This document provides information about prerequisites for IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ for DB2® for z/OS® and its features and components.
Note: End of service for this release is September 30, 2015.
Optim uses DSNREXX from the SDSNLOAD library to obtain information regarding the DB2 release Optim is being installed on. The DSNREXX plan must be bound and accessible by the Optim installer.
The DB2 load library containing the DSNREXX load module must be made available either by the TSO logon procedure (STEPLLIB or ISPLLIB), the system link list or the link pack area.

IBM Mashup Center
IBM® Mashup® Center TM is an end-to-end enterprise mashup platform that enables the rapid creation, sharing, and discovery of reusable application building blocks (widgets, feeds, mashups) that can be easily assembled into new applications or leveraged within existing applications - delivering lower development costs, rapid ROI, quick delivery of applications, and greater productivity.
Optim designer can be used to build and discover models for Optim on distributed and z/OS platforms. You can also use Optim designer to run Optim processes on these platforms and to create interoperability services based on process requests that can be published to the Optim manager environment.
InfoSphere Data Architect 18.104.22.168 is a prerequisite for designer. You can use Installation Manager to install InfoSphere Data Architect before or at the same time as the designer. The shared libraries are also a requirement for the designer.
Optim manager is a web application that you can use to configure, run, monitor, and manage services and to configure components that are used to run these services.
