This webinar will be conducted by CIO Steve Pryor, and will focus on our EASY/Exit product.  As always, Steve will take questions at the conclusion of the webinar.

No Assembler Required! – Leveraging DFSMShsm, FTP, RACF, and more with EASY/Exit

Tue, Jul 16, 2019 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

Are you struggling to manage the myriad settings for DFSMShsm? Are datasets still being incorrectly or unnecessarily migrated or are there problems with recalls? Are FTP file transfers mysteriously unsuccessful? As a mainframer, you understand the enormous complexity of modern z/OS systems and the need for centralized, customizable management policies across the system.

Yet the customization and management capabilities available in z/OS subsystems such as DFSMShsm, FTP, TSO, and RACF are often limited. Hand-coded assembler exits and incomprehensible REXX execs that haven’t been updated in years predominate. The lack of assembler language skills has become a critical problem in many shops.

In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate how DTS Software’s EASY/Exit can solve some of these problems. Using the well-known, simple and reliable DTS Policy Rules Engine, EASY/Exit makes centralized standards and detailed customization possible for DFSMShsm, FTP, JES2, TSO commands, and more. At the same time, EASY/Exit eliminates the need for assembler language programming and code updates and rewrites.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Should Exits be Eliminated?
  • The Dynamic Exit Facility in z/OS
  • Maintaining, Updating, and Refreshing User-Written Installation Code and Exits
  • Error Recovery in z/OS Exits
  • Using EASY/Exit to Improve Subsystem Functionality and Performance.
