  • -------------  ENHANCEMENTS  -------------
    The new Software Management task, previously named the
    Deployment task, contains the existing software deployment
    functions along with new software management functions.
    Briefly, the Software Management task allows you to view details
    about your software inventory, including installed products,
    features, FMIDs, data sets, deployments, and SYSMODs. In
    addition, support has been added for the following browsers:
    Mozilla Firefox ESR 10 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.
    
    More specifically, the following new actions have been added to
    the z/OSMF Software Management task.
    
    1. View a list of the products, features, FMIDs, and data sets
       that are included in your software instances.  You can use
       this information to identify which software instances, data
       sets, or systems might be impacted if you upgrade a product;
       to determine if you have the prerequisites installed for a
       specific function; and, to determine which data sets will be
       deployed during a deployment.
    
    2. View details about your installed products.  For example, you
       can do the following:
    
       - View a list of all the products contained in your software
         instances.
    
       - Determine which products are nearing or have reached end
         of service support.
    
       - Identify which software instances contain a product and
           will be affected by any changes to the product.
    
       You can use this information to identify which products need
       to be ordered for a future upgrade and to provide evidence
       of what is installed to an auditor or procurement team.
    
    3. Generate reports about your software.  For example, you can
       generate the following reports:
    
       - End of Service - Helps you determine if any of the
         products contained in your software instances are
         approaching or have reached end of service support.
    
       - Missing Critical Service - Helps you determine if any
         unresolved PE PTFs, HIPERs, or other exception SYSMODs
         identified by ERROR HOLDDATA are contained in your
         software instances, and helps you identify the SYSMODs
         that will resolve those exceptions.
    
       - Missing FIXCAT SYSMODs - Helps you identify any
         unsatisfied hardware or software requisites that are
         required for a specific category of software fixes.
    
       - Software Instance Comparison - Helps you determine the
         functional and service differences between two software
         instances.
    
       - Software Instance Validation - Helps you verify that the
         software libraries associated with a software instance
         exist and contain the appropriate parts.
    
       - SYSMOD Search - Helps you determine if your software
        instances contain the SYSMODs in which you are interested.
