OVERVIEW

ChangeMan® SSM (formerly Serena ChangeMan SSM) provides visibility into software infrastructure changes for audit and version control purposes. It detects and tracks all changes to critical libraries to roll back and restore systems to a compliant state. Changes can be synchronized to a disaster recovery or business continuity site, reducing costly downtime.

HIGHLIGHTS
Rapidly recover from disasters and reduce planned downtime

ChangeMan SSM automatically identifies and synchronizes changes to redundant sites for immediate readiness in the event of a site failure. To reduce planned downtime, it ensures that only tested changes are applied to target systems. All changes to critical libraries are under version control and can be rolled back reliably—quickly returning the system to a compliant state.

Rapidly recover from disasters and reduce planned downtime
Eliminate redundant software licenses

Member reference tracking reduces wasted disk space by identifying duplicate and unused partitioned data set members to identify opportunities to save on software maintenance costs.

Eliminate redundant software licenses
Track and manage changes in real-time for auditors

Member reference tracking reduces wasted disk space by identifying duplicated and unused partitioned data set members. By tracking program product usage, you can identify opportunities to save on software maintenance costs.

Track and manage changes in real-time for auditors
Reduce planned downtime through automation

ChangeMan SSM uses a unique fingerprinting technology to rapidly track who makes changes, what they changes are, and when they were made. It tracks changes to critical systems and datasets, including hierarchical and non-hierarchical file systems, references to members in partitioned datasets, and authorized program facility programs and libraries.
