What IBM Z Monitoring Suite can do for your business

IBM® Z® Monitoring Suite brings together a range of IBM Z Monitoring tools into a single integrated solution. It is designed to provide both operations and deep domain experts with observability for health, availability and performance management in near real-time and historical metrics, across IBM z/OS® operating system, networks, storage subsystems, Java™ runtimes, IBM Db2®, IBM CICS®, IBM IMS™, IBM MQ for z/OS and IBM WebSphere® Application Server.

Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your z/OS systems management by channeling the mainframe management information and tasks into a single service management dashboard. Use Watson AIOps to correlate monitoring events and apply analytics to understand the impact from IBM Z events across hybrid cloud.

Benefits

Improve visibility

Consolidate views from a range of tools and build application views across platforms. Use a service management dashboard to bring mainframe management information and tasks into a single environment.

Outsmart performance issues

Prioritize and isolate issues—and use automated tools to resolve. Help prevent outages and performance problems with intelligent alerts, targeted reporting and linkages to related tools.

Collaborative problem resolution

Reduce problem resolution time by improving cross-team collaboration with a ChatOps tool integrated into Slack® or Mattermost®.

Increase availability

Identify potential delays or outages. Gain a single point of control over IMS in Parallel Sysplex® and monitoring of IMS Connect TCP/IP transaction requests. Use diagnostic tools to assess health.

Isolate problems

Detect bottlenecks in code, server resources or external dependencies. Monitor new applications and reduce steps to identify root causes of performance impacts.

Make informed decisions

Enable IT personnel to understand business impacts of system events. Gain information about applications, APIs and subsystem performance to identify root causes of problems and resolve efficiently.
