The Future of Automated JCL Management
JED provides fully automated JCL management for today's z/OS data centers.  JCL validation, JCL standards enforcement, JCL reformatting, JCL syntax checking, JCL maintenance, conversions and tuning are now possible, automatically!  Robust, yet simple to use, JED provides a flexible, automated method to address the labor-intensive tasks associated with the JCL change lifecycle. JED significantly improves operations and production control environments, resulting in improved SLAs.  JED is destined to become the premier automated JCL management product on the market.

JED has been designed to be JCL intelligent.  Incorporating JED into DCMS CCS (Change Control System) or other automated change control tool permits the management and control of JCL components in the change lifecycle to be fully automated.  JED simplifies JCL management and quality assurance, resulting in improved productivity and reliability for the entire Information Technology department.

JED insures that the JCL entering your production environment is logically and syntactically error-free and will execute properly.

New with Version 6.0!     The JED Cross Reference and query system  (JED XREF).
JED XREF is a powerful online cross reference facility that provides complete up-to-the-minute information on program and JCL component relationships. JED XREF allows the user to quickly and accurately perform impact analysis reviews showing the effect of updating a particular program or JCL component. For example, you can quickly determine such things as which jobs execute a particular program, or which programs access a particular dataset, or which programs use a particular copybook or ++Include module, or which jobs, procs and programs will be impacted if you change a particular dataset. The list of relationships maintained by JED XREF is long and is continuously growing. JED XREF allows analysts to perform error free change impact analysis in seconds rather than hours or days.
