EView/390z Mainframe Discovery for UD/UCMDB extends Micro Focus Universal Discovery’s (UD) to include IBM mainframe (z/OS) systems. This tight integration enables organizations to quickly view build and inventory of critical CIs and interrelationships.



IBM Mainframe and IBM i (iSeries-AS/400) environments continue to play a very critical part in today’s corporate IT infrastructures, processing some of the most valued and important data. Organizations need to collect mainframe data, identify mainframe Configuration Items (Cis), and know precisely how they are configured. But the sheer number of interrelated IT components and configurations—as well as the constant changes introduced by business and technology needs— makes manual tracking difficult, if not impossible.

EView/390z Mainframe Discovery enables companies to manage the tasks associated with Change, Incident, Problem and other IT Service Management disciplines for mainframe (z/OS)-based Configuration Items (CIs). Adding the EView/390z Discovery agent to the Micro Focus Universal Discovery (UD) for Micro Focus Universal Configuration Management Database (UCMDB) enables organizations to quickly view and easily build an inventory of critical physical and logical entities along with their interrelationships.

Through seamless integration with the Micro Focus UD software, EView/390z Discovery eliminates the need for high-level CMDB or mainframe/zOS expertise. Thistight integration between Micro Focus and EView provides a comprehensive, accurate and complete view of corporate IT mainframe/zOS infrastructure for service modeling and service impact analysis.Map IT to your businessEView/390z Mainframe Discovery solution, along with Micro Focus UD and UCMDB, allows organizations to include mainframe transactions and IT processes under an consolidated, enterprise wide view. These initiatives help align IT efforts with business requirements and run IT operations more efficiently and effectively.

Achieving an IT Enterprise view of your CIs demands a solution that provides visualization of both distributed and mainframe/zOS resources and uses automation to reduce the risk of errors during discovery and UCMDB repository population.
