Having a tool at your disposal that doesn’t require years to learn how to use overcomes one of the steepest initial barriers to effective analysis and greatly expedites learning.

Todd Havekost has been in the z/OS performance and capacity industry for almost 40 years, but until recently had learned very little about cryptographic processing performance. With easy access to the data, he was able to quickly come up to speed.

This capability helps newer analysts get up to speed more quickly and also enables experienced analysts to expand their expertise and learn new areas.
