Many z/OS mainframe installations must now take action as they approach the end of their legacy maintenance terms for the CA TSOPLUS software, which was deemed “end of life” by CA Technologies in 2010.
Tone’s STEPLIB-Rx solution expertly fills this void with an easy to deploy, transparent TSOPLUS alternative that replaces key functionality of the TSOPLUS product, including the STEPLIBX Dynamic STEPLIB allocation capabilities, the on-demand application facility – ODAs, and extended allocations.
Replace TSOPLUS Painlessly with STEPLIB-Rx Conversion Aids
Tone’s STEPLIB-Rx solution includes utilities to seamlessly transition the existing TSOPLUS environment to the new STEPLIB-Rx technology by intelligently translating the existing STEPLIBX allocations imbedded in numerous CLISTs and REXX Execs throughout your environment.
Using STEPLIB-Rx, users avoid the error-prone task of editing and converting existing allocations, and eliminate the need to perform time consuming, complex manual conversions or re-implementations. As a result, the transition from TSOPLUS to Tone’s STEPLIB-Rx is painless for the busy systems programming staff, and transparent to the TSO and ISPF user communities of busy z/OS shops.
Further, STEPLIB-Rx provides the critical TSOPLUS replacement functionality in one cohesive solution, simplifying installation, migration, and ongoing maintenance of the z/OS environment.
