SCP Australia


DataKinetics Partnership

SCP is very pleased to announce a renewal of DataKinetics AutoSoftCapping (ASC) licence here in Sydney. ASC is a z/OS systems management solution for IBM z Systems mainframes that optimizes system performance. ASC has allowed our customer to more efficiently control their workload license charges by dynamically modifying the LPARs defined capacity limits taking into account the behavior and needs of all their LPAR’s.

For this SCP customer, the real value is to display the current z/OS systems performance in real time, so that for instance, applications developers can immediately see why their response time has increased. This display, one of many is set up very easily, has dramatically reduced user calls to the customers Help Desk and freed up Systems Programmers valuable time responding to these immediate calls. The customer has stated “There is good ISV software out there, however ASC is great software”.

With many successful migrations under their belt, FBDA from Vancouver in Canada, has many unique proven features and functions, all supported by excellent references.

Finding “hard to find” resources

We are increasingly being asked to search for “hard to find” resources, as customers search for more specialist skills, who do not fit into the day to day advertised job roles. These include Chinese speaking IBM z Systems specialists, Privacy Act specialists or just COBOL skills.

We are proud of our many years diverse experience to be able to firstly understand the customer’s exact requirements and then check with our many, many personal contacts in the industry to verify the role and then search. Please the more unusual the better, why not give us a try?

A great start to 2014

We have fielded many new enquiries and opportunities. Performance monitoring and capacity planning are keeping us busy, as are simple infrastructure updates. We continue to engage with our partners, who are also finding business increasing. So maybe 2013 was just a very tough year?

We will continue to expand into Asia, including our partners, and look forward to providing z Systems services
