More on Caravel Insight

IBM z/OS analysis: deep and detailed

Nothing is left out by our tool: the functionality, the architecture, and the main characteristics are reflected in an orderly and consistent manner.
Covering the different languages ​​JCL, COBOL, ASM, PL/I, and all the technologies managed by the z/OS, CICS, jobs, transactions, and their integration with the programs.
In addition, our set of specialized tools allows for performing a deep and detailed exploration of data containers, VSAM, SEQ, DB2.

The end of blackboxes

IBM z/OS systems are large environments built over long periods, with little effort to documentation.

The priority was “to build things that worked quickly.”

However, after 10, 20, or 30 years of useful life and successive teams of developers, it now are systems challenging to understand and even include “black boxes” that nobody owns.

We created Caravel Insight because many essential organizational processes are managed inside it, and it’s time to open them up.

Safer and well based decisions

No technology is left out. All models and versions, whether or not they have coexisted within the same installation.

Caravel Insight explores and documents the entire structure, covering the historical range of an IBM z/OS system, from the first MVS operating systems to the current versions of z/OS.

In this way, it puts at your disposal all the necessary information to make strategic decisions and carry out interventions at any level.

Any undocumented system is a Legacy system.

The difference between a living and a Legacy system is not the age or the technology used. The difference is the knowledge we have of it, the documentation.
A documented system is a living system. We know its architecture, its organization, and we understand its functionality. Thanks to this knowledge, we can intervene, maintain, improve, or modify it. And adapt the system to new needs.

Insight z/OS is the analysis and documentation tool that ensures that we are back in complete control when we lack knowledge, documentation is incomplete, or non-existent.

We will see the information graphically, dynamically, and interactively. Without failing to point out that all the information is storable in standard formats that can be downloaded, in PDF or EXCEL, for example.

In other words: BASE100 tools ensure you have complete control and new opportunities for Legacy IBM z/OS systems.

The information you need: Catalogs and descriptions of our products and services. Many of your questions answered immediately.
