BMC AMI Datastream for z/OS: Fundamentals Using (WBT)

For many large organizations, one or more IBM z/OS mainframes constitute a strategic capital investment for mission-critical applications, processes, and data. With security information and event management (SIEM) software platforms existing predominantly in distributed environments, the AMI Datastream for z/OS allows organizations to include mainframe event log data for a unified, multi-platform view of enterprise security event data in a single console. BMC AMI Datastream for z/OS is an agent program that you install and run on one or more LPARs to monitor system activity, collect process, and deliver SMF records, such as RACF, ACF2, Top Secret, TCP/IP, CICS, IMS, and other z/OS system and application events to your distributed SIEM in real-time.

In this course, the system programmers will learn in detail about the value of SIEM, the modify, start, and stop commands using the medium of engaging in self-paced web-based learning and guided simulations to better grasp concepts.
