Moving Data and Program Logic From VSAM to RDBMS


Yggdrasil Analysis with DataMorph extensions covers

  • complete software inventory (must include JCL)
  • consistency check
  • determine code and files which are subject to the DataMorph project
  • generate and execute VSAM data validation programs to determine data field types within VSAM records
  • Create project blueprint and project recommendations
  • Agree on future architecture, model of operation and project details
  • ⇒ ITMS delivers a binding fix price offer

Project Execution

  • Create test environment
  • Generate DataMorph converters for programs, data definitions, and data
  • Test DataMorph converters
  • Build DataMorph modernisation factory
  • Run factory on actual programs and data.
    Adjust converters where necessary.
    ⇒ Repeat this step until the factory produces - without any manual
        intervention - a complete operational set of programs and RDBMS data
  • Perform final transformation
  • Roll-out to production on the O/S of your choice.

The Yggdrasil/DataMorph analysis makes sure,
all relevant decisions are made
before the project starts.

The modernized programs and data
are deployed directly to the new platform, e.g. Linux.
