Rocket ICE is an optional add-on to Rocket AS. It extends the potential uses of AS further with very high speed analysis of large volumes of z Systems data. With more than 300 specially-made analysis functions/commands—and no limits to the amount of data that ICE can handle—you can quickly work with all your data, not just a pre-aggregated set, when creating BI applications using z Systems data.
Rocket ICE enables ultra-fast analysis of limitless volumes of DB2 and mainframe data. Rapidly work with all of your data—whether or not it’s structured or aggregated. With ICE, end users can manipulate and query user data, write user-defined reports, build graphic output, and define user-controlled data entry and data validation. With the ICE Reporting System, you have the ability to validate your data, enter more data as needed and produce business-critical reports—complete with graphics. Better yet, the reporting system can integrate with your application prototype environment and financial planning system if they have been incorporated into ICE.
Rocket ICE is the authorized replacement product for users of IBM ICE (program number 5668-897), previously known as IBM Info Center/Enhanced and IC/1.
