Our Automated IDMS Migration solution includes the generation of a new relational database to replace the functionality, set relationships, indexes, and data structures that are currently part of the IDMS (or IDMSX) network database. 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 IDMS Migration provides a complete replacement for all IDMS database functionality including multi-member sets, chained and sorted sets, bill-of-material structures, group and occurring fields, DBKEY usage, and more. Primary keys, foreign 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 IDMS 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 IDMS 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 IDMS database definition can be re-collected and processed through our Automated IDMS Migration software anytime throughout the project lifecycle. This prevents the need to put a freeze on changes to the IDMS structure, a huge win for critical business systems that change often.
