The Raincode CICS emulator for Microsoft .NET

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

Raincode CICS isn’t just 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 applications, CICS also allows you to develop new transactions in C# or VB.NET.

Raincode CICS emulator is a huge step towards a more agile and integrated future for your mainframe applications.
