z/OS JES Management Software – 13 July 2012
Zero Cost (E)JES Management for zSeries RD&T Environments
In keeping with our support of
innovation and development, Phoenix Software International now
offers to their customers free use of (E)JES for their
Rational Development & Test (RD&T)
environments. RD&T is a low-cost zSeries environment that
helps companies save Mainframe resources when developing and
testing. The IBM Rational Development and Test Environment for
System z creates a personal z/OS Development and Unit Test
environment on each developers desktop or a shared server (E.g. 64
bit Intel compatible processors). Although RD&T incorporates
many IBM zSeries software products for low-cost development usage,
JES spool management or access is not incorporated, and so (E)JES
provides such functionality, with no cost.
(E)JES is Easy to Install
Our customers tell us they can get (E)JES installed in just a few
hours with the easy-to-use installation REXX exec. A
quick-start guide takes you through the process step by step.
(E)JES is Easy to Learn
(E)JES uses commands familiar to any SDSF and ISPF user. After

and viewing the easy-to-use on-line help system, users will know how
to use many of the powerful features not available in any other JES
(E)JES Benefits - It Pays to Switch
(E)JESCAS Multisystem Client/Server Request/Response Model
stores data in local server's private area. Clients obtain
directly from local server using AR mode without server involvement.
Remote server exchange needed only if data is "old" and then only
changed bytes are sent. The result is dramatic CPU savings
with no observable delay.
(E)JES significantly exploits zIIP Processors. CPU
cycles consumed on zIIP don't count towards pricing by IBM WLC and
Phoenix Software International
that provide Sub-Capacity pricing. zIIP's are often
underutilized so there is less contention and processor delay.
zIIP's run full speed, typically faster than CP's on smaller,
Sub-Capacity System z models.
New JES2 customers pay only 1/3 the
price for (E)JES that they are currently paying for SDSF.
Switching to (E)JES
- An Executive Summary
Sometimes it's very easy to confuse Total Cost of Acquisition (TCA)
with Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) costs. With a shared
passion for helping customers reduce costs, both Phoenix Software
International and Value-4IT help customers reduce TCO for the
zSeries Mainframe environment. In the first instance, (E)JES
costs are favourable with SDSF. Furthermore, (E)JES has a
shallow learning curve, superior functionality, improved spool I/O
performance, reduced CPU utilization and nearly all (E)JES function
can be offloaded to the zIIP speciality engine. Therefore when
compared to similar solutions, (E)JES delivers cost, usability and
resource usage benefits, safeguarding both TCA and TCO optimization.
Please view the
(E)JES Executive Summary
document to review (E)JES benefits.
So why wouldn't you switch to (E)JES, to
easily optimize zSeries resources and reduce TCO?

“…a small team of systems programmers set out to do a thorough
testing with both systems, trying to use the options and features
available in as many ways as we could figure out. And as a result of
this, we wrote a very straightforward memo to our management,
stating that (E)JES is much better product than SDSF…”
“(E)JES is simply GREAT! It beats the pants off of SDSF!”
“We’ve been testing (E)JES for JES2 and it looks OUTSTANDING!”
“We haven't found anything that other similar products did that
(E)JES can’t do better.”
“I really think you have a good product here in (E)JES
Workstation and I appreciate its being available.”
“Good folks! Great product! Great support!”
(E)JES is the only JES3 System Management utility endorsed and
recommended by IBM for their world-wide JES3 customer base.
