As the number of mainframe applications you need to access increases, so does the need for a session manager. Unless you have a mainframe session manager the only way you can switch from one application to another is to exit the first system entirely and then log in to the second. The process is very time consuming and it all adds up to a poor user experience.
By contrast, our session manager, Tubes for z/OS, provides fast, secure access to all of your mainframe applications – and also IBM i and UNIX systems if required – from a user-friendly menu interface. Users only need to sign in once, and can then switch quickly and easily between applications. Menus can be customized to individual user needs, while web and mobile interfaces open up a new world of possibilities for modernizing your mainframe applications.
If you are thinking about replacing your mainframe session manager – to improve functionality, reduce your costs, or perhaps because your supplier is withdrawing product support – Macro 4 can help.
We are experienced in session manager conversions and the migration process can take as little as a few hours. When you convert to our Tubes session manager you can replicate your current features and interfaces or choose any of our modernization options alongside 3270 access.
