z/OS Library Validation and Software Asset Management
“Find out what’s needed. If you don’t use it, get rid of it”- still clichés in today’s computer budget meetings. With P-Tracker you have a software monitoring tool for z/OS mainframe systems that not only tells you which software products and inhouse modules have been truly accessed but how much they’re being used and by whom.
P-Tracker will ensure every module of every product and application you identify to it is monitored for usage on your z/OS system and sub-systems (CICS, IMS, ..). And you’ll know who’s using it. Knowing which modules are used means you know which features are used in your current systems, and which systems are obsolete.
If your job is to continue to reduce mainframe software costs at your organization, or look at options regarding system replacement costs, then P-Tracker automates the delivery of the current usage information you need to be in charge of negotiations:
- P-Tracker detects and identifies software products your installation isn’t using anymore, so you can cancel rental or maintenance on them, and cease supporting them.
- P-Tracker identifies the users of lightly used products, so you can find out if their software needs can be met in other ways.
- P-Tracker helps you find software that’s installed on the wrong system, so that you can remove it.
- P-Tracker finds all modules that are used to ensure that you will convert the right modules and features when migrating to new systems
