1) Humana leverages several mainframe-based transaction /
DBMS technologies, such as CA-IDMS, CICS, DB2, and WebSphereMQ.
2) For some enterprise business solutions, multiple
transaction/DBMS technologies are used together, where multiple transactions
are executed in sequence, each providing a key role/function in order to
accomplish a particular business function.
3) For Humana, CA-IDMS is a strategic solutions component,
and as such, the IDMS transaction execution and performance achieve must be
measured and tracked for its component function in the overall business
- IBM currently provides critical identification information (NETNAME /
UOWID -- taken from FMH5), permitting the customer to
correlate the related transactions for analysis and management reporting.
Currently, this key NETNAME/UOWID information is not recorded by CA-IDMS for the
purposes of enterprise mainframe transaction correlation.
4) Humana requests CA enhance the CA-IDMS SMF data (PMAM
task section) to record this NETNAME/UOWID information and as well consider
how CA-IDMS can contribute this key information for transactions passing
through IDMS. With this additional identification data, the MICS IDMS Analyzer
can then be enhanced to capture the information for cross-technology
For reference purposes, the CA SupportConnect issue
#15933077 was opened with the CA MICS IDMS Analyzer, and the MICS R&D / support
organization requested that the CA-internal issue #15978030 also be mentioned in
