF information. In addition it makes very little sense to have additional databases just to report on data you will erase once used as they become very quickly obsolete.

RA/8
Category:
Security Management
RA/8 automates the labor intensive process to manage RACF connect profiles. RA/8 manages the RACF profile relationships between user(s) and functional groups by using standard RACF resources. All information required by RA/8 is stored in the RACF database to ensure full data integrity.
