    Dear CA MICS Stakeholders,

     

    We are reaching out for feedback, around an enhancement we are delivering as part of the CA MICS 14.2 Release on z/OS 2.3 Support for the MICS VCC Component.

     

    One of our Lead engineers, has come across the following VCC related fields, for IBM Transparent Cloud Tiering (TCT) and we are curious if your site uses TCT and desire these fields as part of this Support Enhancement?
