The next 50 years of IMS – Invitation for the Annual GSE IMS Conference -
Thursday 15 November, Antwerp, Belgium 

 

 

IBM’s IMS has been around since 1968 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary. 

Proposed as a solution to a problem – support NASA keeping inventory of parts for the Apollo program’s massive Saturn V – IMS has evolved and grown significantly.

 

IMS has clearly stood the test of time and is in no way reliant on its past successes but continues to evolve to maintain it leading role to deliver the highest levels of availability, performance, security and scalability for OLTP in the industry. 

And surely this will be addressed by our speakers from ABN/AMRO, KBC, IBM and BMC in their respective sessions; new ways to define and use IMS resources, encrypting IMS data, integrate analytics into IMS workloads, marrying IMS with the API economy …

 

In fact, the long life of IMS is the result of how adaptable it is. Even when Db2 became an alternative approach extracting value from data, IMS never lost its popularity as the transactional workhorse for very large workloads.
