  2. 2. It Just Got Easier To Monitor Your CICS Applications Introducing PlexSpy Application Status Monitor Cut the time to resolve operational issues affecting CICS applications. Establish the real-time status of your named CICS applications. Get the answers you need quicker than ever before. Can be usefully used by less technically experienced staff to evaluate system status. Less reliance on diminishing numbers of technical specialists. 2 Friday, 17 September 2010
  3. 3. It Just Got Easier To Monitor Your CICS Applications Do your Support Staff know the important aspects of your applications and their status? When issues arise, can you quickly establish the status of the applications you are responsible for supporting? How long does it take you to establish the current status of your CICS applications? Does your business call upon a handful of aging technical specialists to investigate every reported problem? When implementing new applications, have you put in place adequate monitoring facilities? PlexSpy Application Status Monitor will improve your ability to support your CICS Applications. 3 Friday, 17 September 2010
  4. 4. PlexSpy Application Status Monitor Get more from CICSPlex SM ! PlexSpy is itself based on CICS and CICSPlex SM and exploits an Internet Browser user interface. You simply define your named CICS Applications to PlexSpy and specify the aspects of your CICS infrastructure upon which it depends. PlexSpy will then provide instant real-time status information about it. 4 Friday, 17 September 2010
  5. 5. Benefits If there is a problem you will understand it quicker than ever before and be on the road to recovery that much sooner. Less reliance on second line support personnel. Reduced outage / impact to business. Reduced impact = more profits. Quicker problem diagnosis = Less wasted time = more profits. Cut Investigation and Diagnosis time by up to 90 per cent! 5 Friday, 17 September 2010
  6. 6. Strengths and Advantages Unlike traditional CICS Monitors, PlexSpy presents a view of the entire CICS footprint of your application in one display. Across LPARS, across the CICSPlex, even across CICSPlexes. Improved ability to plan changes and support implementations involving CICS Applications and environments. Reduce the workload of the second line CICS support team. If you can use a web browser, you already know how to use PlexSpy. 6 Friday, 17 September 2010
  7. 7. Who can benefit from PlexSpy? System operators Service Managers Application Support System Programmer / CICS Administrators Incident & Recovery Managers Disaster Recovery Managers Perhaps even Business Managers. Any Company or organisation that depends upon CICS applications. 7 Friday, 17 September 2010
  8. 8. How Does PlexSpy Work? PlexSpy is based on CICS and CICSPlex SM and uses a web browser interface. A PlexSpy administrator must define the aspects of the CICS infrastructure upon which your named CICS applications depend. This is done via a web form and applications defined earlier can easily be edited to refine the information that PlexSpy presents to the end user. There follows a number of Screenshots showing various PlexSpy functions. 8 Friday, 17 September 2010
