GT Software will introduce its new enterprise data access solution, DABEL at SHARE San Jose, March 5-10 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Providing mainframe data access has been a staple of GT Software for more than 20 years.  GT Software’s DABEL is the next generation in data access by providing an SMPE install and a container-like runtime server engine for z/OS.  All of the file definitions are done using a web based interface, with data access via JDBC or REST.  DABEL also integrates directly with GT Software’s Ivory® Service Architect™, so for existing Ivory clients adding data to SOAP or RESTful services is automatic.

GT Software will be offering DABEL using a subscription model to make DABEL budget-friendly for enterprise organizations.  Attendees of SHARE can learn more about DABEL firsthand by dropping by Booth #326 at SHARE San Jose.

In addition to premiering DABEL, GT Software will be participating in two technical sessions while in San Jose featuring client success stories for both IMS and CICS users.

GT Software invites SHARE San Jose attendees to the following sessions:

GT Software’s Senior Solutions Engineer Glenn Schneck will present an insurance customer case study as part of the session, “Bringing the API Economy to CICS – How Are Real Life Customers Doing It?” on Tuesday, March 7th at 11:15 a.m. in Room 210F at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center.  Schneck will share his experiences working with an American insurance organization describing how the team utilized APIs to modernize their CICS environment for increased customer satisfaction and improved productivity.

Representatives from American Airlines and IBM will join GT Software’s Director of z Systems Software: IMS & CICS, Dusty Rivers to present, “IMS Goes Mobile at American Airlines: Sophisticated Mainframe Orchestration for Mobility Takes Flight” on Thursday, March 9th at 8:00 a.m. in Room 114 of the San Jose McEnery Convention Center.  This technical session will explore how American Airlines streamlined the process of maintaining its fleet by building a robust mobile application empowering maintenance technicians to process work orders and access inventory at the point-of-service with a tablet by creating web services to access IMS mainframe data as APIs.

“SHARE San Jose is the perfect venue for us to debut our newest data access solution DABEL,” stated GT Software Chief Technology Officer Jeff Andrews.  “We really could not think of a better place to show off our new solution than this gathering of seasoned mainframe professionals.  Not only are we excited to launch DABEL, but we are honored to have the chance to share two customer success stories with the SHARE audience showing how our customers continue to find innovation by leveraging both CICS and IMS.”
