The Database Management Group charter is to install and support the Database Management Software (i.e. IMS and DB2) platforms on the z/OS mainframes. We provide large-scale database engines that all application environments (i.e. Web Servers, TSO, Personal Computer Applications, CICS, AS400s) use to access the data our clients have entrusted to us for safe and secure storage. This information is contained in several thousand data tables and indexes.
The Database Management Group designs, implements, and secures our clients' data using robust data analysis and storage methods. We also assist with performance and tuning reviews to implement efficient application systems and safeguard our client's information from loss, misuse, or corruption by unknown and unauthorized entities. We are actively engaged with the OCIO’s goals for Disaster recovery and continuous availability, and we implement specific Database solutions to achieve these goals.
