H&W continually aims to incorporate the enhancements that have the highest impact for customers and prospects.

H&W Computer Systems, Inc. (H&W) today announced the new 6.6 version of its industry-leading SYSB-II® software, which includes a range of enhancements designed to increase performance, security, and usability. Companies use the SYSB-II software to optimize online time for VSAM-reliant CICS applications without interruptions due to batch updates.

“H&W continually aims to incorporate the enhancements that have the highest impact for customers and prospects,” says Development Manager Tracy Balkovic. “The goal of this release’s enhancements is to make the SYSB-II software even more valuable for the companies that rely on it every day to conduct their business-critical operations.”

Enhancements in SYSB-II release 6.6 include:

  • A new control file version with expanded options for greater flexibility.
  • A new web-based interface for easier and more secure management of the control file.
  • A new History File Viewer in the web-based interface that lets users see a job’s historical performance and uncover areas that would benefit from performance and tuning adjustments.
  • A new History File Manager in the web-based interface that encourages accuracy and reduces the time needed to create new history files while making them easier to use with automated switching and allocating.

SYSB-II is mainframe software that allows CICS applications relying on VSAM files to be online 24/7, without downtime to run batch. With SYSB-II, both CICS and batch applications can read and also update VSAM files at the same time, with integrity. This capability allows businesses to process more transactions, offer longer hours of service, and expand to more time zones. It also enables them to make these CICS applications available through web and mobile without service interruptions resulting from a traditional batch window. Organizations can continue to rely on their trusted CICS applications to provide key services without changing source code or assuming the cost, complexity, and risk of rearchitecting applications and data structures.
