On June 16, 2011, IBM observed its 100th anniversary as a corporation—a significant milestone, and one that we are
celebrating throughout the year.
We are pleased to present you with our feature article from Wellpoint, the largest
health benefits company in America. In this article, they highlight their proof-of-concept to modernize a solution that provides
online access to mainframe data that resides in IMS™. Read the article for their proof-of-concept results!
We also highlight some recent enhancements to IMS SOAP Gateway in the areas of security, performance, application development,
and server administration; how the IMS Recovery Expert tool can be used to implement IMS disaster restart solutions to automate
and simplify IMS disaster recovery procedures; and how business process integration for IMS applications maximizes the reuse
of IMS assets in new applications for business innovation and reduced costs.
We know that you also enjoy seeing
our I am IMS profiles. In this issue, we showcase three more very interesting people, so you won’t want to miss those.
We continue to offer IMS regional user groups, workshops, and other events around the world and via teleconferences.
As always, visit www.ibm.com/ims for the latest information.
We are always looking for feedback from you on any
IMS topic. Feel free to send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
