ASG-Sync

 

for Managing Data Batches

ASG-Sync for z/OS and OS/390® manages data batches flowing between local or remote asynchronous IT processes. ASG-Sync streamlines your organization's data batch management by storing and documenting data batches in a separate catalog, which is a supplement to the operating system catalog.

ASG-Sync collects any number of data set generations, as well as stores and manages them so the data set generations are available to applications or end users. With this process, altering your application JCL is not required.

Differentiators

  • Works with RACF to control operator access to data

  • Helps automate IT production by enabling manual tasks (such tape mounting) to be completed in advance

  • Reduces operating costs by allowing data transfers to occur at off-peak times and eliminating processing errors caused by duplicate data

Benefits

  • Identifies every data batch by data set name or data set contents

  • Prevents duplicate data load or data extract operations

  • Notifies job scheduler of data arrival
