Termos e Definições - I
IBM (International Business Machines)
A multibillion-dollar IT hardware, system and services vendor headquartered in Armonk, New York. Founded in 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company (the IBM name was adopted in 1924), the company originally made business machines such as time recorders, tabulators and punch cards. It began manufacturing electronic-computing systems in the 1950s, and thereafter became the world's largest computer company.
ICB (Integrated Cluster Bus)
An IBM high-speed coupling link used to connect Parallel Sysplex nodes to coupling facilities (CFs). See Parallel Sysplex and CF.
ICDA (Integrated Cached Disk Array)
A family of storage products for the IBM AS/400 from EMC.
ILM (IBM License Manager)
Planned technology announced by IBM as part of the zSeries product launch in October 2000. The ILM monitor, which was to be a free part of the operating system, would have allowed IBM and other participating vendors to supply usage information to determine license compliance and provide a vehicle for software asset management. In 2002, IBM announced that it would not deliver ILM for its zSeries mainframes, and that it had disbanded the development team.
An IBM document-imaging product, introduced in 1988, that provided generic application software for using document images in common user environments. It was eventually subsumed into IBM's Content Manager product.
IMS (Information Management System)
IMS é uma ferramenta utilizada para Gerenciar conexões com banco de dados DB2. Esta ferramenta também pode ser utilizada como bando de dados e também possui interface com usuario.
An IBM mainframe system environment for managing complex database and transaction-processing requirements. The IMS environment is made available with two IBM licensed programs: a database management system called IMS Database Manager (IMS DB), and a transaction-processing monitor called IMS Transaction Manager (IMS TM). IMS applications run in what are called message-processing regions, each in its own address space. They communicate as needed with the IMS control region, which can be located in a separate address space. See IMS DB and IMS TM.
IMS DB (IMS Database Manager)
An mainframe database management system (DBMS) that works within IBM's Information Management System (IMS) environment. It supports a hierarchical data model, with optional extensions for some network data model features. IMS DB may be used with the IMS Transaction Monitor (TM) or Customer Information Control System (CICS) transaction-processing monitors to provide online access to the database, or it may be used without a monitor for batch processing. See CICS, DBMS and IMS TM.
IMS TM (IMS Transaction Manager)
A licensed program that works within IBM's Information Management System (IMS) environment. IMS TM is used to create online transaction processing (OLTP) applications. See IMS and OLTP.
IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream)
An IBM format for sending files to a printer. It provides an interface to all-points-addressable printers that make possible the presentation of pages containing a mix of different types of data, such as high-quality text, raster image, vector graphics and bar codes. In addition, IPDS provides commands for the management of printing resources such as fonts and overlays; for the control of device functions such as paper sourcing and stacking; for the handling of exception functions; and for an acknowledgment protocol at the data stream level.
ISPF (Interactive System Productivity Facility)
An IBM-licensed program used for writing application programs. It serves as a full-screen editor and dialogue manager and provides a means of generating standard screen panels and interactive dialogues between the application programmer and the terminal user.
