z/OS Mainframe Performance Management made Simple

A challenge many z/OS mainframe performance analysts experience can be summed up by the conflict between priority and time. Analysts only have a limited amount of time to quickly determine what is going wrong, what’s the likely culprit, where should I look first to resolve it, and how can I get there quickly.

Experience and intuition goes a long way in helping to determine this, but for someone who is new to the trade, or even for experts working in a new area or experiencing a new kind of disruption, when time is of the essence then sometimes we need more to go on than intuition.

IntelliMagic Vision addresses this common challenge by simplifying mainframe performance management and allowing analysts to examine their entire z/OS environment in a glance, know where the root cause of a problem is (or where one is developing), and providing quick and easy access to resolve or prevent it.
