IMS INSIGHT Series – z/OS Topics
Apr 24, 2024 | 11:00 AM – 1:30 PM Eastern Time



The IMS Insight Series is intended as a means to bring the IMS community together in order to feature topics including best practices, recommendations, new functionality, demonstrations, workshops, etc., that impact the IMS environment.  Each session will feature a Subject Matter Expert(s) who explore a specific area and provides  the “what”, the “why” and the “how” to address the topic.

One of the IMS application callout capabilities presented in March was the ability to issue HTTP(S) calls by leveraging the z/OS Web Enablement Toolkit. As a follow-on to that specific functionality, which was only introduced briefly last month, this month’s session will explain the capability in greater detail. Additionally, you will have the ability to hear about what’s new in z/OS 3.1.

IMS Insight – z/OS Topics
Leverage REST APIs in your IMS apps using the z/OS Client Web Enablement Toolkit! (1hr)
Wouldn’t it be awesome for your existing z/OS and IMS applications to be able to quickly and easily leverage the plethora of REST APIs available on and off the z/OS platform as well as APIs available on-prem? That day is now! Using the “built-in” z/OS Client Web Enablement Toolkit (requiring no special installation), applications can easily interact with REST APIs and parse JSON in a snap! This introductory session shows how simple it is to move your applications into today’s technology in no time!

What’s New in z/OS 3.1? (1hr, 15 mins)
Join us for a whirlwind tour to explore the latest enhancements available in z/OS 3.1 to learn how you can leverage the very latest z/OS has to offer!
