Software Change Management

TD/OMS has a proven track record as a product that supports the whole SLS process on the IBM AS/400, System i, from the maintenance of complex application cycles through to the distribution of objects to remote systems.

It simplifies the management of 4GL-tools running on the AS/400, System i with its integrated 4GL support. Defined controlling rules have a determining factor, where even exceptions by component, location and country versions can be set in advance.  The result is less work at the operational level for IT-managers, programmers and application administrators. Through pro-active management, time is gained and errors are prevented. Organisations do not have to change their working method to TD/OMS; TD/OMS adapts to their working method, instead.  Business processes such as Incident Management, Configuration Management, Version Management, Release Management, Life Cycle Management and Software Control & Distribution are the foundation of TD/OMS.

TD/OMS maps the dependencies between software components in a Software Configuration Database. A "defined life cycle" is created around this database. The life cycle reflects the process that is carried out during each change. The process normally consists of the following steps:

These steps are taken repeatedly during the life cycle of a software component. This is an iterative process. This process is repeated until a software component is at the end of its life cycle.

TD OMS Modules


Kernel

Kernel holds all definitions at the application level, a complete survey of the objects to be managed, which includes the corresponding source (if any) and the inter-object relationships.

 


Software Distribution module

With the Software Distribution module you can easily manage your client / server applications. Each object which needs to be managed - applications, clients or components - is monitored from one central location. The module stores all information of that subject in the TD/OMS database. With Software Distribution you can automatically edit (network) applications which run on local or remote PC 's.

 


Green Screen or GUI support

Traditional User Interface or Graphical User Interface. Windows-users with pc connection to the System i, can use the Graphical User Interface or the traditional 'green screens' to manage TD/OMS applications, request, fixes, promote or distribute solutions.

Work Management

Registers each incident, reports the event to the correct person, and ensures a controlled handling. Beside that (in addition), the module creates an incident database in which employees can search for the solution of known problems. Because you decide the routing of a call by yourself, this module connects seamlessly to your helpdesk.

Impact Analysis

An Impact Analysis will ensure that you can define precisely what the consequences will be of a certain change for other (related) components of your software configuration. This way you can decide deliberately whether you are going to change a component or not.

Help Desk

The Help Desk functionality is employed to register every incident with their forthcoming actions. Similar incidents can be collected, settled or sent to a focal point in an organisation. This module can be used locally as well as in a network.

Planning

TD/OMS comes with planning capabilities. It enables you to quickly see what the effect of proposed changes will be on your resources. 

4GL Modules

TD/OMS manages everything that can be seen as an object. Apart, for example, from PC-objects, messages and documents, these also include objects which originate from 4GL-tools. Remain offers 4GL-interfaces for all 4GLs which can be installed on iSeries: LANSA, AS/SET, CA: 2E, CA: Plex, IDDOS and Powerhouse.

Objects Transfer

Object Transfer transfers objects according to the defined workflow and takes care of the database conversion. In principle this module does everything which is needed to implement objects correctly. In the unlikely event of something going wrong, the Object Transfer offers an automatic "fall back". The old situation is restored, so that nothing is lost.

Modules for the Windows Platforms

The basic modules of TD/OMS can be expanded thru a range of additional modules for the Windows platform:

  • Client Management & Distribution
  • Visual LANSA Interface
  • CA: Plex Interface

With these modules programmers can also apply the functionality of TD/OMS for other Windows environments. They can upload components to the iSeries repository. Apart from that, they can distribute software from the iSeries in an unattended (changed) way too, and install them in a Windows environment.

Reporting

Reporting: BIRT. With this new and extremely useful reporting functionality companies can create reports about (almost) any action/data which are captured in the TD/OMS configuration database and have access to data required by accountants, auditors (SOX) and management.
