H&W Computer Systems today announced the release of the 2015 CICS report, which covers the state of CICS now and compares to past results to identify trends.

Many of the best-known businesses worldwide rely on CICS, which according to IBM processes 1.1 million transactions per second, in comparison with Google searches at only about 59,000 per second.

H&W Computer Systems (H&W) today announced the release of the first report in three years exploring the state of CICS, which is a central mainframe component. The report contains findings about the importance of CICS today, developing trends, and what the future holds.

“Many of the best-known businesses worldwide rely on CICS, which according to IBM processes 1.1 million transactions per second, in comparison with Google searches at only about 59,000 per second,” says Matt Link, president of H&W. “Because it's so important, our company is publishing this report to share gathered insights with the people who count on CICS every day to conduct their operations.”

The report, which is based on a recent Enterprise Tech Journal survey, analyzes the continued use of business-critical applications through CICS and those applications’ relevance in modern uses like mobile and web. It also considers its relationship to business-critical data, as well as looking at how respondents view its future and examining past predictions for accuracy. The report further reveals variances in usage based on industry.

Enterprise Tech Journal conducted the survey with its readers in late 2014. Respondents had to be working in organizations with CICS and z/OS to qualify to complete the survey. These respondents came from broad role categories like systems programmers, architects, managers, and senior managers. H&W received exclusive access to the aggregated survey results from the publisher of Enterprise Tech Journal in order to provide insights into the meaning of the data.
