Question:
Is MTC-CV (Mainframe Team Center - Content Viewer) the same product as CA OM Web Viewer 14.0?
With MTC-CV, is there the need for CA DRAS?
Does MTC-CV currently have the option of being installed on z-Linux as well as OMVS?
 
Environment:
CA View 14.0
Mainframe Team Center - Content Viewer 14.0
Answer:
Though Mainframe Team Center - Content Viewer (MTC-CV) is the new name for the means to browse reports using a web browser, it is also going by the name CA OM Web Viewer 14.0.

MTC-CV Mainframe Team Center - Content Viewer 14.0 has much of the functionality as the Web Viewers, with additional functionality to be added in the next few months.

With using Content Viewer, there is no further need for CA DRAS.

The mainframe portion of Content Viewer, requires a supported GA release of IBM z/OS.
With that, Content Viewer is not installed on z/Linux.

Content Viewer supports the latest versions of Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
It also supports mobile browsers on iOS and Android.
