Stretched thin, application programmers have not had time to update their JCL to account for the exponential growth in data allocations. There are significant constraints being placed on storage resources, both hardware and personnel - those magnify the fallout from out of space conditions, which are outages and costly missed SLAs for the business.
BMC MainView SRM StopX37/II provides measures to track problem allocations. Users of all skill levels can easily code remedies that allow allocation processes to execute without the need for manual intervention - mitigating problems with the infrastructure or application space request shortfalls. Business applications are safe from space related outages!
