IBM mainframe environments play a critical role in today’s enterprise IT infrastructures, processing transactions that run the business. Organizations need to collect mainframe data, identify mainframe Configuration Items (CIs), and know exactly how they are configured. But the sheer number of interrelated IT components and configurations—as well as the constant changes introduced by business and technology needs— makes manual tracking difficult, if not impossible.
Ironstream for Micro Focus Universal Discovery for IBM Z enables companies to manage the tasks associated with Change, Incident, Problem and other IT Service Management disciplines for mainframe CIs. Ironstream’s support for Micro Focus Universal Discovery (UD) enables you to quickly view and easily build an inventory of critical physical and logical entities along with their interrelationships in the Universal Configuration Management Database (UCMDB).
This tight integration between Micro Focus and Precisely provides a comprehensive, accurate and complete view of your mainframe infrastructure for service modeling and service impact analysis – without requiring mainframe expertise. Ironstream for Micro Focus, along with Micro Focus UD and the UCMDB, allows your organization to include mainframe transactions and IT processes under a consolidated, enterprise-wide view. These initiatives help align IT efforts with business requirements and run IT operations more efficiently and effectively.
Achieving an IT Enterprise view of your CIs demands a solution that provides visualization of both distributed and mainframe/zOS resources and uses automation to reduce the risk of errors during discovery and UCMDB repository population.
