BIM-FAQS/CALL - allows the VSE system to trigger a Call List that will call a pager, based on PCS and /or ASO actions. By setting up a predetermined call list the user can specify which pagers receive certain messages under different circumstances. The user can also set predefined responses that the pager can then send back to the VSE system to act upon. .
BIM/FAQS-PCS - BIM-FAQS/PCS (Production Control System) provides state-of-the-art automated scheduling for VSE data centers. BIM-FAQS/PCS triggers an unlimited number of events that have simple and complex dependencies. Scheduling decisions are made accurately and at machine speed. Human error is virtually eliminated. And throughput improves. So you can more easily meet today's demanding service level agreements. .

Increase system throughput.
BIM-FAQS/ASO's Automated Operations features bring together the following to give you the power of automated systems operations:
REXX language, compiler, and editor (99% REXX compatible)
Menus and data panels
CAF - CICS Access Facility. The importance of CICS in VSE installations cannot be overstated. CICS serves as data repository, interactive interface and as the focal point of processing in most VSE shops. Recognizing the critical nature of CICS in VSE/ESA and z/VSE, CSI International is proud to introduce our latest TCP/IP for VSE enhancement--the CICS Access Facility (CAF). The purpose of CAF is to do just what the name implies: provide access to CICS using TCP/IP facilities. .
CSAR - Job Scheduling and Automation for VSE Operating Systems.
CSI/SORT - Fast Sort for VSE Operating Systems.
Data/Miner - Data-Miner is an easy to use, general purpose VSAM I/O interface utility designed to simplify and standardize access to VSAM files. Data-Miner provides full VSAM access from programs written in many fourth generation languages (4GL) such as NATURAL and Focus. Data-Miner also provides a more powerful, easier and more efficient way of accessing VSAM from programs written in third generation languages such as COBOL and PL/I.
GPS for VSE - One of the side effects of introducing TCP/IP for VSE and TN3270 into an SNA network is the loss of VTAM printing capability. For decades, users have been able to use green-screen 327x terminals with 328x print support. However, when the green-screen is replaced with TN3270, the user loses the 328x functionality. The General Print Server (GPS) restores and enhances this function in a TN3270 environment, without requiring you to change any of your applications. .
ODIS - ODIS displays under CICS a wealth of information about the current status of the CICS system, under VSE or MVS, and also displays VSE, VTAM and VSE DL/I status information. Both detail and summary displays are provided, as well as analytic displays used for problem determination. ODIS also has an optional feature called "ODISTRAK" through which ODIS records major CICS statistics and periodically writes them to a VSAM file. Batch programs analyze and report on the recorded data, and also permit archiving of it to tape. .
OVERRIDE - Override is a product which is designed to significantly increase the performance of VSAM in every installation. It does this in a way which is transparent to the programs involved, does not alter any VSAM files and does not make any modifications to VSAM itself. While each installation is different, experience with some installations has shown potential savings to be astounding.
NFS - The Network File System (NFS) is a package of software programs that allows you to mount the VSE file system to any other operating system that runs an NFS client. This means that your PC workstation, your UNIX server, and even your VM system can access any VSE file system object as if that VSE file is on that clients disk drive. Since there are implementations of NFS client for just about every operating system, just about any computer in the world can use VSE files with standard applications that do not perform any client server calls. .RELIANT - Reliant is a family of product components that when used together, provide dataset protection for your shops VSAM datasets. Reliant is comprised of three components:
See/VSE - SeeVSE allows you to analyze the activity and performance of your VSE
and TCP/IP systems from an easy to use PC graphical user interface. SeeVSE will
answer questions like:
What is the current CPU usage of my VSE system?
What was CPU usage yesterday at 3pm?
What was the CPU trend for the last 2 months?
Which partitions are using the most resources? .
SSL - For VSE to participate in a secure e-business strategy, the platform must provide for message integrity, authentication, and confidentiality. We use data encryption, digital signatures, PKI certificates, and secure hash functions to prevent messages from being camouflaged, passwords from being hacked, and transactions from being denied. The services are provided in the Connectivity Systems product line by the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) feature of TCP/IP for VSE. SSL for VSE is an optional product that is fully integrated into TCP/IP for VSE and provides a complete set of services to secure e-business transactions. SSL for VSE implements both the SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 standards for e-business security. Although SSL has been officially renamed to TLS for all future releases, we use SSL as a generic name for both SSL and TLS. .
TAPE/2000 - Automated tape library media Management for complete protection. .k
TCP/IP for VSE - Provides a complete solution for connecting the mainframe to today's Internet world. Our TCP/IP stack provides a seamless interface with the Internet, allowing VSE mainframe applications to participate fully in the global business arena. Built in tools make VSE functions and facilities immediately available to network-attached users. Optional and third-party products bring the full power and reliability of mainframe computing to the e-Commerce world. .
VSHARE - V-Share allows multiple programs to update the same VSAM file simultaneously. To accomplish this, V-Share intercepts batch VSAM requests and ships the requests to a CICS/VSE region (hereafter just "CICS region"). CICS then updates the file on behalf of the batch jobs. By giving batch jobs the ability to update files within CICS, V-Share makes CICS the VSAM data manager. .
VSUM - VSUM provides powerful design, monitoring and tuning capabilities for VSE VSAM catalogs and data sets. VSUM provides five major functions, which will simplify many of the routine and complex tasks necessary for effective VSAM data set design and management. VSUM can be executed in either TSO/ISPF or batch mode. .
