MAPPER Conversion Tools Service

Large UNISYS mainframe companies often face the problem of ongoing costs and difficulty to maintain important business applications built on MAPPER platforms. We recognize these applications embody important business rules and have done extensive work to minimize the risk of moving MAPPER applications to the “Cloud.”

Astadia has developed an automatic transformation platform that will take native MAPPER applications and transform them to Java/SQL, thereby making them “Cloud Ready” applications. This technology enables our clients to move all MAPPER applications and databases to the “Cloud,” saving them large amounts of money by eliminating old, proprietary UNISYS software and hardware.

Benefits of MAPPER Conversion include:

  • Enables UNISYS users to move MAPPER applications and databases to the Cloud
  • Reduces the risk and cost of modernizing legacy systems
  • Enhances usability and user experience
  • Eliminates the cost of legacy UNISYS hardware and software licenses
  • Simplifies ongoing maintenance
  • Preserves critical business rules built on MAPPER platform
  • Support staff now uses industry standard JAVA/SQL to maintain and enhance the application

 

The MAPPER Conversion Process

Our platform will automatically transform native MAPPER applications into JAVA/SQL. The original MAPPER source code will be transformed using Astadia’s intellectual property. Once a MAPPER Application is transformed to JAVA/SQL, parallel testing and connections to other existing systems will begin.

  • Evaluate MAPPER Applications for automatic transformation
  • Estimate the time and cost to transform MAPPER Applications to JAVA/SQL
  • Develop project plans and assign staff
  • Process the MAPPER Application source code for transformation
  • Test and deploy newly transformed JAVA/SQL to replace the original MAPPER Application

 

MAPPER Conversion Safety and Security

Our professionals will perform all client work in a safe and secure environment. The work will be performed at your site, and at secure Astadia facilities, as appropriate.

  • Assign Astadia professionals with appropriate security credentials
  • Maintain a safe and secure project environment
  • Secure and protect your Intellectual Property
  • Deliver converted MAPPER Application project results directly to you
  • Test and integrate newly transformed JAVA/SQL Application
  • Complete and secure project

 

MAPPER Conversion Deliverables

We’ll produce a complete profile of your target MAPPER project, which typically lasts several weeks. At the project conclusion, you will receive a transformed application and database, and documentation, per the specifications defined in the planning stage of the project.

  • Discuss project plans with you, including all security-related issues
  • Deliver a preliminary package to help you prepare for the project
  • Meet with you on a regular basis to discuss project status
  • Present you with final project results
  • Project concludes and we discuss next steps
