Provision z/OS environments in minutes

The IBM® z/OS® Provisioning Toolkit is a simple command line utility for the rapid provisioning of z/OS development environments. Application developers can provision and de-provision z/OS applications in minutes—without requiring any z/OS specific administration skills—reducing time to delivery. System programmers can easily manage the provisioning process by preconfiguring the environments, control developer access through z/OS security and set appropriate provisioning limits. The toolkit is fully supported and available to all IBM z/OS V2 clients at no additional charge.


Become more efficient

Enable developers to provision environments as needed with automation—reducing the burden of managing development and test systems and reliance on operations staff.

Provision with control

Provide pre-configured environments using workflows, control access with z/OS security and limit the number of provisioned environments.

Simplify with a common language

Standard terms such as ‘image’ and ‘container’ enable development and operations teams to speak the same language—whether for CICS®, MQ, z/OS Connect or other environments.
