Our commitment to our customers, our employees, our suppliers and other partners is very simple: “Timeless Reliability”. TSI is a 30-year old company in an industry where 96% of companies don’t survive even 10 years! We have been able to not only just survive but also continuously grow over those 30 years.
How have we been able to do that?
Because at our core, we are an engineering company. Our engineering is impeccably reliable. We abide by our promises and deliver on our commitments. Predictable reliability can never be achieved through passive regurgitation of what has worked in the past. We have always delivered top-notch quality while continually innovating. We remain true to our values. Our behavior is consistent and predictable.
The ‘timeless’ comes from the fact that we do not play to the gallery for short-term returns. We earn respect by always doing what’s right for our customer in the long-term.
GI/TERM is very useful to log into multiple places at one time and seeing the virtual printer data is very easy to view and to cut and paste into another document.
TPF/GI – It’s great because once you get the hang of it you have a way to see variables and specific data elements as you trace. Very helpful with troubleshooting / debugging problems.
TPF/GI I like having all of the information about Data Levels and Variables one click away.
I like TPF/IDE as an editor as it is much more friendly than VM tools.
SourceView is great because I can be looking at the specific line of code being executed and still see what is happening to all my work blocks, ecb area, etc.
I have been a QA programmer in TPF for over 15 years, so I am constantly trying to recreate and fix problems. CMSTPF was a huge step forward in problem-solving. It’s tracing abilities for single-ECB functions have helped me solve many problems that would have been very difficult in a typical lab environment. Obviously, TPF/GI has those same valuable tracing tools, but with the added bonus of a friendly Windows interface.
I use GI/TERM daily. What I like the most is the ability to work with multiple sessions while still having access to TPF at the same time. It makes troubleshooting much easier.
I like TPF/IDE because it allows me to be able to use one tool to view files on all of the different platforms that we have. I also like TPF/IDE because it provides a way to easily move files from one platform to another.
As someone who had spent many years waiting for program listings to print in order to instruction trace segments, the Source View option has saved many hours and increased productivity immensely.
TPF/GI is an awesome test tool! the new T-REX features make system effeciency enhancements easy to quantify and justify. They also assist us QA-types with problem investigation and solution. I use SourceView exclusively with initial testing of code revisions because of it’s ability to pinpoint problems and show me variable values. TPF/IDE is a must-have tool for all C-programmers.
CMSTPF – Its your own local copy of database.. Problems? Dumps?.. No worries.. play with it and get it tested.. Great tool for initial testing phase.
I use TPF/GI, GI/TERM, TPF/IDE, CTFS, T-REX, Source View. I like those products because they give me the feeling I’m developing more windows based software rather than knowing I’m developing on a mainframe. They allow me to quickly deploy software and aid from design, development, intergrated test, customer test and post phases. Through college I worked with IDE to develop code mostly on Linux and probably would not have lasted too long on TPF without these products. Thank you very much!
CTFS – A great tool to allow access to communication links through a TPF/GI or CMSTPF session.
TPFGI – I quality test prior to release of production products for my team. We use CTFSS in conjuction with TPFGI to receive real time link traffic which gives us a very powerful desktop tool.
Good Job! Keep up the good work.
We would like to see TPF Software with us in the future projects also.
URM decommissioning project completed in Nov. 2010: Appreciate your dedication to getting this completed.
URM decommissioning project completed in Nov. 2010: Thank you to you and everyone involved in the completion of the fixed bid work for sticking with the project through the lengthy extension of the schedule.
Thanks so much for you and your team’s support to make this happened.
It’s really a good experience to work with you. Thanks.
I first want to thank you and your team for a successful Multiple TCB implementation on our TROYA ALCS system. It was a very smooth transition – beyond my expectations. I expect us to partner on other projects with the same level of success.
I’ve been tracing with ALCS/GI for a long time and find it an invaluable trace tool providing much more flexibility than before. I then found the old trace tool slow, cumbersome and frustrating as I needed to recall and apply all the trace entry formats again.
zIDE has certainly changed the way I code. Being a developer who uses advanced IDE’s such as eclipse and Visual Studio, it?s great to be able to use an Editor that behaves similarly.
zTPFGI is great for z/Linux or z/TPF related file setups and testing. For .so creation, loads and testing it is a dream. Saves key strokes in not having to sign into Linux (putty), which is a lengthy process.
Thank you for the tutorials, they were really useful … zTREX enables us to compare instruction counts and other data between two (or more) different ECBs, and that’s exactly what we wanted.
[TPF Software] have made a very intuitive product – zTPFGI. It proved to be an excellent tool in resolving bugs found in the z/TPF migration effort.
Almost everyone has a horror story or three when it comes to customer support, but not so with TPF Software. I have found the product support for TPF Software?s products to be consistently superior. Responses to inquiries and help with troubleshooting (though rarely needed) have always been pleasingly prompt.
Congratulations to all on the hard work and dedicated to arresting this condition from our system. I appreciate the hard work!
Congratulations to all on the hard work and dedicated to arresting this condition from our system. I appreciate the hard work!?
I like TPG/GI because the colors are so beautiful. When I feel down and depressed, which happens often in this stressful industry, only I have to do in start up my TPF/GI session and run a few traces and source views. The beautiful colors of the ECB displays just calm me down and make me feel that all is right with the world. I just wish that there was some way to add aromatherapy to TPF/GI!
I use TPF/IDE for TPF development mainly in C. The editor is perfect for our environment. Unlike other products editors, this one is geared for the mainframe environment and recognizes the restraints and restrictions of that environment so we don’t have to. After development is complete I switch over to TPF/GI and use Source View for my initial TPF unit testing. TPF/GI is a marvelous testing tool for TPF/C. I don’t know of another product that makes the testing of C code in the TPF environment that so easily gives you control over the access to your testing variables and environment. I don’t think these products can be beat. Plus the support for these product from TPF Software is exemplary.
