Save time and money by optimizing VSAM data access

Virtual Storage Access Method (VSAM) is an older IBM methodology to store data, yet many companies use VSAM data for their strategic applications. Due to the increasing amount of transactions on the mainframe, accessing VSAM data at the back end is causing numerous business problems. Increasing CPU costs, lengthening batch elapse times, increasing online wait times. Online and batch performance is under pressure, which leads to increasing operational risk. Save your business time and money by turbo charging VSAM performance with a solution called IAM.

What is IAM?
IAM is unique in the marketplace and already used in 200+ of the biggest mainframe sites across the globe. It is a transparent VSAM interface that requires no change to application programs/JCL and overcomes the physical limits of a VSAM dataset. The time to value is incredibly fast, so you can benefit from improvements below in hours/ days not months or years.

The typical performance expectations when converting a VSAM file to IAM:
Up to a 99% reduction in I/O’s which leads to many other business benefits:

  • MONEY: 20-70% reduction in CPU utilization
  • TIME: 20-90% reduction in batch elapsed times
  • THROUGHPUT: Up to 400% increase in number of online transactions processed
  • SPACE: 30-70% reduction in DASD space requirements
  • AVAILABILITY: VSAM reorgs need dataset to go offline; IAM offers 24x7 availability
