Example Health code pattern series

About this series

This series of code patterns, which focuses on a fictional health care company, demonstrates how cloud technology can access data stored on z/OS Systems. You'll learn how to access large amounts of data stored on a Db2 database and a CICS application, and you'll use z/OS Connect and API Connect to expose the data through REST APIs. z/OS Connect gives you a way to unleash your existing market-differentiating IBM assets with RESTful APIs. API Connect allows automated API creation, simple discovery of assets, self-service access for developers, and built-in security and governance. z/OS Connect exposes the data from Db2 and CICS as REST APIs, then API Connect is used to create a way to easily access the APIs through an intuitive portal.
