SOA Software Announces IBM IMS Transformation Product


SOLA for IMS Facilitates Agile Reuse of IMS Applications

SOA Software, a leading SOA and Cloud Services Governance vendor, today announced SOLA for IMS, a legacy modernization solution that transforms IMS applications into high-quality, high-performance enterprise services, allowing the mainframe to be a full participant in an Service Oriented Architecture enabled environment.

ebizQ received the following:

SOLA is a comprehensive mainframe Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) solution that cost effectively turns the mainframe into a seamless part of an SOA enabled environment. SOLA provides customers with a fast and easy way to expose mainframe applications as secure, high-performance enterprise services and allows mainframe applications to consume Web Services.

Using SOLA, customers can leverage millions of dollars of existing mainframe investments as part of their enterprise SOA environment. The SOLA runtime environment resides entirely on the mainframe, eliminating the need for expensive, unreliable and unnecessary middleware. Coupled with SOLA’s Development Studio, this vastly increases developer productivity, providing faster time to market and lower application development cost.

“Many Fortune 1000 companies use IMS,” said Jim Crew, Vice President of SOA Software. “This product extends existing investments and provides growth opportunities for IMS applications that can be reused in new business initiatives.”

SOLA for IMS runs independently of any transaction management software, making it ideal for IMS-only environments. SOLA for IMS handles IMS transactions written in COBOL, PL/I or Natural, with multiple input and output segments. SOLA for IMS also allows any mainframe program to easily consume services. SOLA’s orchestration capabilities allow multiple IMS transactions to be executed on a single trip to the mainframe, vastly reducing latency.

SOLA for IMS can also service-enable DB2 stored procedures and SQL statements. SOLA is highly optimized, making it the most efficient option for service-enabling mainframe transactions. Much of SOLA is written in assembler language, so the SOLA runtime offers lower MSU consumption and higher throughput than alternatives that use Java and rely on zAAP specialty engines.

Unlike alternative solutions that only offer one or two components of mainframe SOA, SOLA offers a comprehensive SOA solution, further reducing TCO. SOLA eliminates the need to integrate multiple mainframe and distributed products/platforms to create enterprise-class services. SOLA is a Governed Service Platform, making it fully governable by SOA Software products like Policy Manager and Service Manager.

Innovative SOLA features such as One-Click service creation and an easy to use drag-and-drop interface deliver the only secure, standards-based and governable SOA product in the mainframe industry. SOLA provides end-to-end SOA governance for the mainframe with WS-Security, WS-Policy, optimized registry, integrated monitoring, logging, auditing and near limitless scalability, all implemented on the mainframe.

This makes SOLA the only solution for companies seeking secure, high-volume, mission-critical mainframe SOA. SOLA is the only product proven in enterprise implementations to handle high volume (10 million+) transactions per day in mission-critical mainframe SOA environments.

Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
