JCL Checker for all data centers

SmartJCL: cost-effective way to ensure high quality JCL. In order for today’s modern companies to remain competitive, production systems must be highly available and reliable. The Job Control Language (JCL) is an essential component for the smooth operation of the systems. Errors in JCL coding can adversely affect production and cause unwanted delays.

The challenge: Due to its complexity, the potential for errors is high every time new or modified JCLs are introduced. Under deadline and time pressure, it is not always possible to thoroughly test the JCL for all events before the applications are put into production.

How does Smart JCL work?

  • SmartJCL is a JCL management tool that allows you to audit JCL and create error-free JCL. This drastically reduces the number of aborts, which in turn eliminates the risk of losing time in tight batch windows.
  • It also greatly reduces the effort required to search for potential sources of problems under time pressure – often in the middle of the night.
  • SmartJCL also offers integrated scheduler interfaces, such as IBM’s IWS z/OS, a powerful Reformat feature, and a REXX interface for flexible maintenance of your JCL.

SmartJCL is designed for IBM z/OS and IBM System_z, uses interfaces to various z/OS components such as Security Server (RACF), Catalog Access Method Services and System Managed Storage (SMS), and determines the status of IBM DB2 for z/OS to verify whether a DB2 system can be used by a validated job.
