What IBM IMS Index Builder for z/OS can do for your business

IMS™ Index Builder for z/OS® allows IMS primary and secondary indexes and IMS HALDB Indirect List Data Sets to be rebuilt easily. It enables you to build or rebuild IMS secondary indexes, Hierarchical Indexed Direct Access Method (HIDAM) primary indexes and Indirect List Data Sets (ILDS).

Using a number of specialized sorting techniques and parallel processing, it streamlines index creation, reorganization, maintenance and recovery. It creates multiple indexes in one job step and allows you to rebuild IMS indexes – rather than recover or reorganize them using the traditional unload and reload processes used for the primary data store.
