Plaza A, Lobby Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Matthew Webster(IBM UK Laboratories Limited)
  • CICS as a Platform Service Provider (3.1 MB)
  • To facilitate the deployment of a new application level resource, CICS introduces the concept of a platform. Platforms are new CICS resources that deliver a simple layer of abstraction to decouple applications from the underlying region topology. In addition we introduce the concept of a Policy.  Policies enable the behaviour of applications and platforms to be managed by determining whether tasks running as part of a platform, as an application, or as types of operation within an application, exceed certain predefined thresholds. When a threshold is breeched, CICS can issue a message, abend the task, or issue an event.  Expanding on the concepts introduced in the earlier session (Reinventing the CICS application lifecycle) this session shows how the combination of application, platform, and policy deliver far greater service agility.
