IBM Tivoli® Advanced Catalog Management for z/OS is designed to provide vital data protection and help increase data availability. It enables IBM Tivoli Monitoring users to view catalog information and initiate catalog functions from a single GUI via integration with the Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP).
In a mainframe environment, delivering fast, reliable access to critical information around the clock is essential. Imagine customers being unable to use an automated teller machine (ATM) system, or an insurance company not being able to send healthcare information to providers. For companies that rely on IBM z/OS® processing environments, catalogs are the fundamental back-end structures that contain critical details to help people and applications locate information in IT systems.
Managing catalogs effectively is vital to protecting your key data assets and driving resilience. With IBM Tivoli Advanced Catalog Management for z/OS software, you can protect the integrity of your critical catalogs and avoid being caught off guard. Tivoli Advanced Catalog Management for z/OS helps identify potential errors before they cause a failure — and helps reduce outage times if a failure occurs.
