for Job Setup, Restart, and Rerun Functionality
ASG-Cortex-Prep streamlines job setup in z/OS environments by providing services for entering, formatting, and computing values for job variables. ASG-Cortex-Prep is an interactive system that makes job preparation easier by providing a user-friendly interface and by carrying out most tasks automatically. Job preparation is also made more reliable because no manual intervention with process flows is required, thus avoiding errors.
The graphical interface makes it possible to prepare jobsets (job streams) on a flowchart basis. ASG-Cortex-Prep also provides powerful restart and rerun facilities. It can restart during any step, because the step that interrupted is not always the root of the problem. Further, file and catalog backout is totally automatic and requires no manual intervention.
