CICS, Customer Information Control System, is the premier OLTP (On-Line Transaction Processing) product family from IBM. CICS (pronounced "KIX" or "KICKS" by many, including the IBM CICS developers in Hursley, England) is sometimes referred to as a DB/DC (Data Base/Data Communication) system and recently celebrated its 27th birthday. In these sessions, a brief introduction to CICS will be provided as well as a discussion of the use of the COBOL programming language in CICS.
