Raincode QIX

Raincode QIX, the CICS emulator

Raincode QIX is a CICS® emulator for .NET and Azure platforms. It is the ideal companion for the Raincode COBOL compiler and the Raincode PL/I compiler.

Raincode QIX isn’t another way to run your CICS® applications on a cheaper but equally inflexible platform. It allows you to evolve to a more agile, more versatile system. In addition to your existing COBOL and PL/I CICS applications, QIX also allows you to develop new transactions in C# or VB.NET.

Raincode QIX is not the end of the story, it’s a step towards a more agile and integrated future.

  • .NET native
  • Based on WCF
  • Robust, distributed and scalable architecture by avoiding a central component
  • Support for dynamically added processing servers
  • Support for PL/I, COBOL and C#
