Manage IMS administrative tasks with a single tool

IBM® IMS™ Administration Tool centralizes the control of key functions for IMS database administrators, giving you the tools you need to manage IMS DBD and PSB resources. IMS Administration Tool includes reports on IMS catalog space usage that help you compare catalog contents to your current ACB libraries. You can also issue IMS commands, generate simple, task-based JCL for IMS maintenance, and run SQL statements to access your IMS data. All of this is available in one tool through a graphical web user interface or a traditional ISPF interface.
