Simplify the Transition to z/OSMF

Broadcom is more committed than ever to your software management experience and assisting in the transition to z/OSMF.

What is the urgency for z/OSMF? Are you ready?

Mainframe vendors have been moving aggressively on packaging products into z/OSMF Software Management Portable Software Instances. In March 2022, Broadcom announced the End of Life (EOL) for Chorus Software Manager (CSM) with an EOL date of June 30, 2023, and going forward, Broadcom plans to invest resources in z/OSMF for software management.

As the z/OS Enterprise transitions to the use of z/OSMF, you will benefit from gaining more z/OSMF product installation and maintenance experience in addition to migrating SMP/E environments into z/OSMF. This will allow you to manage all vendor product maintenance using a single and consistent application. After the migration process completes, you can maintain new z/OSMF software instances using the z/OSMF Software Update function.

Benefits of z/OSMF Migration

Enable implementation of automation, avoiding the need to have a different expert for every vendor
Simplify onboarding new engineers to your site’s infrastructure team
Work with the same community of users, focusing on the same tool to accomplish a similar goal
