Cloud Provisioning and Management content solution for z/OS

Welcome to the Cloud Provisioning and Management for z/OS content solution, your homepage for technical resources. Use it to improve the agility of your DevOps team, integrate z/OS into your hybrid cloud, and transform your IT infrastructure.

With IBM Cloud Provisioning and Management for z/OS, you create software service templates that provision IBM® middleware, such as IBM Customer Information Control System (CICS®), IBM Db2®, IBM Information Management System (IMS™), IBM MQ, and IBM WebSphere Application Server. You can track software instances that were provisioned from those templates. Users can quickly provision and deprovision an environment as needed through a self-service software services marketplace, with no need for intervention by a system administrator. With z/OS Cloud Broker, you can provision the software services through IBM Cloud Private (ICP).

IBM Cloud Provisioning and Management is available through z/OSMF, which provides a web browser-based user interface as well as REST APIs.
