No. It's a Control System to manage your databases like VSAM, DB2 and to control communication systems like VTAM, BTAM, TCAM.

ummm... a little off here. Actually, VTAM or whatever terminal control program you are using controls CICS. And it is an interface between your files and the user so that they can be updated, etc... in real time instead of keying in updates and waiting for a batch run to apply them.

It does not control your files (or databases) but allows real time access to them.

CICS provids an interface between the application program and OS service, such as data access and communication acces.

CICS loads variety of application programs, coordinates their execution, manages the data transmission between programs and terminals, controls the access to data and maintains the integrity of that data. Since CICS is a transaction proceesing system it is called as online transaction processing(OLTP) software. It acts as an interface between application program and operating system services. Correct me if i am wrong.
