Frequently Asked Questions

ProcMan's workflow manager efficiently progresses your objects through stages like Development, Testing, and Production, applying real-time, rule-based changes to meet each stage's unique demands. Its capacity to integrate with any system, thanks to universal interfaces, streamlines automation across z/OS and distributed systems alike. Customize workflows, forms, and rules to fit your specific management needs without altering your existing system infrastructure. With ProcMan, you gain a tool that not only enhances operational efficiency but also provides a transparent, secure audit trail that auditors will value for its clarity and comprehensiveness.

Production changes often start with informal methods like phone calls, emails, or face-to-face interactions, where developers provide JCL, scripts, or other materials susceptible to loss or rapid obsolescence. Current systems for logging these requests may only have freeform text fields, lacking precise detail and organization. Without standard protocols, operations planners may make quick, unverified manual adjustments, leading to misalignment within teams and causing delays in resolving issues, particularly when members are absent or remote. When deploying entire "packages" into production, the chance of missing elements is high. Remembering the specifics of who requested changes, their timing, or their purpose can be difficult, increasing the likelihood of confusion and errors.

ProcMan's web-based interface makes it accessible to a wide array of IT-related personnel, including business department members, programmers, testers, production planners, operators, and administrators.
