IMS Ecosystem: Beyond TM, DB and Tools


IMS is over 50 years young and continues to evolve for modern IT systems. Modern languages and end to end development tools are the tip of the iceberg in this new world. It's no longer a monolith of the mainframe either. Any kind of data, from any platform is now directly accessible from within IMS. IMS data can be shared directly with other systems as well. And transactions can now begin at the interface of choice - web, mobile, IoT, ATM, Point of Sale and anything else that's imaginable. Improvements for end to end security, resilience, and manageability are also available. Come learn how this new IMS can improve your IT environment.
