High Mainframe Cost


Poor Mainframe Value


In the competitive environment, survival depends on being cost efficient


Mainframe Inflexibility


Mainframes do not provide the flexibility needed to meet market
demands


Poor Mainframe Supportability


Fewer vendors, products for mainframe


Deficiency in mainframe skilled professionals


Mainframe roadmap risks losing valuable legacy


Porting COBOLs to Java on mainframe (UNIX) will not solve the
problems in many cases


Advancement of Technology

Why Migrate from Mainframe

Leading Edge Software Design and Development

5


What Best to Migrate


Applications requiring Flexibility & Supportability



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



What not to Migrate


Highly secure and sensitive data such as finance / military data
requiring B1 level security



What to Lookout for


Latest Technologies (Both Hardware & Software)


Success / Failure Stories, Reliable Resources for Guidance


Options

Do’s & Don'ts in Migration

Leading Edge Software Design and Development

6


Point of Inflection


M&A activity


Changes in regulatory environment


Vendor support discontinued


Launching new products and services



Business Pressures


Current IT not able to meet growth


Shrinking mainframe labor pool


High turn around time to implement changes



Cost Reductions


IT budget cuts announced


High maintenance costs of legacy systems


Renewal of lease is coming up


Expansion plans around infrastructure



Macrosoft can support in all phases beginning from assessment (Diagnostic
-

roadmap definition) and solution definition. We have proven tools &
methodologies for all these phases.


When to Think of Migration

Leading Edge Software Design and Development

7


Lift and Shift

-

The best option



Legacy Modernization / Transformation


Eg: Convert COBOL's to JAVA on mainframe UNIX


Limitations of flexibility & supportability remains



Replace with Packaged Applications



Eg: ERP systems



Workflow dictated by the package's functionality


Much business intelligence is lost



Rip and Replace



Not recommended due to the time, cost & risk involved


75% of such projects fails


Migration Options

Leading Edge Software Design and Development

8


Ecosystem analysis


Identify which applications are good candidates for moving off the mainframe


TCO and ROI analysis


Total Cost of Ownership & Return on Investment from a migration


Risk analysis


Review the current environment and IT deployment plans and assess the risk of each
scenario


Migration planning


Migration planning and scheduling is possibly the most critical element


Infrastructure and application design


Design both the target environment and the application architecture


Reverse / Forward engineering


Database, custom code & screen migration


MVS Change Management


System monitoring, management, and support


Performance Tuning, Security Audits

Process Steps [ Assess


Transform


Manage ]

COBOLS


Recompile COBOL's in target environments


99% COBOL reuse

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)


JCLs


Use KornShell Scripts as Job control language (Batch Processing retained)


All features of JCLs (eg: RESTART facility ) retained

We have standard tools for direct conversion of JCLs to Shell Scripts


VSAM / EBCDIC Data


Convert to ISAM / ASCII data

Our tools understand both formats, and transparently convert


DB2 / IMS DB / IDMS / ADABAS

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.

SUN MTP and similar tools

Custom Path


Java, XML, .NET


MQ Series


Messaging & Queuing


IBM MQ SDK (Software Development Kit) provides all necessary support for migration /
development in various platforms


IBM & Third Party Utilities

Example: Quikjob, FileAid, IEBGENER, IDCAMS, etc.


Automated tools (source code generators) to replace standard IBM utilities with Perl
Scripts, COBOL's or C


Third Party Tools




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
