  4. 4. 15 million gigabytes of production data managed by IMS $3.0 trillion ($US) per day is transferred through one customer 200+ million users served every day 375 million accounts…..for one customer 46,000 transactions per second…..on a single IMS system © 2012 IBM Corporation 4
  5. 5. More than 75% of the world’s100 Top 25 companies listed in the Fortune 100 entrust their business to IMS every second © 2012 IBM Corporation 5
  6. 6. What our clients tell us “The IMS Repository and the MSC TCP/IP features in IMS V12 allow us easier maintenance; The IMS Repository will bring us more simplicity, security, and reliability, as we can share it between the systems.” “With the IMS Repository and RDDS feature of DRD, we can manage our system resources much more easily; change management is more efficient and faster.” “We havent seen anything that can process as much data, with as much reliability, as IMS.” “We use the proven reliability of IMS to support the most critical application in the Mjo e e yp v e a r n rg ro id r company.” “IMS Callout, ODBM, and the SOAP Gateway allow us to keep data in distributed systems in sync with that in the legacy IMS systems, helping maintain inventory control.” “Due to its high performance and reliability, IMS has been part of CECA’s core business for the last 25 years, to deliver the financial services demanded by our federated savings banks.” “We are extremely pleased with the results regarding installation, configuration, tuning, new processes, operations management, and security management.” © 2012 IBM Corporation 6

  28. 28. Solution The new solution, using IMS Connect, WAS, and DataPower, enabled them to implement a solution that was better aligned to their overall SOA strategy and that provided them with a web services interface. Wellpoint is the largest health benefits company in the United States by membership. In 2010, they embarked on a proof-of-concept to modernize a proprietary connectivity solution used to access claims data residing in IMS.Benefit ResultsAs a result of implementing these new  Java media performance was 17% fastertechnologies, Wellpoint now has a new round triparchitecture that is faster, uses less  .NET median performance was 60%mainframe CPU and enables mainframe faster round triptransaction avoidance throughconfiguration-based side caching. These  Mainframe connectivity related CPU waschanges enabled them to meet their overall reduced 20-59%objectives of improving performance and  RPC calls were processed 200% fasterlower costs. © 2012 IBM Corporation 28
