    This IBM Redbooks publication illustrates the architectural choices you have when designing an information technology (IT) infrastructure with IBM WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and one or more back-end systems. This book shows you the pros and cons of using WebSphere Application Server with CICS, IMS, IBM WebSphere MQ and DB2.

    Actually a presentation guide you can use, this book comes with presentation foils included in the additional material. This material helps clients, potential clients and IBM staff to visualize high-level solutions. For each connectivity choice we discuss these attributes:

    - Performance

    - Security

    - Availability

    - Transactional capabilities

    - Scalability

    This book is based on the work of a group of leading-edge IBM eServer zSeries customers and IBM experts known as the zSeries Business Leadership Council.
