Increase business agility by virtualizing physical resources
COPE transforms physical resources in various stages of IMS application development and testing into virtualized and extensible representations of this same set of physical resources. All that a developer, QA specialist, or database professional needs to do is change a set of required parameters, which COPE then copies and compiles to create virtual IMS systems.
- Virtualize an IMS subsystem with multiple versions of a given application, satisfying needs for development, integration test, UAT, pre-prod, and other desired environments
- Allow multiple copies of identically named objects to exist within a single IMS system without modifying application program names and libraries
- Share or have unique databases, Db2 table programs, and MFS formats for each system
- Apply an extensive set of ISPF-based applications to allow IMS objects such as programs and databases, and MFS and DYNALLOC members to be saved and compiled easily
