Posted by Clive Petley on 29/06/20 @ 12:35 PM

New EZ-DB2 Maintenance - CXA00007 has been issued for V10.0

While Syncsort has become Precisely, the mainframe software portfolio continues to use the trusted Syncsort mainframe brand.

The EZ-DB2 suite is now 'Syncsort Optimize DB2' and this APAR introduces the rebranding to V10.0. All panels, menus and jobs have been updated to 'Syncsort Optimize DB2'.

The individual component names have also changed to become part of Precisely's Syncsort mainframe portfolio:

  • Syncsort DB2 Tracer - formerly EZ-Tracer
  • Syncsort DB2 Cache - formerly EZ-Cache
  • Syncsort DB2 Impact Analyzer - formerly EZ-Impact Analyzer
  • Syncsort DB2 Index Analyzer - formerly EZ-Index Analyzer
  • Syncsort DB2 SQL Warehouse - formerly EZ-SQL Warehouse
  • Syncsort DB2 Stats - formerly EZ-Stats
  • Syncsort DB2 Alerts - formerly EZ-Alerts

Note: This APAR is only for EZ-DB2 V10.0 installations - EZ-DB2 V9.1 will not be rebranded and will continue to be the EZ-DB2 suite.
