Computer Associates Panvalet® (also known as CA-Panvalet) is a revision control and source code management system for mainframe computers such as the IBM System z and IBM System/370 running the z/OS and z/VSE operating systems. Unlike open-source solutions such as CVS, SVN or Mercurial, Panvalet is a closed source, proprietary system for versioning and control of source code such as Microsoft Visual SourceSafe on personal computers. It uses a client-server model where users check-out files to change and check them back into the repository when finished.[1]

Panvalet can be used to manage program source code, JCL, and object module files. It supports granular access controls including check-in and check-out by specific mainframe user IDs.[2]
