CICS TS V4.2 education published

November 24, 2011 Leave a comment

We’ve just updated IBM Education Assistant with some education on the new features that are available in CICS TS V4.2. We’ve added presentations on features like system events, the JVM server and OSGi, transaction tracking, and system management enhancements. There’s also a technical overview and four minute pitch on the whole release. You can either listen along to the recording or download the PDFs with notes.

Feedback on any of the education that we’ve published is very welcome.


Revitalizing your CICS seminar – Hursley comes to North America

February 23, 2010 Leave a comment

There are two really great CICS seminars coming up at the start of March, if you can get to Boston, Massachusetts (March 2nd) or Palisades, New York (March 4th).

So why are they so great? Well let’s just skip over the fact that they are free full-day seminars for the moment. They are also being taught by the IBM Hursley UK lab team, so you can be sure you are going to be in the hands of the experts (infact I see that CICS Distinguished Engineer Ian Mitchell will be one of the main speakers at the seminar, which is about as good as it gets). The seminar is based around the new CICS TS V4.1 release and won’t just be covering the new functionality in the new release but will also be showing you how to extract real value from your CICS regions.

The seminar is split into 3 sessions:

  1. Revitalizing Business
  2. Revitalizing Applications
  3. Simplifying your IT Environment

This is a seminar that is going to introduce you to what I consider to be the most consumable CICS Transaction Server to date. Part of this is about taking your existing assets and very quickly extracting new value without having to change them. The data inside your CICS regions is now more accessible and readily available than ever before, helping your business to be much more pro-active, flexible and adaptable to new opportunities and challenges that may come your way. To help you get there even faster, the CICS tools are there to help analyze and configure your CICS regions so those opportunities and challenges can be identified with ease.

There is a huge amount of new functionality in CICS TS V4.1, from the CICS Explorer, Event Processing, Atom support, SCA and a whole lot more. If you want to find out how to take advantage, then register for the seminar today so you don’t miss out. These are just the first two dates scheduled, look out for more seminars in April!

Full information on the seminar and registration can be found here:
