A second edition of a book can be an incredible amount of work. Our recently published IBM Press book, An Introduction to IMS, Second Edition, is no exception. In fact it took a village of authors – Barbara Klein, Richard Alan Long, Kenneth Ray Blackman, Diane Lynne Goff, Stephen Paul Nathan, Moira McFadden Lanyi, Margaret M. Wilson, John Butterweck, Sandra L. Sherrill – to update the book. At over 550 pages – it’s a big effort, packed with great content.
Given the move to ebooks – this book was going to be pure “e” all the way. So if you want it on your e-reader or PDF form – you are all set. The publisher has decided to also deliver this book in hardcopy – but that’s a few months away.
Version 12? Version 11? Version 10? it’s all there for you.
More than a complete tutorial, this book provides up-to-date examples, cases, problems, solutions, and a complete glossary of IMS terminology. Prerequisite reading for the current IBM IMS Mastery Certificate Program, it reflects major recent enhancements such as dynamic information generation; new access, interoperability and development tools; improved SOA support, and much more. Whether you’re a DBA, database developer, or system programmer, it brings together all the knowledge you’ll need to succeed with IMS in today’s mission-critical environments
