Implementing Data Masking and Data Subset with IMS Unload File Sources

Implementation Scenario

Implementation Scenario

In this scenario, design a data masking and data subset application that uses PowerExchange to read IMS unload file sources with multiple record types on
z/OS
and write to IMS unload file targets on z/OS.
You have already installed and configured PowerCenter and TDM on the appropriate machines.
The implementation includes the following host and client machines:
  • A z/OS machine with IMS unload file data sources.
    On this machine, you will install PowerExchange 9.6.0. You will also write to the IMS unload file targets on this machine.
  • A Linux, UNIX, or Windows machine on which the Informatica domain and the PowerCenter Integration Service are installed. Optionally, this machine also has Informatica Data Explorer components installed.
    On this machine, you will install PowerExchange 9.6.0.
  • Windows machine with the PowerCenter Client installed.
    On this machine, you will install PowerExchange 9.6.0, including the PowerExchange Navigator. You will run the PowerExchange Navigator on this system to create data maps. You will use the PowerCenter Designer to import these data maps to create source definitions, and you will run the PowerCenter Workflow Manager to define PowerExchange connections and data sources and edit session properties.
  • Windows or UNIX machine with the PowerCenter repository 9.6.0 and TDM Server 9.6.0 installed.
  • Web browser host from which you log in to Test Data Manager.
You can install PowerCenter on an LPAR running zLinux and use HiperSockets for communications between PowerCenter on one LPAR and the PowerExchange Listener on the LPAR that contains the data source. In this configuration, you must install PowerExchange both on the LPAR with PowerCenter and on the LPAR with the PowerExchange Listener.
