Application developers have their own set of challenges. Their goal is to deliver well written applications, while meeting their deadlines. Given a set of tools, application developers can become more productive and less dependent on the DBA and Systems staff.
Common challenges for Application Developers that are striving to maximize application performance range from:
- Eliminating unnecessary binds or identifying potential access path changes, to editing data values, to creating valid test environments to archiving data to less expensive direct access storage devices (DASD) and tape.
- Enhancing database availability by minimizing the downtime associated with an IMS batch application failure, automating the manual tasks associated with backing out database updates after a failure, and decreasing the time to market with IMS Connect applications.
