CICS

Short for Customer Information Control System, a TP monitor from IBM that was originally developed to provide transaction processing for IBM mainframes. It controls the interaction between applications and users and lets programmers develop screen displays without detailed knowledge of the terminals being used.

CICS is also available on non-mainframe platforms including the RS/6000, AS/400 and OS/2 -based PCs.
