Next Virtual Meeting:

Tom Dunlap, CTO at Themis

Date: Tuesday 15 January 2019
Time: 10:30am CST, 16:30 GMT
Title: The CICS/Db2 interface
Presenter: Tom Dunlap, CTO at Themis
Abstract: You have become a seasoned CICS application technical support person or system administrator but you have been avoiding looking at the CICS/Db2 interface and its options. Then this webinar is just the thing for you. After a very quick overview of the interface, we will dive into the CICS resources and their options with an eye toward performance. We will also take a look at the DB2 command interface within the CICS region along with their use in problemsolving or performance tuning. If that is not enough, we will walk through CICS trace data with an associated application to profile its use of Db2. All in all we hope to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to begin working with the interface. However, we cannot cover all aspects of problem solving or performance tuning but we can give you a good start in one short hour.
