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

"​The service has been wonderful. I like the people that I have had to deal with. The process is very straightforward. I call or use the website.""If something breaks and it goes down when it's not supposed to, automation brings it right back up.""It reduces the number of repetitive motions required by a human to respond to the system.""It's very secure, because it's a legacy application.""It allows us to respond faster to issues. If there are issues that come out, we're able to capture a message and alert somebody about it.""Their technical support is incredible, immediately responsive, and even if it is not updated to Level 2 support sometimes, they chip in providing more detailed answers and options to fix the problem.""It's a very stable product. I very much like the SSM stuff in it. The rules engine, it's awesome.""I can and interrupt what's going on, bring a job down if I need to, and bring it back up."

"An expansion for distributed systems would be great, but probably not workable.""More visualisation and support for mobile devices would be good."

More BMC MainView Cons →

"The further expansion of the mainframe teamcenter interface. Also, the web services support is something that I am looking into.""The reason sometimes it is not stable, we do not have the expertise to write the script.​""​It’s a complex product. The initial installation is easy, but implementing various functions is a constant process.​""The interfaces to USS, CA UIM could be better. CA Common Services interfaces - namely Zdata Mover, Zmessage Service, Zdatacolletcor - are poorly documented.""The GUI interface could be improved, but that is coming. They are working on that.""Scalability is zero. It cannot be scaled because of its age.""One thing that comes to mind is the MQ interface. The last time we tried to use it, it seemed a little clunky.""Performing a stop/restart of OPS/MVS could be a little smoother. Without special coding, some undesired tasks will be started and some necessary tasks will be stopped if we have to bounce OPS/MVS during the day."
