Over 90% of the top Fortune® 1000 companies rely on IBM’s Information Management System (IMS) for their most critical IBM System z® data management needs: 50,000,000,000+ transactions run through IMS databases every day. What’s more, IBM continues to upgrade IMS: Versions 12, 11, and 10 meet today’s business challenges more flexibly and at a lower cost than ever before. In An Introduction to IMS, Second Edition, leading IBM experts present the definitive technical introduction to these versions of IMS.

More than a complete tutorial, this book provides up-to-date examples, cases, problems, solutions, and a complete glossary of IMS terminology. Prerequisite reading for the current IBM IMS Mastery Certification Program, it reflects major recent enhancements such as dynamic information generation; new access, interoperability and development tools; improved SOA support; and much more. Whether you’re a DBA, database developer, or system programmer, it brings together all the knowledge you’ll need to succeed with IMS in today’s mission critical environments.
