PIE/CICS Availability Plus for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
Availabiltiy Plus is an optional PIE/CICS component that provides dramatic CICS transaction response time improvements. An important part of improving response time is reducing the time a task waits in a queue before being dispatched. Typically, as the load increases on a CICS system, more tasks are queued waiting for system resources. At some point, average response time becomes a function of queue length. With a light load (less than 50% CPU usage), queue wait times are usually negligible. However, as the load approaches about 50-70% of CICS capacity, queuing time begins to increase exponentially.

PIE/CICS NetGate for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
NetGate is an optional PIE/CICS component that allows users to access multiple VTAM applications from MultiCICS sessions. With PIE/CICS MultiCICS and NetGate working together, users can access up to a maximum of 99 simultaneous applications. Sessions support any applications running within a CICS region or MRO complex.

PIE/CICS NetMizer for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
NetMizer is an optional PIE/CICS component that reduces the size of 3270 data streams before they are sent across a network. NetMizer uses a combination of data compression techniques and optimization methods to reduce the overall volume of network traffic. As a result, network congestion is reduced and the average transaction response time improves at most sites with less inherent delay. NetMizer uses a combination of compression and optimization algorithms. Compressed data streams can be as much as 60% to 95% smaller than their original size. NetMizer also uses a variety of optimization methods that reduce the number of data streams required to sustain current screen images on user terminals.

PIE/CICS NonStop CICS for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
NonStop CICS is an optional PIE/CICS component and runs multiple, fully initialized regions. Backup regions are available immediately when problems occur. NonStop CICS re-assigns users while recovery procedures continue in the failed region. NonStop CICS does not have to wait for the entire period to complete a dump. Usually, a dump takes two minutes or less. In most cases, users are re-assigned to the backup region immediately after a failure. NonStop CICS handles both local and remote terminals. Unlike XRF, NonStop CICS does not need to continuously monitor CICS regions. Accordingly, the performance overhead of running NonStop CICS is less.

PIE/TSO Dynamic Steplib for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
Dynamic Steplib allows you to change library concatenations while you are logged on, using a simple command. Dynamic Steplib improves performance, both for your logon and for the system as a whole. Searching the STEPLIB is a resource intensive process. So it is critical to make the STEPLIB as small as possible. Yet you have scores of applications. You certainly don't want all of them in the LPA and link list. So, to be run, the applications have to be in the STEPLIB. With TSO alone, these applications have to be added to the STEPLIB in the logon procedure,. If you put the dataset for every application in the STEPLIB of the general logon procedure, it can take a long time and a lot of resources to finally find an application toward the bottom of the list.

PIE/TSO Logon Director for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
The Logon Director allows PIE/CICS to log users on to TSO without requiring to enter their user IDs and passwords. The Logon Director can also save TSO passwords in encrypted form, so that PIE/CICS can use them.

PIE/TSO Network Access for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
Network Access allows you to run VTAM applications in your MultiTSO sessions. You can access any TSO, CICS, IMS, PROFS, etc., system on any CPU in your network. With Network Access, application programmers can have ISPF, SDSF, TSO, CICS, etc.,available to edit, review output, submit jobs, test transactions, and compare results.

PIE/TSO Performance Group Manager for z/OS
Company:
UNICOM Systems
