    The second CICS Technical Exchange (CTE) took place on Wednesday 21st April 2021. This 60 minute event featured talks from Nick Garrod and Russell Bonner relating the latest news and upcoming events pertinent to CICS as well as a quick tour through the April CICS TS continuous delivery drop content. Stewart Francis then took us through DevOps for CICS TS with the new IBM z/OS CICS collection for Ansible, including an entertaining demo. This was followed by an insight from Sophie Green into the content of a recent Redpapaer concerning Application modernization with IBM CICS. Time was given over to an as me anything session at the end.

    Attendees could post questions in the WebEx chat that were monitored and answered in the 'chat area' by members of the CICS team during the session as well as the Ask Me Anything session at the end.

    We aim to schedule future CTEs on a quarterly basis to coincide with CICS continuous delivery drops, however, given the vacation season in July and August, out 3Q event is likely to be later in the quarter to avoid conflict with SHARE and individuals vacations. We plan to feature both new technology as well as revisiting capability delivered in prior releases that may have been missed, forgotten, or just made available at a time that was inconvenient to deploy. So please let us know any topics you would like future sessions to focus on, or any comments you have on how we could improve future events.

    Keep a look out for the next event in 3Q.​
