Problem and change administration, hardware and software inventory tracking
DP Manager is an integrated CICS-based system that provides the tools needed to manage the DP shop more efficiently. DP Manager provides these tools with four major subsystems:
- Hardware Inventory Tracking (HIT)
- Software Inventory Tracking (SIT)
- Problem Report Administration (PRA)
- Change Request Administration (CRA)
For shops on IBM maintenance, DP Manager satisfies the record keeping requirement for the Corporate Service Amendment. HIT and SIT keep track of hardware and software. PRA and CRA allow systems, operations and applications staffs to spend time on problem resolution, maintenance, and development rather than trying to keep up with the stack of change requests and problem reports.
