    Modules covered in Mainframe:

    Z/OS: z/OS is a 64-bit operating system for mainframecomputers, produced by IBM

    JCL: Job Control Language is a scripting language usedon IBM mainframe operating systems to instruct thesystem on how to run a batch job or start a subsystem.JCL uses a number of IBM utility programs to assist in

    the processing of data. Utilities are most useful inbatch processing.

    Who is the system programmer?In a mainframe IT organization, the system programmer(or

    systems programmer) plays a central role. The systemprogrammer installs, customizes, and maintains the operatingsystem, and also installs or upgrades products that run on thesystem.

    Who is the system administrator?The distinction between system programmerand systemadministratorvaries widely among mainframe sites. In smaller ITorganizations, where one person might be called upon toperform several roles, the terms may be used interchangeably.

    Who are the application designers and programmers?The application designerand application

    programmer(or "application developer") design, build, test, anddeliver mainframe applications for the company's end users andcustomers. Based on requirements gathered from businessanalysts and end users, the designer creates a designspecification from which the programmer constructs anapplication. The process includes several iterations of code

    changes and compilation, application builds, and unit testing.

    Who is the system operator?

    The system operatormonitors and controls the operationof the mainframe hardware and software. The operatorstarts and stops system tasks, monitors the system consolesfor unusual conditions, and works with the systemprogramming and production control staff to ensure the

    health and normal operation of the systems. Who is the production control analyst?

    Theproduction control analyst is responsible for makingsure that batch workloads run to completion withouterror or delay.

    What roles do vendors play?A number of vendor roles are commonplace in themainframe shop.

    Who uses mainframes and why do

    they do it?

    Everyone has used a mainframe computer at onepoint or another. Example: If you have ever used an

    automated teller machine (ATM) to interact with yourbank account, you used a mainframe.

    Perform large-scale transaction processing (thousandsof transactions per second)

    Support thousands of users and application programsconcurrently accessing numerous resources

    Manage terabytes of information in databases

    Handle large-bandwidth communication

    CICS has its highest profile among financial

    institutions such as banks and insurance companies,over 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies are reportedto run CICS along with many government entities.CICS is also widely used by many smaller

    organizations. CICS is used in bank-tellerapplications, ATM systems, industrial productioncontrol systems, insurance applications, and manyother types of interactive applications.
