We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The report writer in TMON is a very good add-on for batch reports which weren't available in OmegaMon/CICS."

"Ability for system diagnostics""I also really appreciated all the work that everybody did to get it functional for JES3, and they continue to do so, even though IBM said they are going to do away with JES3.""​The stability is very reliable. We have not had any issues.""We have not had any major issues in approximately 15 years.""Thresholds with alerts are valuable, enabling us to fix a problem before it has an impact.""I use most of the SMS space management extensively, but also the features that enable me to look at dumps and different dataset allocations to the system, and performance data from the queueing and delays.""When we changed to JES3, the programmers didn't have to know anything. The product provided the same interface with the same look and feel.""It is easy to see if anything is wrong. The queues on the system are fast, and it is very intuitive to locate something."

"We're like it to be possible to move some more workload to our ZIIP processors to save us some billing for general workload."

"The documentation, like installation guides and stuff, put it all in one place.​""​We are using Datacom as the database system, so maybe a little bit more integration with that.​""They are already working on improvements. One of them is the operational intelligence, which is a lot of stuff I am trying to learn and work on right now, which SYSVIEW reports to that all the system things which are going on.""It confuses a lot of people because there are so many features, but when they see me bouncing around they say, "I didn't know it did that, I didn't know it did that." It takes a long time to find all the different features that are available.""The things that I would think about would be in relation to JES3. However, I don't know if they'll be able to do much more with that because I don't know how much longer IBM is going to be supporting JES3. So I can understand not doing additional development. But if I were to suggest something it would be the JES3 initiators, the JES3 queues.""The documentation format could be better. I noticed with the last release that all of the manuals were bundled into one. It used to have a separate installation guide, user guide, etc.""If a unit of work ID is associated with a CICS, a DB2, and a MQ transaction, and having that capability correlate to those different technologies via one business application transaction which would be beneficial."

    Top Answer:We found that, in comparison, BMC and OmegeMon were expensive.
    Top Answer:It's too early to say what improvements are needed, but I can only say we are happy with our decision to move to TMON. We haven't looked at the graphic tools so far, but they're on our to-do list for… more »
