IMS and SOA
Source: BMC Software
IMS provides unmatched scalability, performance, security, and availability. But perhaps the most important benefit of IMS is accessibility. IBM is ensuring that IMS will be around for a long time by providing access to IMS transactions and data outside of the normal mainframe environment. At technical conferences, IBM provides many sessions on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the future of IMS. By opening IMS to non-mainframe environments, IBM has enabled to make the most of the significant investment have made in IMS.
