Benefits Save time

Perform processes faster and consume less CPU time for IMS application resource changes (transactions, programs, databases and route codes) in a single-step batch job or online.

Manage IMS systems with greater ease

Manage multiple IMS systems in a sysplex or IMSplex environment; view IMS sysplex and IMSplex information through a single interface; and automate the handling of specific error situations.

Reduce costs

Decrease the expense of managing system parameters. Use a centralized approach that makes resource and parameter configurations more accessible to programmers working with IMS systems.

Operations analytics

Expose near real-time IMS Connect transaction summary data to analytics engines.

Analyze transaction performance

Use IMS Problem Investigator to browse sections in the IMS log where poorly performing transactions are found.

Tools included in the solution pack

IMS High Performance System Generation Tools

Promptly update your IMS system generation resource definitions without an IMS restart. You can create a list of resource update entries, verify them, and install them without any outages, issues with work-in-progress, nor online change commands. Resource updates can be installed in one IMS system or multiple systems simultaneously. Simply install and let the tool streamline your change workflow.
