    Has anyone successfully been able to use TADZ or IZSAM to verify data in their system?  I am looking to ensure that all of the machines, products and usage are a reflection of what is running on our system.  Is anyone using this tool for that kind of validation?  Thanks

    Hi, we are using TADZ tool for checking the program used in batch. Normally we have an high number of program cataloged into the production library and managed by change management, but only a part of this program are currently used. The tools support this analysis and support for identify the correct user program list to be changed for performance or for enhancements to new language version.
    this toot, if you don't use the CICS Exit should give you an incomplete information. For CICS you can use the SMF statistics for program usage.
    If you have statically included programs in binding, remember that this tool can identify that programs, and you should Analyze with a linkage editor tools.
