CICS/ESA 4.1 was a very solid release. In fact, I hear of shops still running that release, though it has been out of support for years. 4.1 was a release that many of us that have been through multiple releases of CICS remember as one of the best. Well, IBM has just announced the next release of CICS – CICS/TS 4.1.
Information about the new version of CICS is starting to come out … The IBM web site has a section with the features, requirements, and more, and another section tells about an open beta. The Master Terminal blog has a preview with videos featuring a technical overview and describing the business value of the new version. And check out the buzz about the new version of CICS on the I ♥ CICS Facebook group page.
Me, I look forward to learning even more about CICS/TS 4.1 at SHARE next week!
