3. TRANSACTIONAL ACCESS
Transactional access, whether installed on the mainframe or on a separate server, enables the reusability
of business logic embedded in the transactions from programs written for the CICS and IMS development
environments. We execute transactions through their defined interface and integrate them,
like any other service, into newly designed applications. Essentially, we link mainframe and non-mainframe
applications together at the client level.
4. DIRECT DATA ACCESS
Many projects start out with the goal of using mainframe data directly from databases such as
DB2, IMS/DB, and VSAM, in new projects. Often, this starts as a batch process - replicated mainframe
data is made available for use in non-mainframe applications. This approach can be very limiting.
We build tables, combining and merging data from multiple sources.
This means a non-mainframe user can access mainframe-based data sources in real-time without having to
understand them, or needing to manually collect the data.
We provide built-in connectivity to mainframe-based
data sources and applications across a distributed environment.
