We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Stability is probably the best out-of-the-box. Put it in, set it up, and you leave it alone. It works wonderfully.""It's very flexible. You can customize what you need to, which is good. For example, you can do your own coding inside the tool, make your own scripting tooling.""With the automation pieces we can bring this region up or take this region down, and it allows us to always meet our time critical requirements.""Once automatic IPL has been defined, anyone can perform an IPL with very little intervention. We know that all of the components will be started correctly.""​It is an easy product to use and it is stable.""​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.""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.""OPS/REXX is valuable because it allows us almost unlimited flexibility in automating our system."

"We have not had any major issues in approximately 15 years.""​The stability is very reliable. We have not had any issues.""It is easy to see if anything is wrong. The queues on the system are fast, and it is very intuitive to locate something.""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.""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.""The scalability is absolutely fine.""Thresholds with alerts are valuable, enabling us to fix a problem before it has an impact.""Between the tech support and the person I was working with, they have been extraordinary."

Cons
"Because of its age, it's a little bit difficult to modernize some of the integrations and some of the functions.""One thing that comes to mind is the MQ interface. The last time we tried to use it, it seemed a little clunky.""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 definitely needs more web-based interface, to be more mobile-open. More APIs, more open source to it.""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.""Some of the command sequences are too long."

"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.""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.""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.""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."
