zReporter - Mainframe Reporting

Systems Management Reporting

Traditionally, the management and monitoring of mainframe systems has been a time consuming and expensive undertaking involving the hiring of specialized, full time staff, expensive legacy software with their equally expensive yearly maintenance costs, and lengthy contracts.

Today's mainframe system managers are experiencing increasing requirements for system performance, availability, backup compliance, security, and efficient use of system resources. With this increased scrutiny and pressure, along with ever-tightening budgets, forward-thinking managers look for cost-effective solutions to monitor and manage their mainframe systems.
