So as handling the SRB is a job for an experienced pilot, IBM only give out flying licences to people it trusts. CA is trusted to fly the plane with R17 but CA is not allowed to let other people fly the plane.
IDMS on its own is a great thing to push out to ol' ZIIPy brain. Lots of the R17 code can run on it freeing up the main processor. I am getting 25-30% on ZIIP. I am sure that over time more and more of the code will be converted to SRB. The problem comes when you get some NON CA code running in IDMS. This code doesn't have a licence and that means we have to come back to the old TCB and run on the Central Processor.
The code I am talking about is DB Procedures and Exits not written by CA. It may be home written or it may come from a 3rd party vendor. This seems to slow things down a lot and use valuable CP time.

Our CA IDMS Development Team is currently working on a new feature to enable ADS runtime to execute in SRB mode and be eligible to run on the zIIP specialty engine! This allows our customers to support workloads on zIIP for lower costs! We are looking for customers to join our Customer Validation Program. We have monthly WebEx meetings to discuss all new features and get feedback. As a participate in the program, you get early access to the New Feature APARs. You can apply and test the APARs in your environment, and provide input to us for change. Our next call is coming up October 16th, 2018. Please use this link to register: validate.ca.com

Nakesha: I am interested in customer validation program. When I signup, which open opportunity is this?
That is great news to hear! The project is titled, "CA IDMS 19 Enhancements". Let me know if you have any trouble.
Sorry, the only project I see is CA IDMS 19.0 Validation Opportunity. Is that the project?
Yes that is the one. Once you get in, then the project name will appear as CA IDMS 19 Enhancements.
I have sent you a direct invite by email for the Validation Registration opportunity. Let me know if you still can't access the site. Note, we are in the process of adding the Feature APARs currently.
I did get the link and have completed the pre-registration form.
The ADS zIIP Enablement feature is now published, PTF SO06651 for IDMS Release 19.0!! Thank you and let us know if you have any questions!
