IBM IMS Solutions for Automating Database Management
z Systems Software

Redbooks, published 9 Dec 2014, last updated 9 Dec 2014

Over the last few years, IBM® IMS™ and IMS tools have been modernizing the interfaces to IMS and the IMS tools to bring them more in line with the current interface designs. As the mainframe software products are becoming more integrated with the Windows and mobile environments, a common approach to interfaces is becoming more relevant. The traditional 3270 interface with ISPF as the main interface is no longer the only way to do some of these processes. There is also a need to provide more of a common looking interface so the tools do not have a product-specific interface. This allows more ... [more]

Information Management

Redbooks, published 26 Sep 2012, last updated 5 Nov 2014

Time to market, flexibility, and cost reduction are among the top concerns common to all IT executives. If significant resource investments are placed in mature systems, IT organizations need to balance old and new technology. Older technology, such as non-IBM pre-relational databases, is costly, inflexible, and non-standard. Users store their information on the mainframe and thus preserve the skills and qualities of service their business needs. But users also benefit from standards-based modernization by migrating to IBM® DB2® for z/OS®. With this migration, users deliver new application ... [more]

Understanding Mainframe Economics
z Systems

Point-of-View, published 14 Aug 2014

The cost of running a workload can be lower on the mainframe than on other platforms you may be considering. When considering the economics of the mainframe, simple benchmark test results can be misleading. Variability in workload demand and workload management are examples of factors that affect the cost of delivering a workload. Typically, administrators achieve significant operational efficiencies on the mainframe. A variety of workloads can be virtualized and consolidated using Linux on System z®, which results in lower overall software costs when compared to other platforms. Customized ... [more]
