What can IBM Z Monitoring Suite do for your business?

IBM Z® Monitoring Suite brings together a range of IBM Z Monitoring tools into a single integrated solution. It’s 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, IBM Integration Bus for z/OS, IBM App Connect Enterprise on IBM z/OS Container Extensions and IBM WebSphere® application/Liberty servers.

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. Analyze IBM OMEGAMON® metrics with popular open AI platforms for alternate visibility and anomaly detection.

Benefits

Improve visibility

Consolidate views and build composite application dashboards to bring mainframe management information and tasks into a single environment. Stream OMEGAMON metrics to popular open AI platforms.

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 enabling ChatOps tool integrated into Slack®, Microsoft® Teams™, or Mattermost®.

Increase availability

Identify possible delays or outages. Gain a single point of control over subsystems IMS, CICS and Db2 in Parallel Sysplex® and monitoring of IMS Connect TCP/IP and CICS Transaction Gateway requests.

Isolate problems

Detect bottlenecks in code, server resources and absent external dependencies. Monitor transactions inflight and capture diagnostic traces dynamically for faster problem analysis.

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.

New feature: Z ChatOps

ChatOps is a model that integrates people, tools and processes into a collaboration platform so that teams can efficiently communicate and easily manage the flow of their work.
