Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The report writer in TMON is a very good add-on for batch reports which weren't available in OmegaMon/CICS."
"The integration of IMS commands is very useful, because you do not have to switch to another tool to problem solve solutions."
"Enabled me to solve production problems faster or even avoid them preemptively with warnings."
 

Cons

"We're like it to be possible to move some more workload to our ZIIP processors to save us some billing for general workload."
"More visualisation and support for mobile devices would be good."
"An expansion for distributed systems would be great, but probably not workable."
