Product/service information:
This is pure high-performance in-memory technology for mainframes that can solve batch processing, throughput capacity, mobile traffic, resource usage, rules processing and other challenges IT organizations face in their mainframe datacenters. tableBASE accelerates Db2 applications, improves mainframe application performance, makes Db2 data more accessible, reduces CPU and MSU usage, and helps to reduce operational expense. All this without the need to make changes to your Db2 database or your application logic. Preparing for IBM’s Tailored Fit Pricing (TFP): TFP brings cost certainty to mainframe shops interested in controlling their yearly mainframe spend. By first lowering your R4HA usage baseline with tableBASE, you can get the most out of TFP. Using tableBASE will lower the resource usage baseline—allowing you to benefit more from future growth pricing (which comes at a sharply reduced rate; much lower than your committed MSU rate). Combining tableBASE and TFP is a sure-fire way to control costs, and to find more capacity for your growing workloads.

Company profile:
Tone Software develops and markets business software to increase z/OS mainframe efficiency and modernize host operations, reduce z/OS support costs, and increase the productivity of z/OS IT teams responsible for critical business applications.

Based in Anaheim, California, TONE is a privately owned company that answers to customers, not shareholders. Leveraging more than 40 years of extensive mainframe expertise, TONE is committed to delivering quality z/OS software and exceptional support and service to every client.

TONE products are marketed and supported throughout North America, Europe, and Australia through the Anaheim headquarters and international agents. Tone’s solutions include:

  • OMC-FLASH JES2, JES3, and JES3plus SPOOL viewing and management
  • JES2Mail, JES2FTP, Mail2ZOS and CICS2PDF z/OS output transformation and electronic delivery solutions
  • OMC-PRINT and OMC-TCP/IP host VTAM and TCP/IP output routing and printing
  • DYNA-STEP dynamic STEPLIB and ISPF library management
  • TRX TSO resource and performance management

TONE’s mainframe solutions modernize host operations, enabling users to manage and control the z/OS, TSO, JES2, JES3, JES3plus and VTAM infrastructure. Tone’s solutions reduce system resource consumption, increase host productivity, and lower operational costs. A summary of Tone’s mainframe solutions follows:

  • OMC-FLASH JES spool management users can view and control jobs, datasets, output, devices, operations, resources, and workflow across the JES2, JES3 and JES3plus environment, all with one seamless solution.
  • JES2Mail, JES2FTP, Mail2ZOS and CICS2PDF transform z/OS output into customized PDF, HTML or CSV, then securely delivers the output via Email, FTP, RSS, or the cloud, all with few or no host changes.
  • OMC-PRINT and OMC-TCP/IP host output management solutions route and print z/OS output directly from JES to VTAM and TCP/ IP printers, and provide full control of enterprise- wide print activity.
  • DYNA-STEP Dynamic STEPLIB allocation and ISPF library management saves time and resources, reduces overhead, speeds user logons, reduces LOGON PROC maintenance, and expedites migrations from test to production. DYNA-STEP replaces unsupported STEPLIB tools and shareware with no re-coding.
  • TRX TSO performance management solution reduces TSO resource consumption, improves response times, reduces system overhead, and improves TSO user productivity.
