“We have used the InfoTAPE and InfoDASD program products to validate the requirements for upgrading tape and DASD hardware. The charts have been beneficial in helping us reallocate our current hardware resources. In some cases the information has also helped us eliminate the need for additional hardware purchases. The data we gained by using the InfoTAPE reports allowed us to eliminate the purchase of a new SILO.”
