CICS application development
Improved productivity

Leverage workload management, availability and performance features that increase efficiency and support business growth. TXSeries for Multiplatforms provides horizontal and vertical scalability and flexibility when making routing decisions. It offers simplified configuration, statistics, and improved health monitoring. TXSeries for Multiplatforms includes IBM WebSphere® Liberty profile as a backbone for web-based infrastructure for improved scalability.

Working with CICS workload management
Manage and monitor to streamline administrative actions

Leverage near real-time monitoring capability using IBM Tivoli® Monitoring infrastructure to monitor entire TXSeries deployments from a single Tivoli Enterprise Portal. This simplifies administration on UNIX® platforms by allowing non-root users to perform TXSeries administrative tasks. The administration console is web-based for ease of administration, configuration and monitoring.

Monitoring TXSeries using IBM Tivoli Monitoring
Interoperability with CICS and non-CICS systems

Take advantage of external access protocols, like ECI and EPI, that are enabled by IBM CICS® Transaction Gateway (CICS TG). TXSeries for Multiplatforms integrates across clients and other CICS regions using TCP/IP protocol and provides support for both IPv4 and IPv6, allowing TXSeries to interoperate with clients and other CICS systems over IPv4 and IPv6-enabled networks.

Internet Protocol interconnectivity security
Exposes applications as RESTful APIs

Enable your clients to participate in the API Economy by exposing their existing applications as RESTful APIs. TXSeries for Multiplatforms adheres to the Open API specification and allows auto generation of Swagger documents on the creation of those APIs. And TXSeries for Multiplatforms integrates with IBM API Connect™ to provide discovery and monitoring facilities.

RESTful API support for TXSeries
Extensive diagnostic support

You can detect suspected hangs and automatically collect documents with built-in serviceability capabilities for problem determination and remediation. Monitor and collect the CICS IPC and SARPCD artifacts to monitor memory usage and plan system resources. Support for CACQ transaction and related APIs help you acquire, check and release the status of IPIC connections. and the diagnostic information collection utility extends to all TXSeries supported platforms.
