IMS DB/DC for Technical Support Training

This course introduces and explains in detail IMS on-line operations. It provides the essential cross-training for systems support specialists from parallel disciplines such as z/OS, CICS, COBOL, or DB2. Attendees will learn effective IMS system administration, based on a comprehensive insight into the structure and function of the IMS processes and resources, together with the parameters and operator commands that control them. Typical problems are demonstrated, emphasizing the identification of the appropriate skills and the utility procedures required to resolve them. Practical exercises reinforce the formal tuition sessions. These include hands-on access to the IVP sample applications, together with recovery from various system failures. Following this course, attendees will be able to provide standby support to their IMS colleagues (following an overview of the standards, conventions, and procedures, used in their own IMS department). No Machine Labs.


Systems personnel who will participate in the support of system maintenance, problem determination and tuning in the IMS environment.


A general understanding of MVS, ISPF, VSAM and at least one year of experience in providing technical support to MVS, CICS, COBOL, WebSphereMQ, or a similar area.
