Note: A new draft version of this publication is now available
This IBM® Redbooks® publication will help you install, configure and use the IBM z/OS® Management Facility (z/OSMF). IBM z/OS Management Facility (z/OSMF) is a new product for z/OS that will simplify, optimize and modernize the z/OS system programmer experience.
z/OSMF delivers solutions in a task-oriented, web-browser-based user interface with integrated user assistance. The goal of z/OS Management Facility is to improve system programmer productivity, and make functions easier to understand and use. This makes system programmers more productive as quickly as possible with the least amount of training. You can automate tasks, reduce the learning curve, and improve productivity through a modern, simplified, and intuitive task-based, browser-based interface.
The z/OSMF works with a mixed skills workforce: it is suited both for professionals who are new to z/OS and those already skilled on z/OS. Each professional has their own needs and faces their own challenges. A novice system programmer might need to understand the 'big picture' and how procedures are done. A novice will need to get documentation on procedures and tasks, and implement them according to the rules of the enterprise. The experienced system programmer, on the other hand, has the knowledge on tasks and procedures, so the goal is to make their functions less error prone and easier. This allows them to be more productive and contribute more to their business.
z/OS has been delivering simplification since it was introduced, but z/OSMF brings a new dimension and focus to simplification. z/OSMF will simplify and modernize the user experience across the board and help make the pertinent information available readily available and easily accessible.
