Extend Micro Focus to include IBM Mainframe and IBM I Environments with Ironstream for Micro Focus
Today’s competitive business landscape demands that organizations have a consolidated view of IT operations for proactive IT management. They need to optimize infrastructure to reduce costs, improve application availability, and enhance service delivery. Additionally, companies need a discovery process that creates and maintains an accurate, up-to-date, single system of record for their IT infrastructure. Achieving these objectives requires a complete picture of the enterprise.

Many companies have chosen Micro Focus as their IT management solution; but if they rely on mainframes or IBM i systems, they cannot get a true enterprise-wide view of their IT landscape.

Precisely Ironstream allows organizations to have a consolidated, enterprise-wide view of their IT operations by including these traditional IBM systems in Micro Focus. This enables IT operators to have visibility into their entire enterprise and improves IT performance and delivers a better experience for their customers.

Ironstream works with Micro Focus to discover the computing resources in the environment and to integrate event and system performance data enabling monitoring of the status and health of their IBM mainframe and IBM i systems.

Our product populates the Micro Focus Universal Discovery Database (UCMDB) with configuration terms (CIs) discovered in IBM mainframe and IBM i environments.
