Some exciting news has arisen recently with BMC Software product installation. BMC has made its solutions for z Systems™ much easier to install. This applies to DB2 solutions, IMS solutions, and MainView monitoring products.


The installation process and the configuration process (formerly known as customization) are now separated from one other. This separation makes it easier for one person to perform installation tasks and another person to perform configuration tasks.

The redesigned Installation System involves fewer panels, significantly reducing installation and configuration time. Also, the redesigned user interface features:

  • Menus that present tasks in sequential order
  • Consistent navigation and function keys
  • Highlighting for available options
  • Improved online Help

I think you’ll like this new installation facility. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
