RES Solutions

Strategic Direction and IT Management

‘Having a Repository of knowledge that provides detailed, comprehensive information about system components across the enterprise, supplies IT management with an essential instrument of support for strategic decisions. Decisions such as substituting or deleting an obsolete or inefficient component or moving an existing application to a lower cost platform or even the review for the on-going provision of AM contracts deemed too expensive in relation to their quality, can now be made with a greater awareness and certainty of the outcome. In this area RES Suite provides solutions that effectively support IT management in their decisions about the evolution of their systems.

Change Management and Quality

The introduction of automated tools for the management of the change in the lifecycle of applications has reduced the defects caused by errors generated when moving new releases of the software through the different environments. Nevertheless, errors still occur on objects not supported by current change management tools, such as Scripts, JCL and DDL. Added to this are the errors typically encountered from incomplete analysis of the quality of new or modified code.

Res Suite, with its included quality control capabilities, its identification of obsolete objects and its change lifecycle support, can be interfaced with the most popular automated change management tools to effectively provide answers on these and other issues.
