Accessing Oracle from Mainframe

One of our project is looking for information about accessing data present in ORACLE from IBM Mainframe applications (Z/OS). The data is lying on Oracle which is on a separate server and the IBM Mainframe system, by using COBOL programs need to access the data from Oracle.

I heard that by using 'Oracle Access Manager for CICS' we can access Oracle data directly from IBM mainframe applications (using COBOL program). If yes, then are there any limitations/considerations on the Oracle version we are using ? I heard that the gateway 'Oracle Access Manager for CICS/IMS' is only supported in older versions of Oracle(i.e. 10g) but not in 11g or 12c ? Is Oracle still supporting 'Oracle Access Manager for CICS/IMS' ? Has anyone done this or do you have suggestions? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
