Analyze for STROBE
Category:
DB2
Analyze for STROBE automates the STROBE process to pinpoint relevant SQL statements for further analysis by an EXPLAIN tool, e.g., Analyze+.

Analyze+ for DB2
Category:
DB2
To get the most out of automation, it is essential to perform application tuning instead of mere statement tuning. As opposed to statement tuning that is addressed by the majority of the well known EXPLAIN tools - they analyze SQL statements on a stand-alone basis - application tuning additionally reflects the actual usage of application systems by monitoring them. This allows concentration on the worst, i.e., highest resource consuming, SQL statements and avoids time spent analyzing SQL statements that have insignificant performance impact.

BatchControl for DB2
Category:
DBA
Regardless how much effort is spent to produce the most perfect DB2 utility jobs and SQL batch programs, even carefully written jobs fail due to unforeseen problems. Now there is a way to replace time consuming and error prone processes with productivity tools for EDP automation. BatchControl products are unique DB2 tools that govern the DB2 batch window:BatchControl for DB2/Utilities - Controls the execution of DB2 utilities and commands. BatchControl for DB2/SQL - Controls the execution of SQL batch programs.

MAS for FTP z/OS
Category:
Security Management
It's a must to fill the holes in Monitoring, Automation, and Security in FTP on z/OS, without using proprietory tools. FTP offers the obvious benefit of being available in the TCP/IP-stack that comes with every single operatingsystem. FTP operates according to the RFCs on each of these platforms, and has added specific SITE commands for each platform. This makes FTP a very powerful tool, but usually not used due to its weaknesses. FTP lacks monitoring, automation, and security facilities. Specifically in the z/OS domain, which has a history of tight control and security, organizations are conscious that they have to address this weakness.

Maintain for DB2
Category:
DBA
Maintain for DB2 z/OS will distinguish your company from the rest with its state-of-the-art solutions for providing the best automatic database maintenance possible. Your customers and internal users drive the need for better services for your business processes. Not only does this require an extension of online service times, e.g., from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., but may also mean around-the-clock operations 24 hours a day 7 days a week. As a consequence, getting your database maintenance completed in a smaller batch window, or even parallel to online operations, is more important than ever.

OPC/Graph
Category:
Schedule Management
Presents OPC's application description and current plan as netplans on a PC. Prints netplans directly on host printers. Produces easy to understand documents on the Host directly from your application description database. Provides a query approach to OPC

PackageManager for DB2
Category:
DBA
PackageManager examines consistency of load modules and/or DBRMs and packages of the DB2 catalog to determine unnecessary packages.

Pilot for Sessions
Category:
Session Manager
Pilot for Sessions is a VTAM Session Management Exit (SME) program that allows you to control SNA sessions. By improving the functionality of VTAM at the session level, Pilot for Sessions can help you to achieve greater flexibility, security, and adaptability from your multiple domain or interconnected SNA networks.

PiT Recovery for DB2
Category:
DBA
A PIT recovery is always needed when unwanted and irreversible SQL updates are made to the DB2 database, e.g., a program error or a flawed operational procedure such as running a batch application twice or using bad input. Subsequent SQL update processing makes the situation even worse because it may result in additional erroneous data. In a situation like this, pinpointing the corrupted table spaces and indexes is especially difficult with ERP and CRM because the referential constraints (RI) are ruled by the application, instead of using the physical RI feature of the DB2 database. Therefore, a DBA cannot be certain that all data tables are logically consistent with each other when recovering just a subset of the ERP and CRM tables. The alternative solution is a recovery of all table spaces and indexes of an ERP or CRM system to a prior point. With tens of thousands of objects, this implies a very disruptive outage for several hours and makes this scenario impractical. Because the need for a point in time recovery is never entirely eliminated, SOFTWARE ENGINEERING was encouraged to develop a software solution that addresses and solves the problems with a PIT recovery for black box DB2 applications.

POPCon for OPC/ESA

Robot for Transactions
Category:
SAP Business
Robot for Transactions is a software product which can start and process online transactions within a batch job and is the transaction-oriented approach to DP automation. A human operator knows which data inputs are essential for a given transaction. These data input have to be passed onto Robot for Transactions via an easy-to-use command language. The command language supports both all keyboard input and logical commands. After having defined the transaction logic once, this can be submitted at any time as a batch job either manually or by a job scheduling system.

SeQuaLizer for DB2
Category:
DB2
Applications are constantly changing. Not only does it become impossible to find if SQL changes were made, but also to determine whether the changes are relevant. SeQuaLizer® compares different versions of SQL sources and pinpoints SQL tuning candidates based on the relevance of a change. The goal of this comparison is to establish whether a change to a SQL statement constitutes further EXPLAIN evaluation based on the likelihood of performance consequences. If the performance is not likely to be effected, all SQL is equal in SeQuaLizer®.

SpaceManager for DB2
Category:
DBA
Keeping DB2 objects such as table spaces and indexes in a proper state is well-known to be one of the important influential factors for good performance of application systems. Activities in this field are, among others, the reduction of extents and an appropriate sizing of primary and secondary space allocations. However, in practice it is difficult to collect all necessary information because it is wide-spread over the ICF catalog and several DB2 catalog tables. Additionally, formulas for space evaluation described in the DB2 literature can be quite intricate. Hence, there is the need for SpaceManager; an easy to use, comprehensive space information system with flexible related functions that allow an automated, threshold-driven space adjustment.
