DataPower
Besides their security, central
governance and policy control,
and workload optimization
features, IBM WebSphere
DataPower* appliances provide
enterprise-wide integration
to reduce the complexity of
connecting an overwhelming
combination of data formats and
transport protocols. DataPower
appliances already provide
close integration with System z
with features like offloading of
XML processing and message
validation or filtering.
Now you can configure
DataPower appliances to call
z/OS Connect APIs using REST
and JSON, and benefit from the
aforementioned advantages

that z/OS Connect provides as a
common and consistent interface
running on the mainframe. All
of this also fits in nicely with
DataPower's ability to provide
intelligent load distribution, for
example across a Liberty cluster,
and integrate both distributed
and mainframe platforms.
API Management
Providing standardized interfaces
in the form of z/OS Connect
RESTful APIs is only part of the
picture. To make these assets
consumable, an API management
solution can be required. Powered
by DataPower appliances, IBM
API Management provides
companies with the tools for
creating, collecting, securing and
socializing these APIs, including
those provided by z/OS Connect.
It is part of a unified enterprise
solution, with an intuitive user
interface, for managing the
complete API lifecycle, enabling a
company to realize the maximum
value from their APIs.
IBM Worklight
IBM Worklight*, a comprehensive
mobile enterprise application
platform, specifically enables
the development of mobile
applications. But going beyond
that, Worklight includes mobileoptimized middleware that
serves as a gateway between the
mobile application and back-end
systems. It supports adapters for
many different type of connection
protocols, including a Worklight
HTTP Adapter to invoke RESTful
services such as those provided
by z/OS Connect.
JSON Web services for IBM
CICS Transaction Gateway V9.1
builds on the support introduced
by the CICS Transaction Server
(TS) Feature Pack for Mobile
Extensions, and extends the
support for mobile applications
to the wider CICS family. It is also

compatible with z/OS Connect,
meaning the investment in the
creation of CICS WS BIND files
for JSON data transformation is
reusable, enabling the transfer
of these assets between z/OS
Connect-compatible solutions.
This allows for the option of using
z/OS Connect to expand beyond
CICS to cover a broader set of
z/OS subsystems, as well as take
advantage of some of the other
benefits of z/OS Connect as a
common interface.
IMS
The IMS Mobile Feature Pack
offers a comprehensive solution
and integrated tooling platform
that helps discover IMS
transactional assets, model and
annotate asset metadata, and
enable and publish those assets
as services. These services can
be used by mobile and cloud
applications, which can securely
access, manage and govern IMS
assets on IBM z/OS. IMS Mobile
leverages the Liberty profile
and its z/OS Connect feature by
supplying a service provider for
IMS that plugs seamlessly into
the z/OS Connect framework. IMS
Mobile can supplement existing
user-written mobile solutions as
well as mobile solutions that use
Worklight, DataPower or both.
IBM Bluemix
IBM Bluemix, a cloud offering
for developers, is an example of
a cloud-based system that could
benefit from having z/OS Connect
as its access point for back-end
z/OS assets. While it is tempting
to think that z/OS Connect is
just for use with mobile devices,
the ability to access back-end
mainframe systems such as CICS
and IMS through a REST/JSON
interface makes the provisioning
and configuration of a cloud
system with this type of access in
mind much easier.
