Customer Information Control System

CICS Transaction Server family

Green check Please! Verify all details or suggestions with the appropriate vendor and / or vendor's manuals.

CICS stands for Customer Information Control System. It is a general-purpose transaction processing subsystem for the z/OS operating system. CICS provides services for running an application online, by request, at the same time as many other users are submitting requests to run the same applications, using the same files and programs.

CICS manages the sharing of resources, the integrity of data and prioritization of execution, with fast response. CICS authorizes users, allocates resources (real storage and cycles), and passes on database requests by the application to the appropriate database manager (such as DB2). We could say that CICS acts like, and performs many of the same functions as the z/OS operating system.
