IBM CICS Transaction Server for z/OS features

Enterprise application server

Applications written in different programming languages can share core programming contexts, such as security, transactionality, management, and monitoring, regardless of the language those applications are written in. Development teams can create powerful mixed language applications, while allowing operational teams to manage these from a single point of control.

Exceptional transactional throughput

As a highly scalable, efficient and performant application server, CICS TS handles extremely high transaction rates. CICS performance benchmarks have reached 227,000 transactions per second using a subset of hardware on an IBM z13® .

Easy integration with cloud and mobile

CICS® TS provides native support for RESTful JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) services alongside traditional SOAP-based web services. CICS TS also provides support for JAX-RS through embedding WebSphere® Liberty Profile.

Portfolio of tools and connectors

CICS benefits from a rich ecosystem of supporting software to realize DevOps efficiencies and to extend the value in existing applications, including the z/OS® Provisioning Toolkit, a free of charge offering which enables you to rapidly provision development environments.
