Speeding up reorgs using CA products

I note EZreorg can help, but using existing CA products would be preferable.

We have a area split over 5 files. occupying 2 disk 3390-3, which to my mind is not a very large area, but full of pointers etc..

This takes about 15 hours to complete an unload reload . Plus internal processes to adjust DBkeys held by the application within the database records. So lets say 20 hours elapsed using stacked tapes (which we have a 4 drives competing with CICS and IDMS journalling). A long downtime .for updates, this being the key database for many applications here. ..

I see that EZreorg remaps the DBkeys , and uses the journals to bring the database up to date using existing journals.

Does anything else exist within CA which can do the same... Thanks //reorg might help?

We are using R16SP7 and will upgrade to R18 in Jan 2012
