Can I apply CA OPS/MVS z/OS and CICS compatibility maintenance before the operating system and CICS are really upgraded?
We add the necessary code to make our software compatible with newer releases of 3rd party products. The PTFs can be applied prior to the z/OS and CICS upgrade.
It is important to follow the installation instructions of the OPS/MVS compatibility maintenance to insure operational success. The details may require some tasks be performed after the third party software upgrade has occurred.
