Mainframe Data Migration

Mainframe Data Migration has two major elements: data conversion and data migration. Typically the two elements go hand-in-hand, but there are exceptions. In the case of data conversion, you may be converting from one database product to another, while remaining on the same operating system platform. In the case of data migration, a database is converted, then migrated to a different operating system platform.

Mainframe Data Migration Process

The Mainframe Data Migration begins with discussing your goals and objectives for the project. We’ll identify databases and operating systems that are directly involved, and review technical details that may impact the project, including the application source code, JCL, etc.

  • Work with you to gather detailed technical data about your environment
  • Develop a project plan, including the scope of the Mainframe Data and management of security-related issues
  • Assign staff from both companies to manage the project
  • Set processes, deliverables and timelines
  • Deliver a preliminary package to help you prepare for the project
  • Meet with you on a regular basis to discuss the project status
  • Present final project results to you
  • Project concludes and we discuss next steps
