Why You Need a Network Documentation Library; Getting Hands on With Db2 for z/OS

Welcome to the newly redesigned Z EXTRA. It’s got the same types of great content you expected from Mainframe EXTRA but with a new streamlined look that is easier to navigate. As an added bonus, we’ll be giving you three Z EXTRA newsletters each month, along with the regular roundup of Marketplace news and offerings from business partners, the fourth Tuesday of each month.

Why It’s Important to Create a Library of Network Documentation
Documentation isn’t only important for programming; it’s vital for all of IT, including networks. It’s an unpopular task because organizations are action-oriented and objective-driven, including network management. In the short-term, this mindset makes sense, but in the long-term there’s a high price to be paid. Rewriting that student records system took a lot longer because it was a complete restart. Not only did programs have to be re-worked, so did every aspect of the application. Similarly, a network that doesn’t track performance, errors, availability and resolutions is condemned to repeat them over and over, at the expense of availability, response time and staff productivity.
