CICS (Customer Information Control System)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
CICS (Customer Information Control System) is a family of client/server transaction-processing products that enables an organization to exploit applications and data on many different hardware and software platforms. It is an open platform for building an enterprise system. CICS client/server applications are portable across IBM and many non-IBM systems, interoperable across LANs and WANs, scalable up to 1,000s of users, and manageable from a single point of control. CICS is normally found in large online networks and provides application compatibility with platforms like IBM's AIX, MVS, OS/2, OS/400 and VSE, as well non-IBM environments such as Windows NT, HP, Digital, and Sun.
