IBM has issued a new whitepaper entitled “Why to choose CICS Transaction Server for new IT projects“. Authored by Andrew Bates, the document is targeted towards IT leaders who are considering their options for new projects. Andrew does a good job of justifying the mainframe platform as opposed to server farms, and positioning CICS as a desirable runtime environment. Not a whole lot to be found that is new for those in the trenches, but a good read to forward to managers. IBM needs to be striving to position more such articles where IT decision makers can learn more about how the mainframe environment can be good for ROI.
- I'm "the CICS guy" at our shop. Whether you are the CICS guy (or gal) in your world, a CICS developer, or one of our IBM friends, hopefully you will find something of interest or of value here.
