    Session Evaluation

    In December of 2018, with the availability of CICS TS V5.5, IBM CICS Transaction Server has evolved to become the world's most powerful mixed language application server.
     So what does that mean for you?
     -    CICS TS enables applications that are written in different programming languages to share core programming contexts such as security, transactionality, management, and monitoring.
     -   CICS TS V5.5 builds on the capabilities that are delivered in earlier CICS TS V5 releases, enabling development teams to create powerful applications utilizing whichever programming language is optimal for the task, while allowing operational teams to manage these applications from a single point of control.
     -   Major new and enhanced capabilities include Node JS support, Java EE Full Platform support, CICS Explorer aggregation with GraphQL, along with usability and automation.
     -   Come to this CICS opening session to find out how CICS is reinventing the mainframe Application Server.
