What IBM Tivoli Output Manager for z/OS can do for you

IBM® Tivoli Output Manager for z/OS® is an output management solution that automatically captures, archives and distributes output from local and remote systems. It then transforms the captured data into customizable reports – and automates report distribution and printing.

Output Manager captures SYSOUT from jobs on the spool, stores the SYSOUT on disk and then transforms the SYSOUT into reports. These reports can be viewed, printed and distributed to end users. It has both an ISPF interface and a web browser interface. The ISPF interface is used primarily by administrators. The web interface (ITOMweb) is used primarily by report end users.

Uses readily available z/OS capabilities

Uses trusted z/OS capabilities you already have – such as DFSMShsm, DFSMS and RACF – to take advantage of the strengths of the z/OS platform: reliability, manageability and security.

Increases accessibility of reports

View or print reports, archived SYSOUT or archived report pages – when, where and how you need to. View from your mobile device, web browser, email or an ISPF interface.

Integrates with IBM Workload Scheduler

Go directly from Workload Scheduler panels into Output Manager to view historical Workload Scheduler job output. Perform problem analysis. Compare historical run times and current/previous exceptions.

Allows for custom reports

Enables report administrators to define custom reports that contain a subset of the SYSOUT and indexed report pages that contain certain index fields.

Gives control over report distribution

Automatically prints and distributes reports to decision makers – as soon as they are available. Provides notification and delivery via email, and ability to highlight content-specific exceptions.
