Insightful reporting and planning to reduce MLC costs Save 5% to 20% or more of MLC charges with our patent pending technology
BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise incorporates the complexity of MLC pricing into an easy to use solution for actively managing MLC costs. By analyzing utilization and cost data, BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise portrays the system peaks and cost drivers so you can identify cost-reducing strategies. Robust graphical reporting gets you started and powerful "what-if" planning capabilities let you test-drive changes and see the cost impacts those might have before you commit to any changes.
If you think MLC costs need optimizing, but have concluded that it is too complex, takes too much time and effort, or that you can’t really impact the costs, BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise will change your mind.
What BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise does:
Analyzes system and cost data, identifies peaks for MLC software products, by LPAR and CPC
Presents cost information in intuitive and interactive graphical forms
Supports investigation of cost reduction alternatives through "what-if" evaluations of capping, workload placement, and workload volume changes
Incorporates knowledge of the range of MLC pricing metrics, including zNALC, AWLC, AEWLC, EWLC, FWLC, VWLC, Sysplex pricing and optional priced features
Identifies specific types of workloads driving your peaks, characterized by Workload Importance, Service Classes, Subsystem Address Spaces, WLM policy and Suites (user-defined groupings of batch work)
With BMC Cost Analyzer for zEnterprise you will:
Understand the impact of peaks and business activity on mainframe MLC costs
Have transparent reporting and governance of mainframe costs
Make informed decisions about cost-reduction alternatives
