Since founding in 1978, Trident Services has established a solid reputation for the excellence of our software, the responsiveness of our support team, and the expertise of our consulting staff. Our senior systems consultants are all US based professionals with an average of over 25 years experience in their individual specialties.

Trident Services, Inc. is a privately held California corporation with current small business certification, and holds both GSA and CMAS contracts. We are a committed member of the Mainframe community and have been an IBM Business Partner for over 25 years. Trident Services began as a consulting firm, and it was through this experience that we identified needs within the industry. Since launching our first software solution in 1988, we have continued to develop and enhance our software products and services to keep pace with industry changes, emerging technologies and client driven needs.

Our flagship product, zOSEM (zOperating System Environment Manager) is a powerful software tool of strategic importance in the enterprise server environment. Driven by a simple ISPF interface, zOSEM encompasses a multitude of features for improved control, throughput, and processing efficiency in a z/OS environment. zOSEM is enabling customers to reduce & control ISV costs, eliminate exit migration issues, and provides an easy to use DFSMShsm Optimizer which can dramatically improve HSM performance.

Working smarter is a necessity in the current economic climate; Trident customers can relax knowing they have a smart solution that Saves Time, Money and Maximizes Resources!
