IBM z/OS V2.3

Digital transformation has become ubiquitous, driving higher data and transaction volumes and accelerating the rate of application changes made by enterprises. This creates an emerging need for a software-driven infrastructure that is more flexible and scalable, leading to better utilization of compute, storage, and network resources.

The response is a rapid evolution toward hybrid IT architectures that rely on combinations of off-premises and on-premises IT resources. This evolution has surfaced challenges in capacity, scale, availability, and throughput required to improve business performance, meet response time objectives, protect sensitive data and transactions, and minimize operational risk for an exceptional customer experience. All areas of IT are affected, including data center investment, development of next-generation cloud applications, and application lifecycle management.

IBM's z/OS V2.3 operating system delivers innovations designed to build the highly scalable and highly securable next-generation infrastructure needed. z/OS V2.3 delivers the performance, availability, scale, I/O support, and security to provide the infrastructure, on or off premises or provisioned as-a-service, that allows for instant reacting to business opportunities.

Companies need technologies that are smart, adaptive, trusted, and efficient in building an IT infrastructure that can respond quickly to change while reducing cost and driving profit. IBM z14 and z/OS V2.3 with world-class workload management are the right choice for infrastructure and workload needs as companies transition into next- generation computing. z/OS is designed to help clients keep applications and data available, system resources secure, server utilization high, and programming environments adaptable while maintaining compatibility for existing applications. With investment protection coupled with leading qualities of service, z/OS provides solution longevity and is a trusted foundation for next-generation IT solutions.

z/OS is designed to support companies' most mission-critical work while meeting stringent service levels, illustrated by clients that include the world's leading banks, financial services companies, healthcare enterprises, and governments.
