Session Evaluation

CICS TS 6.2 has just been announced and this session summarises all the new features directly from the CICS team. Developers will be able to use new versions of Java, Jakarta, Spring Boot, and Node.js to modernize and extend applications. CICS administrators will be able to further optimise applications with threadsafe access to shared data tables, reduced volumes of data written to SMF, automate more with CICS policies and Ansible, and use the power of the IBM Z platform to further improve the systems’ resilience and scalability. CICS and security administrators have new features, tools and workflows to tighten security for valuable transactions and data that is best practice and a requirement when adopting a Zero Trust strategy.
