Impact is an application that doesn't come with many built-in libraries, though they've thrown some JavaScript in, and this is useful for integrating with other Intel applications, where we can invoke, consume, and integrate other data sources as well. I can recommend Netcool/Impact because it's the perfect solution when it comes to invoking ISPF APA and using ISPF integration throughout the rest of your other products. I would rate IBM Tivoli NetCool Impact an eight out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with IBM. I'd recommend the solution. It can connect to any type of DB and we're able to fetch any number of things. That said, we have run into connectivity issues occasionally. As a developer, I'd rate it eight out of ten.
