Rocket Cortex-Plan

For automating job planning, scheduling, and monitoring

Rocket-Cortex-Plan provides job scheduling services that simplify application definition, maximize z/OS® resources, and streamline workload execution, thus enabling unattended operations. Extracting job scheduling information from descriptions stored in the production database, Rocket-Cortex-Plan is a sophisticated z/OS scheduler that plans, schedules, submits, and monitors DP production. 

When problems arise, Rocket-Cortex-Plan solves them automatically. After planning and designing strategies that meet your production requirements and a relatively short installation and implementation period, Rocket-Cortex-Plan’s scheduling strategy ensures continuity of teleprocessing (TP) by giving it top priority. Also, the menu structure is logical and intuitive, planning is simple, and Rocket-Cortex-Plan offers a complete set of strategies for postponed jobs and recovering abends without altering processing or files.

Differentiators
Offers easy job planning and an intuitive menu structure
Functions simultaneously with multiple Cortex-Plans and can manage production on heterogeneous systems
Works with ASG-Cortex-Pdb and extracts job dependencies and resources from the production database to minimize job description
