Macro 4’s mainframe modernization solutions will support IBM CICS Transaction Server for z/OS, V5.5 at launch

New release delivers technical innovation and improved business value

Crawley, UK, December 13, 2018 – Macro 4, a division of UNICOM® Global, has announced that its mainframe performance, fault analysis and modernization solutions, including Eclipse and web interfaces, will support the new IBM® CICS® Transaction Server (CICS TS) for z/OS®, V5.5 when it is released on December 14, 2018.

“CICS TS V5.5 promises customers technical innovation and improved business value and includes a significant number of enhancements that have been requested through IBM user groups. Our customers will be able to take advantage of these at launch,” said Michelle Harris, Customer and Product Services Manager at Macro 4. “We’ve always worked closely with IBM to ensure that our mainframe solutions support new versions of IBM software as soon as they are available. We’ve been part of IBM’s early test program for many years and have a long history of collaborating on new releases of its products. Both CICS and Macro 4 turned 50 this year and together we’re going from strength to strength.”

“One of the many interesting new features in CICS TS V5.5 is the support for JavaScript Node.js, a server-side runtime environment for applications that are written in JavaScript, which is designed to deliver time savings to developers through its module-driven, scalable approach to application development. There are also enhancements to CICS Explorer which are expected to simplify and improve the user experience. Our software will work with the new version from day one so our customers can start seeing these improvements immediately.”
