IBM Z Integration Guide for the Hybrid Cloud and API Economy
Mobile

Redpaper, published 27 Jul 2018

Today, organizations are responding to market demands and regulatory requirements faster than ever by extending their applications and data to new digital applications. This drive to deliver new functions at speed has paved the way for a huge growth in cloud and microservices applications, such as those hosted in IBM® Cloud. One of the most widely adopted ways to integrate cloud applications with enterprise application logic and business data is the use of application programming interfaces (APIs). By extending enterprise applications to form a hybrid cloud environment, you can capitalize on ... [more]

IBM CICS and the Coupling Facility: Beyond the Basics
Application Platform

Redbooks, published 21 Feb 2018

It's easy to look at the title of a book and think "that's old news" or "I already know all there is to know on that subject." But before you dismiss this publication, consider just how far the IBM® Parallel Sysplex® architecture has come. From the early days the mainframe has embraced a shared everything approach. The original designers coded IBM z/OS® (called IBM MVS™ or IBM OS/390® back then) with the functionality necessary for the operating system to create the repositories, manage the data flow, and ensure the integrity of the systems involved. From there, the middleware systems ... [more]

IBM CICS Asynchronous API: Concurrent Processing Made Simple
Application Integration

Redbooks, published 22 Dec 2017

This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers the background and implementation of the IBM CICS® asynchronous API, which is a simple, accessible API that is designed to enable CICS application developers to create efficient asynchronous programs in all CICS-supported languages. Using the API, application developers can eliminate the overhead that is involved in coding and managing homegrown asynchronous solutions, instead using a set of CICS-supported API commands to underpin CICS applications, which are more responsive and robust than ever. Initially, the book reviews the history and motivations ... [more]

Digital Transformation with IBM Application Discovery
Application Platform

Redpaper, published 28 Sep 2017

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes how IBM Application Discovery (AD) complements IBM z/OS® Connect Enterprise Edition and IBM Developer for z Systems® in making older mainframe applications available to the digital world. By using a sample scenario, this publication primarily focuses on how the functionality of AD can be used to discover application programming interface (API) candidates and how z/OS Connect can easily create an API out of the mainframe program. It also describes how IBM Developer for z Systems acts as the tool that links the entire ... [more]
