“Been there, done that”


Legacy migration refers to converting existing data to a new database or converting an existing application to a new language. When we convert from a legacy data store or other Database Management System (DBMS) to DB2 z/OS, there are some specific considerations. We must handle DB2 z/OS differently if we want superior performance and availability. There are creative solutions to consider and common mistakes to avoid. Are you converting an IDMS, IMS, VSAM/CICS, or batch application to DB2 for z/OS? We can help you. We’ve worked on major legacy migrations involving all of these technologies. Are you migrating from a non-DB2 DBMS to DB2 for z/OS? We can help you. We know how DB2 is different, and where the impacts will be.

In the past eight years we have been directly involved with seven major legacy migrations for companies that are household names. These migrations have involved new application languages, new database concepts, and have also included implementations where the database changed but the application did not. We know where the impacts are in these situations, and we know how to solve the performance problems.

Our level of legacy migration consulting can be adjusted to fit your needs. This can include anything from a one hour presentation to a long term contract.
