  DIS mainframe platforms operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Mainframe operations are housed in the secure DIS data center, where mainframe operations provided to more than 100 state agencies include: 

  • Online processing using an IBM systems software that enables transactions entered from remote terminals to be processed concurrently by application programs.
  • Batch job processing, which can be submitted from remote stations, online terminals, over the counter, or automatically submitted via job-scheduling software.
  • Database systems, with customer support services including: software installation, testing, implemention and maintenance; software problem diagnosis and correction; performance monitoring and turning; and direct customer assistance.
