CICS Transaction Gateway details

Fast, simple mobile enablement

Enables simple and rapid mobile integration of your enterprise IBM® CICS® Transaction Server, CICS TX or IBM TXSeries® environment. You can build on your existing architecture to quickly provide mobile connectivity to back-end systems with JSON web services.

Availability and scalability

Uses a highly available gateway with policy-based, sysplex-wide dynamic server selection. Workload Partitioning, XA transactions and 64-bit Java® 8 enable remote client applications to exploit a CICS high availability infrastructure.

Transaction tracking across IBM CICSplex

Tracks user requests from point of origin across the CICSplex® with support for problem determination and performance optimization. Performance management, monitoring and troubleshooting can be provided by IBM Tivoli® OMEGAMON® XE for CICS on z/OS®.

Containerized instance

Provides readily deployable CICS TG container based on Red Hat® Universal Base Image which can be deployed across cloud platforms. This enables simplified DevOps pipeline and ease of maintenance through rolling updates ensuring zero downtime.

64-bit support

Operates as a 32-bit or 64-bit address space. With 64-bit address space, the Gateway daemon can process workloads with larger channels and can use more connection manager and worker threads without exhausting address space resources.

Instrumented administration

Visit CICS Performance Analyzer for z/OS

Features monitoring and statistical facilities, giving planners and systems administrators insight into active workload patterns. Usage statistics are written in SMF type-111 record for offline analysis using IBM CICS Performance Analyzer for z/OS and are available in XML format for easy consumption and analysis.
