Googling on TSO/ISPF turned up this as the first hit:

http://www.xephon.com/tsoispfupdate.html

There's an FAQ and a Glossary. From the latter:

ISPF
Interactive System Productivity Facility. Menu and screen management system
that has only ever been popular on z/OS TSO, but has been offered, at one
time or another, on VSE/ESA ICCF and z/VM CMS(1). There have also been both
IBM and non-IBM workstation versions. And even a (non-IBM) Unix version.
Though, arguably, they mainly concentrated on providing the PDF(1)
component. ISPF first saw the light of day in 1974 as SPF. Provides
facilities for developing and running menu-driven dialog systems on 3270
terminals and, more recently, workstations. ISPF services can be accessed
using WSP/2. ISPF is an element of z/OS. See also ISPF/PDF.

TSO
Time Sharing Option. These days, everyone just says TSO when they mean
TSO/E. Back in the 1980s, TSO was included with MVS/XA and you had to pay
extra for TSO/E. Well worth the money given that TSO left you stranded below
the 16MB line.

HTH!
