ISPF (Interactive System Productivity Facility)

ISPF (Interactive System Productivity Facility) is the user interface and supporting programs that come with IBM's OS/390 operating system and that allow a company to configure and manage its system, add new system or application programs and test them, and access system files (data sets). ISPF consists of the Dialog Manager (DM), the Program Development Facility (PDF), and the Software Configuration and Library Management (SCLM) facility.

IBM also offers an ISPF that will run on an OS/2 system so that developers can work "offline" from the OS/390.
