    Accelerate your digital transformation calling IMS using REST APIs with z/OS Connect EE.

    The digital economy has forever changed how consumers, businesses, and employees interact. To create powerful and useful mobile apps, the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) becomes essential. Nearly 70% of all enterprise transactions touch a mainframe, yet the mainframe is not thought of as API powerhouses. In this session we will present and demonstrate that zSystem are fully conversant with REST APIs. We will guide you through the IBM technologie called z/OS Connect Enterprise Edition to expose an IMS program through a REST API.

    zSystem is often seen as a backend system. But it’s not true: zSystem interacts more and more with applications outside of its area, and sometimes outside of the company’s area. It can be a micro service in a cloud provider like Amazon, or Azure. Those micro services use the REST standard to interact with. On the zSystem this standard is not simple to apply in Cobol or PL1. To make this integration smooth, one option is to use z/OS Connect EE. In this presentation you will see how to call a REST API from an IMS transaction with z/OS Connect EE.
