BMC Subsystem Optimizer for zEnterprise Helps Mainframe Software License Costs Mitigation

By CIOReview | Monday, September 26, 2016

FREMONT, CA: BMC Software launches BMC Subsystem Optimizer for zEnterprise, a latest software solution which eliminates technical limitations on running CICS, DB2, and IMS across z/OS logical partitions (LPARs) by allowing DB2 and IMS systems to run on LPARs that are not running a local CICS system. Through this subsystem configuration flexibility, customers can optimize their monthly license charge (MLC) costs while maintaining Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Additionally, it also enables redirection of workloads upon system failure.

Features of BMC Subsystem Optimizer for zEnterprise:

It enables data access and communication across LPARs to DB2, IMS and CICS runtime environment. It provides means to redirect data access calls without modifying applications. Data access calls redirection; complements existing software as well as support for BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise.

The other benefits from this software solution are: reduced MLC costs by as much as 20 percent; seamless business performance; enhanced resource usage and efficiency; new configuration enablement on subsystem placement.
