Did you know that we recently combined many “add-on” products for CA Datacom into our offerings?


Now you can unlock the potential of multiple products within one product code. This means that if you are a CA Datacom or CA Ideal customer running a current release (z/OS 15.0 or 15.1 or z/VSE 11.0 or 12.0), you can now benefit from many of the add-on options within your base license without incurring additional costs. This effort enables you to improve your CA Datacom environment through richer, more full-functioned software without expanding budgets.

[WEBCAST] CA Mainframe Resource Intelligence: Mainframe Medicine! An MRI to Reveal Hidden ROI – October 11, 2018 @ 11 a.… 

In medicine, an MRI scan can quickly reveal hidden ailments and allow clinicians to offer actionable insight to get a patient on a path to recovery. Imagine if you had an MRI for your entire mainframe environment and operational processes? Mainframe stakeholders are constantly challenged to prove continuous cost optimization. Luckily for us, the mainframe itself is a hotbed of telemetry data from all aspects – capacity, software, process, systems, and security.


Why not collect, measure, assess and benchmark so you can easily reveal hidden costs, operational gaps and opportunities to transform all aspects of IT delivery? A cloud-delivered SaaS assessment is all about quickly answering the business questions such “will 3X MIPS growth incur a capacity penalty?”
