As Data Centers are constantly evolving, they are becoming more and more complex. Monitoring and execution of daily, weekly or even monthly tasks are becoming even more difficult for the typical IT administrator or manager. We are constantly hearing terms such as 'automation' and 'lights out' being thrown into the mix more often than not. Receiving ample notifications on failed overnight processes or exceptions thrown by critical programs are vitally important for timely remediation with minimal or no impact on the next production window.
Job Control Language (JCL) continues to play a key role within this new development paradigm. Yet, as DevOps and “Shift Left” initiatives place greater emphasis on finding and fixing defects earlier in the testing process, the lack of inherent JCL testing tools within the IDE framework is painfully apparent. The capability to proactively perform a run-time simulation of the Production JCL environment and easily search and view output from test runs, is critical to achieving quality sooner and avoiding the costs associated with JCL syntax and runtime errors.
