EZReport for OPS/MVS

Overview

EZReport Creates detailed management reports for better analysis and "big picture" oversight of customer's data center automation efforts.

CA-OPS/MVS contains minimal built-in reporting, focused on short-term internal details, not business goals.

DB2 support enables Automation data to be viewed in web-based dashboards.
