Introduction Overview of the COPE Solution The family of COPE products is designed to enhance productivity, simplify administration and main- tenance, and reduce machine resource requirements. Each product in the family addresses a dis- tinct development environment, allowing you to select those products which apply to your particular configuration. When more than one product is installed, the products are architects to cooperate and communicate with one another, eliminating duplicate maintenance efforts across different prod- ucts.Why use COPE? How does a leading financial software services company provide basically the same software to a dozen different clients, but with intricate custom-made features for each client?

The company installed COPE for IMS, and found that it could support a dozen customized copies of their current system and run them simultaneously on a single IBM mainframe. Their programmers can now compile and test in any of the dozen test environments simultaneously, and without interfering with each other.How can a large manufacturing software services company effectively demonstrate their system to clients if every time one of the demonst...</p>
