Our Automated Archiving solution allows you to retain and access archived data and application source code by migrating these assets to repositories on modern, distributed systems. This removes the crippling cost of retaining the original mainframe infrastructure.
Automated Data Migration
Companies harness the power of modern ERP systems to replicate some, or all of the functionality of the legacy applications they are replacing. Implementing these complex ERP systems is a monumental task that requires hard work and out-of-the-box thinking to achieve success. And, when the dust settles, there can be components of the old system that don't fit into the new ERP, but need to be retained.
Most compliance standards that govern data retention insist that data remains in place and accessible for up to a decade or more. As a result, many companies opt to retain pieces of legacy systems to run alongside a new ERP deployment to meet those retention requirements. Unfortunately, this strategy is expensive. To make matters more complicated, it's expensive to make the archived data accessible by way of the new ERP system too.
We can archive non-relational databases such as IDMS, IMS-DB, Adabas, and VSAM by converting them into relational equivalents. Then, we refactor the applications (typically online applications), complete with screens, to a modern language like Java or C#, and present them in a web browser. Here you can use them to access the data the same way you did before, but without the legacy infrastructure or licensing costs.
