Enable and Manage APIs
There is a wealth of underutilized enterprise IP that can be unlocked from mainframe applications. A large portion of organizations IP assets are currently locked in monolithic mainframe applications, while cloud-based apps and services remain isolated from core transactional systems. From Alexa to Apple Pay and vehicle lookup to mortgage processing, APIs are needed to unleash the core value of mainframe assets to interface with applications running on a broad array of platforms.
By API enabling mainframe application you can provide access in minutes vs months using REST APIs for cloud connectivity to core transactional applications and data.
A business can achieve self-service access to mainframe resources by leveraging new developer friendly offerings that eliminate the need for specialized labor, to process provisioning requests, giving developers ability to access the platform directly. With IBM z/OS Connect EE you can connect mainframe programs with cloud and other applications in seconds from native mainframe code, without modifications. Applications and services can call mainframe data and functions directly through an open standards API interface and scale services with demand.

Optimize CQRS pattern
The Optimize CQRS pattern is a Z specialization and optimization when Systems of Record are on IBM z/OS. Trends across numerous industries are creating the necessity to transform many business processes into real-time or near-real time responsiveness, even those that have traditionally been satisfied with latent information. To achieve the real-time delivery of relevant information to consuming business processes, many organizations are implementing event-based architectures and backbones across their enterprises.
