Legacy migration refers to converting existing data to a new database or converting an existing application
to a new language. When we convert from a legacy data store or other Database Management System (DBMS) to DB2 z/OS,
there are some specific considerations. We must handle DB2 z/OS differently if we want superior performance and
availability. There are creative solutions to consider and common mistakes to avoid. Are you converting an IDMS, IMS,
VSAM/CICS, or batch application to DB2 for z/OS? We can help you. We’ve worked on major legacy migrations involving
all of these technologies. Are you migrating from a non-DB2 DBMS to DB2 for z/OS? We can help you. We know how
DB2 is different, and where the impacts will be.
In the past eight years we have been directly involved with seven major legacy migrations for
companies that are household names. These migrations have involved new application languages, new database concepts,
and have also included implementations where the database changed but the application did not. We know where the
impacts are in these situations, and we know how to solve the performance problems.
Our level of legacy migration consulting can be adjusted to fit your needs. This can include
anything from a one hour presentation to a long term contract.
