HORIZONT Product IWS/Audit
IWS/Audit tracks and records all changes to the IWS z/OS database. The current plan, the long-term plan and the JS file of “IWS for z/OS”. IWS/Audit makes it easy to detect changes, insertions and deletions.
You can easily reset data to a previous revision level – even if the object has been deleted. Compare older data versions with current definitions to find errors faster.
A convenient dialog program makes it easy to search for specific data records using a variety of search criteria. In addition, all information can be written in HTML files, which can then be distributed over the Internet or in your own company intranet.
HORIZONT Product IWS/BatchAD
This useful interface to the IWS z/OS definition databases performs mass changes, cloning and/or maintenance in batch mode. Productivity is increased by minimizing the dialog usage.
IWS/BatchAD is especially useful in test environments and allows you to move definitions from test to production and vice versa. During data transfer all fields can be changed. Example: “Copy all applications created today by user P390G by changing all workstations P* to T*”.
IWS/BatchAD is easy to install and operate. The user does not need any programming knowledge. IWS/BatchAD works with easy to understand control instructions. IWS/BatchAD is normally used in batch mode. But you can also use IWS/BatchAD in REXX or CLIST functions, and integrate it into command line programs or di
HORIZONT Product IWS/BatchCP
IWS/BatchCP is an add-on to IWS z/OS. It is designed to help you automate your production planning and control. It modifies multiple events, operations, special resources and external and internal dependencies in batch mode.
IWS/BatchCP increases the productivity of your employees by automating repetitive tasks. It helps you to avoid manual and error-prone IWS dialogs. IWS/BatchCP is especially useful for testing purposes. Set date fields (date of receipt of predecessors, events, deadlines) to any date in the future. Generate JCL for any date in the future, or simulate the replacement of TWS variables.
With IWS/BatchCP users do not need any programming knowledge, because IWS/BatchCP works with easy to understand control instructions and is usually started in batch mode. However, IWS/BatchCP can also be used e.g. in REXX programs and thus be integrated into any existing application.
