Large enough to meet client requirements, yet small enough
to always receive senior management focus and attention
Example: Print Industry applications, ERP Systems
Windows has a large number of vendors and supporting products to choose from, whereas in Mainframe the list is limited
Macrosoft can support in all phases beginning from assessment (Diagnostic - roadmap definition) and solution definition. We have proven tools & methodologies for all these phases.
Eg: Convert COBOL's to JAVA on mainframe UNIX
Limitations of flexibility & supportability remains
Eg: ERP systems
Workflow dictated by the package's functionality
Much business intelligence is lost
Not recommended due to the time, cost & risk involved
75% of such projects fails
We have the know-how and tools for direct transformation of COBOL's
The target executables are .NET applications, DLLs and EXEs (with XML support)
We have standard tools for direct conversion of JCLs to Shell Scripts
Our tools understand both formats, and transparently convert
We have standardized migration strategy, processes and tools for database schema and data migration to various RDBMs such as SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 UDB, etc. Automated tools for data extraction, cleanup and format conversion helps to save much time. The migration workbench helps in validating the migration process, including access privileges and performance optimization.
[ Provides run-time environment for CICS COBOL applications ]
Example: Quikjob, FileAid, IEBGENER, IDCAMS, etc.
Example: SyncSort, Transformer, Anchor, Dialogue, EZ-Letter, etc.
We have partnership with many of the third party tool vendors, who provided know-how on directly transforming to Windows version of their mainframe tools
