Product/service informationtableBASEtableBASE provides the shortest possible path to the data. Data is loaded into in-memory tables (from DB2, VSAM, etc.). I/Os are replaced with in-memory fetches. tableBASE was designed for performance – and there are a number aspects of the product – over and above the physics of simply eliminating the I/Os that contribute to its speed by keeping the code path as short as possible.When the amount of time taken for each transaction is reduced, and the number of transactions per unit of time is increased, performance and capacity are significantly increased.
VTSIf you need to share table data between multiple applications, our VTS product provides the ability to share data, and to preserve it after the application has completed. This ensures that all applications have identical data, and enables tables to be used as a message queue or to overcome bottlenecks between applications.
VTS ManagerVTS Manager allows for the sharing of tables across LPARs (logical partitions on a mainframe CPU) and across a Sysplex. It also enables the ability to switch the data that all the applications access in a synchronized manner.

Product/service informationH&W’s industry-leading SYSB-II is a cost-effective way to use existing VSAM-reliant CICS applications to accommodate business growth without downtime due to batch. The software allows CICS and batch to have concurrent access to VSAM files any time, which provides two advantages.
First, users have full read/write access to CICS applications 24/7, even while batch runs, so they have more time to use the system. This allows customers and employess to be productive more hours of the day and for CICS applications to be available in new ways, such as part of web or mobile apps, without batch-related downtime. Second, users have access to VSAM data that is being updated closer to real time, so they don’t have to wait for overnight changes or rely on “point in time” data. Completing services like cutting checks, making payments, or submitting claims becomes a faster process.
Simple and quick to implement, SYSB-II doesn’t require application source-code changes, additional hardware, data migration, or rearchitecting the existing IT infrastructure. Gain a competitive edge while enhancing customer satisfaction, improving user productivity, and empowering employees and customers to make better decisions based on better data.

Company profileillustro Systems focus on delivering software solutions that empower today’s mainframe customer to lead the way with innovation.
We believe that web-enabling mainframe applications should mean return on investment in hours, not months. And our z/Web-Host product provides just that. And with the rapidly emerging standard of SOA and using Web Services and XML as the method of exchanging data between computers, our z/XML-Host product delivers a powerful yet simple solution. Our customers have their Internet-enabling projects in production in the same time it takes just to evaluate competitive solutions.
Product/service informationillustro’s z/Ware family of products have earned the reputation of being easy. The z/Web-Host product
transforms any 3270 application, whether CICS or non-CICS, directly into a fully functional, web-based interface that anyone can use – all without touching the original application. And with z/XML-Host, mainframe data can be automatically converted into XML documents and accessed via Web Services using SOAP, meaning your data and business-critical logic can be shared with any platform or application. This includes languages like Java and .Net, or Web-Services-enabled platforms including IBM’s WebSphere and Microsoft Office. What’s more, both z/Web-Host and z/XML-Host run directly on either z/OS (OS/390) or z/VSE (VSE/ESA), so there’s no need to add cost and complexity to the process by using a different, less reliable platform just to Internet-enable your mainframe.
And now that your mainframe data can easily be made available on the ‘Net, security is an important issue. That’s where our iCYA network appliance comes in. The iCYA delivers full Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protection so your data is encrypted until it reaches a trusted source.

Using a combination of both signature-based and anomaly-based attack detection, SMA_RT notifies administrators of malicious activity in real-time. SMA_RT can easily integrate with a variety of security management products including many leading SIM/SEM products.
SMA_RT combines z/OS Communications Server and client/server technology. It functions as a security monitor program product that looks for patterns of abuse and sends real-time alerts. It supports systems environments across
multiple CPUs and over geographically diverse locations. SMA_RT tracks activity, monitors systems resources and records vital information. Alerts are routed to the SMA_RT management GUI, external security log concentrator products or other threat management products that use TCP/IP SYSLOG protocol.
Benefits: • Real time security alerting and DB2 auditing events
occurring on the z/OS operating system.• Security team alerted on threatening events and
malicious activity. It protects from Denial of Service Attacks, identifies internal patterns of security abuse and saves on hundreds of man-hours tracking through SMF reports to investigate a security breach. It also leverages other security products currently licensed to provide complete enterprise-wide threat management coverage and allows you to see what you want to see and when you want to see it.
