The 7500 does not use NCP to connect to the mainframe, but requires the latest version of the VTAM
AutoOPERATOR captures and filters events from tools such as VTAM
sessions and OS/390 subsystems such as MQSeries, IMS, CICS TS, and DB2, coordinating automation across all the different images in a Parallel Sysplex or a traditional mainframe environment.
The Netcool/Mainframe Connection captures and filters event streams from popular tools such as Candle Omegamon and CA-Netspy, as well as IBM mainframe alerts from VTAM
sessions and MVS subsystems, sending this data to the Netcool ObjectServer.
EnterWEB is accessed as a VTAM
application without relying on CICS for access.
Connectivity to VM and VSE systems is enabled with TCP/IP, VTAM
or MQ Series.
