We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's stable enough. I haven't noticed any problems since it was installed."

"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.""The scalability is absolutely fine.""Between the tech support and the person I was working with, they have been extraordinary.""​The stability is very reliable. We have not had any issues.""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.""Ability for system diagnostics""Thresholds with alerts are valuable, enabling us to fix a problem before it has an impact.""We have not had any major issues in approximately 15 years."

More SYSVIEW Performance Intelligence Pros →

"We can't see the percentages to see the percentages of the CPU utilized. We should be able to see how much was used by our part of the system. Now, we have to continuously recalculate that information."

More IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON Cons →

"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.""​We are using Datacom as the database system, so maybe a little bit more integration with that.​""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, like installation guides and stuff, put it all in one place.​""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.""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."
