    In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we show you a cloud services scenario on IBM z/OS®.

    In the scenario, we show you how to perform the following tasks:

    • Subscribe to a service to provision an IBM CICS® system.
    • Assign resources to the CICS system.
    • Use a template to tailor the CICS service
    • Publish the service in our Marketplace
    • Use that service to create a CICS region and start it.
    • Deprovision the CICS region once it is no longer required.

    We explain the basic terms that are associated with the cloud services and which roles play a part in creating, using, and maintaining a cloud service.

    We show you how we used IBM z/OSMF to provision a CICS Transaction Server (TS) System Management Single Server (SMSS) in a controlled laboratory environment.

    The goal of this paper is to provide you with an overview of how a cloud service can be created and used on z/OS. This paper is intended for infrastructure support staff and application development staff who require middleware to develop and maintain business applications that use middleware.
