Crawley, UK, June 6, 2017 - Macro 4, a division of UNICOM Global, has today announced that its mainframe performance, fault analysis and modernization solutions will support the new IBM CICS® Transaction Server (CICS TS) for z/OS®, V5.4 when it is released on June 16, 2017.
"As contributors to IBM's early test program we always work closely with IBM to ensure that our mainframe solutions support new versions of IBM software as soon as they are available. CICS TS 5.4 is the latest in a raft of recent IBM software updates that our mainframe customers are keen to start using," said Michelle Harris, Product Release Manager at Macro 4.
"In this release IBM has introduced a new asynchronous CICS API which will enable developers to incorporate programming logic that follows a 'parent-child' logic model in their CICS applications. This allows application processes to run in parallel, and IBM says that this will enable developers to create more responsive applications with faster response times while benefitting from the strong monitoring and transaction tracking capabilities provided by CICS TS. Our software will work with this new version from day one so our customers can start delivering these improvements immediately."
Macro 4's performance, fault analysis and interactive testing solutions reduce the costs and timescales involved in developing and supporting critical mainframe applications, helping organizations identify and resolve mainframe software problems faster and deliver consistently high levels of customer service. The company’s modernization solutions leverage new technology to provide more intuitive interfaces for mainframe end user applications and developer tools.
