Our Automated VSAM Migration solution includes the generation of a new relational database to replace the functionality, redefinitions, type-of-record indicators, and other data element structures that are currently part of most VSAM files. The new target database can reside on or off-mainframe, and can use any of the standard relational database management systems (SQL Server, Oracle, Db2, PostgreSQL).
Automated VSAM Migration provides a complete replacement for all legacy database functionality including multi-view records, occurring fields, indexes, and more. The resulting database is fully relational, primary keys and index definitions are automatically created, and all constraints are generated into the resulting DDL. Table spaces, indexes, table names, and column names are all generated according to your naming standards.
The VSAM data extract and relational load process is simple, straightforward, and fast. We can provide a number of extract variations for customers that have special requirements for a short VSAM data migration window. Our Data Migration software gives us numerous capabilities for tailoring your data migration so that the new database meets your requirements.
The VSAM files can be re-collected and processed through our Automated VSAM Migration software anytime throughout the project lifecycle. This prevents the need to put a freeze on changes to the VSAM files and structure, a huge win for critical business systems that change often.
