It compiles the code and moves it through the test and productions environments.

What is most valuable?

The main purpose of ChangeMan for my position is to compile code and control versions of the code. I don’t need to submit separate JCL jobs as ChangeMan does this for me. I just need to add the necessary parameters once and it’s done. What’s most valuable to me is the ability to compile the code and move it through the test and productions environments. This is the main reason we use ChangeMan. Otherwise, it would be a lot of manual work.

How has it helped my organization?

The last change I remember is that now you can add a small note for each code compile. In such manner, it is easier to follow what changes are made (line command ‘VC’). Also, in the beginning I was able to use ChangeMan only for default Passport window resolution (45x130), but after several releases, I am able to use it on other Passport program resolutions. That is very good for me, as sometimes I use my monitor in the vertical position.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a better search tool. For now, I prefer search of code in datasets instead of search in ChangeMan. There are a lot of programs stored in datasets. When I am doing maintenance activities, sometimes I need to find a program that has specific words or comments but I don’t know name of the specific program. Then I use the ‘srchfor’ line command. If ChangeMan would have function where I can run a search for all baseline programs, I think I would prefer it instead of going to datasets and checking manually.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with ChangeMan for 3.5 years now.
