Get started with Ironstream today!

Mainframes power mission-critical applications around the world. But many organizations are still flying blind, with no easy way to derive operational intelligence from the vast amounts of machine data generated by these critical systems.

 

Get bigger operational insights from Big Iron!

A simple, scalable, efficient approach

Data streams from the mainframe have not been as accessible as your other data streams when it comes to analytics for IT operational analytics (ITOA), or for security information and event management (SIEM), or for ensuring good service delivery through IT service intelligence (ITSI). They are all quite accessible now – thanks to Ironstream® from Syncsort.

Bring the Distributed and Mainframe Worlds Together

Make “Real Time” Real for Your Organization

With Ironstream, you collect log data from SMF, RMF, Syslog and other z/OS sources, and forward that data in real time to the Splunk® Enterprise analytics platform. That gives you visibility into your z/OS environment as well as your distributed and open-systems environment. Total visibility, in other word. This is done without the need for z/OS monitoring systems or for specialized, scarce, and costly mainframe expertise.

Comprehensive and powerful business intelligence reporting is at hand as users can easily search, analyze, and visualize the mainframe log data along with log data from distributed and open-source systems.

Ironstream also integrates with Splunk’s Enterprise Security and IT Service Intelligence applications. This goes beyond IT operational analytics to give you a firmer grasp of potential security threats in your z/OS environment. It ensures that your critical business services are being delivered on time.

Video: Introducing Ironstream

For decades, organizations have collected, processed, and analyzed transactional data, business ops data, security data, and network data to improve business decisions.

  • But how much do you really know about the health of the critical systems that process all your data?
  • Are they performing optimally?
  • Are they secure?
  • How can you minimize or even prevent system downtime?

You can answer these questions confidently when Syncsort Ironstream is installed with the Splunk Enterprise analytics platform and the Splunk Enterprise Security premium application. What’s more, you can do so from one single monitoring system. No more switching back and forth among different tools and utilities.

Shed Light On All Your Mainframe Operational Data

Stop Flying Blind

 

 

  • Less Complexity, making it easy to collect mainframe data and correlate it with data from other platforms, providing a total view of the IT infrastructure for analysis. And you don’t need mainframe access or mainframe expertise.
  • Crisp, Clear Security Information, making it much easier to identify unauthorized mainframe access and correlate mainframe security threats with threats from distributed systems in Splunk Enterprise Security.
  • Healthier IT Operations through real-time alerts to identify problems in all key environments like CICS, DB2, IMS, MQ, etc., and by monitoring transaction system performance, with views of latency, transactions per sec, exceptions and more.
  • Assurance of High-Quality Delivery of Business Services by providing and correlating Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for critical z/OS components like DB2 and CICS to Splunk IT Service Intelligence.
  • Higher Operational Efficiency by augmenting silo monitors with new technologies that better correlate events across systems, enabling staff to resolve problems faster — "to do more with less."
