Larry Lawler, UNICOM Global CTO, said, “As long-standing partners we always collaborate with IBM on new software releases to ensure that our products work together seamlessly from day one. Customers use our solutions to ensure the smooth running of their mission-critical mainframe systems, modernize their applications and reduce deployment timescales for new developments. We are excited by the latest enhancements to the CICS TS user experience, including support for Node.js version 12, a modern scripting language for the new generation of CICS users, and support for the recently announced z/OS Workload Interaction Correlator, which assists performance analysis in today’s high utilization shared mainframe environments.
