TECH CORNER | IMS

zCAP allows new applications
and new workloads to be priced
as if they were in a dedicated
environment, while technically
integrated in LPARs running
other workloads. CMP provides
flexibility to move and run
workloads anywhere, and
migrate to new hardware-
eliminating duplicate subcap
peaks and sysplex aggregated
pricing rules.

Figure 2: Digital Transformation Path

Integrate Assets
Most IMS clients are on a path
to modernization, enabling
them to preserve and grow the
dividends of their IT investments.
Integration goes hand-in-hand
with modernization. Enterprise
clients must find the balance
between keeping their legacy
IMS assets safe and opening
access to (integrating) those
assets, making them available to
emerging technologies.
z/OS Connect Enterprise
Edition allows clients to serve
data directly from z/OS, which is
40 percent less expensive than
exporting the data to a system of
engagement (ibm.co/1VSfl4s).
z Systems clients with
applications running on z/OS
(i.e., IMS, CICS, DB2 for z/OS
or WebSphere*) can leverage
business assets, expose them as
APIs and make them available to
app developers.
This will help IMS clients not
only meet the demands of the

G

z/OS Connect
Enterprise
Edition allows
clients to serve
data directly from
z/OS, which is
40 percent less
expensive than
exporting the
data to a system
of engagement

API economy but also extend the
value of their IMS assets.

Open Access
Each of the aforementioned
strategic initiatives-
modernization, Java and z/OS
Connect-require access to IMS
data. Like the evolution of Java
on IBM z*, access to IMS data
started simply and has continued
to expand its reach through
IMS 14 capabilities.
Access to IMS data is, in a
word, open. Using industry
standard APIs and syntax,
data can be accessed from any
platform. Access to IMS data
is also agnostic. Application
developers, system programmers
and database administrators can
integrate with and connect to

the IMS database using industry
standard tools for modeling,
discovery and data insight. With
IMS 14, database administrators
can evolve structure and schema
dynamically, using industry
standard syntax without needing
an outage.
The focus is on the strategic
importance of open access to
IMS data and, as a result, an
Open Access Adoption Kit has
been developed. It's filled with
a sequence of videos, tutorials
and code samples that can
help accelerate open access
to IMS data for modernization
and analytics objectives.
This information becomes
source data for IBM DB2
Query Management Facility*,
Cognos*, IBM DB2 Analytics
