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

language in CICS.
