A new z/OSMF application, Software Update, guides you through SMP/E PTF APPLY operations for all of your SMP/E installed software, whether supplied by IBM or other vendors, for operating system, subsystems and middleware, and other software products. The Software Update application simplifies PTF APPLY operations by providing several ways to organize, review, and ultimately resolve applicable HOLDDATA, interpreting SMP/E results and showing you only the bits of information you need, yet allowing you to dig into the detailed results if necessary, all with the intent of reducing the deep SMP/E skill level required to install software fixes. Come to this session to learn about z/OSMF Software Update and how you can use it to simplify your PTF APPLY operations.
