CODE: ZL1_CMW12

LENGTH: 3 days

PRICE: $950.00

Description

Database Control (DBCTL) is an Information Management System (IMS) facility that provides CICS access to an IMS database subsystem.  DBCTL provides access for CICS transactions to IMS managed databases. Learn the activities required to install, tailor, maintain and support an IMS DBCTL system. Additionally, learn about aspects of the IMS architecture that apply to database management and attaching to CICS systems and transactions.

This course is taught in a Web conference medium with live instructor audio, and Internet Web conferenced materials. You have chat type Question and Answer (QandA) ability, plus live audio. The course is taught 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m Central time for six work days. Since the class is taught live using Web conferencing methods, you can attend from your home or work. Class durations are approximately one-half day, so you can still accommodate daily work responsibilities.

You will be contacted prior to class start to receive connection information, hardcopy student materials and other relevant information.
