Applications sometimes fail

When applications abnormally end (ABEND) it is crucial to understand the root-cause. But this search can take time and resources. And the clock is ticking when it comes to getting production back to normal.

Meanwhile enterprise users of IBM Fault Analyzer for z/OS® can discover ABENDs faster, more confidently, and in less time. That’s because when an application abnormally ends, IBM Fault Analyzer for z/OS automatically springs into action, harvesting real-time information of the ABEND and its environment at the time of failure. Our analysis engine will deliver real-time information on your CICS®, WebSphere® MQ, IMS™ and Db2® environments.

The road to success can be a bumpy one. And when application development teams encounter delays the entire enterprise feels it. But with IBM Fault Analyzer for z/OS the road just became a whole lot smoother.

Benefits

Closing the skills gap

Developers and operators don’t have to interpret complex low-level system records or error messages. A single fault analysis report can describe why and where an ABEND occurred.

Intelligent, efficient analysis

User can perform fault reanalysis in batch or interactive mode. Use batch to free up the TSO session for others. Remain in interactive mode to review storage area, source code, or CICS ABEND info.

Confidence to act

Captured decades of experience from leading software architects, developers, and testers into our powerful analysis engine. We’re enabling teams to make decisions more confidently and instantly.

Reduce costs

When you develop, test, and triage new and existing applications with intelligent tools your productively skyrockets. Reduce risks and associated costs from application failures.

Speed through stability

ABENDs lead to increased downtime and loss of productivity. Roll back code in production while you fix mistakes in the development environment. Get back to scale quicker than before.

Keep customers happy

Application failures will undoubtedly occur. But they don’t have to keep you down. Faster diagnosis means interruptions stay at a minimum while your end user’s experience remains at a maximum.
