Current Products

NEON Database Activity Monitor

The NEON Database Activity Monitor for DB2 for z/OS provides auditing focused monitoring of DB2 for z/OS activity. The NEON Database Activity Monitor is licensed as OEM technology to Imperva and Application Security (AppSec). NEON does not sell Database Activity Monitor directly. An older version of this technology was licensed to Guardium, acquired by IBM in late 2009.

MoveOP Migration Readiness Master

Migration Readiness Master (MRM) automates the analysis of servers that are candidates for migration to other platforms. MRM uses agent-less methods to efficiently collect data from the candidate servers and compares it to one or more target platforms for migration. The primary target platforms are Linux based and includes distributions widely in the enterprise on both Intel architecture or IBM zSeries. The migration analysis produces a "readiness score" to assess relative difficulty of migrating each server to the target. Detailed data is reported to explain the score so that system administrators can take whatever action is necessary to execute the migration.

Former NEON products

NEON IMS Database Utilities (acquired by BMC Software)

The NEON IMS Database Utilities were acquired by BMC Software June 16, 2011.[2]

The NEON IMS Utilities [3] provide the tools needed to manage and maintain IMS databases. With an integrated set of products it supports both IMS full function and Fast Path DEBD databases.

NEON zPrime™ (withdrawn)

NEON zPrime,[4][5] was a software product introduced on June 30, 2009 that helped users to shift tasks from the general purpose processor(s) to zIIP (System z Integrated Information Processor) or zAAP (System z Application Assist Processor) specialty processors within the mainframe.[6] NEON zPrime automatically identified z/OS workloads that could be redirected to specialty processors. Reducing the utilization of general purpose processors might have reduced the monthly charges for certain IBM software products whose cost was related to general purpose processor utilization.,[7][8]

[9] As of May 31, 2011, Neon has withdrawn zPrime from marketing as part of its settlement of its lawsuit with IBM.
