Z Capacity Management without SAS and MXG

I have just commented the following post on LinkedIn:

"Is there anyone using anything else besides SAS or SAS assisted tools for analyzing Z/OS SMF data? If so, what are you using?"

I have involved in some IBM activity to offer an alternative (to SAS) solution to process and analyze SMF data by using TDS + SPSS + COGNOS (all IBM tools).

My part of this is to offer SETDS elements to include in the out-of-box COGNOS (and potentially SPSS) reportingsuch as IT Control Charts, EV based anomaly and recent trend detection.

  1. It would not surprise me to see IBM develop an SMF decoding tool with SPSS and Cognos or DB2.
