Understanding critical mainframe applications can be difficult. When IMS and DB2 are introduced into the mix, it further complicates this issue. Determining application relationships to and from DB2 and IMS entities becomes particularly difficult. Ever try to trace a DB2 column back to the related program data items? DevEnterprise, along with the recent addition of being able to collect DB2 information, has now introduced improved IMS support. You will now see valuable information on your IMS databases, including PCB and PSB information. For online IMS applications the Transaction to Program relationship will be identified. The Impact analysis function of DevEnterprise can now assist greatly in identifying the application relationships to the DB2 and IMS entities.
