A simplified workflow for system time management

IBM z14 is the newest generation mainframe from IBM Z, capable of running more than 12 billion encrypted transactions per day on a single system. The z14 was introduced on July 17, 2017.

In December of 2015, I was brought on the team as the User Experience Designer to lead the design of new workflows that improve the way mainframe operators ensure rapid data sharing and synchronization between multiple systems. Specifically, my work focused on the Server Time Protocol feature on the Hardware Management Console (HMC).

My redesign, known as Manage System Time, replaced the old System Sysplex Time on the HMC. The new design provides an interactive visual representation of configuration plans, linear workflows with guidance, and a single point of system time management for multiple systems.

This project features ongoing design effort and will be updated with the delivery release in the fall.
