The Astadia Migration Factory is a collection of tools, processes and technologies to accelerate and standardize a successful mainframe migration project. It allows both partners and clients to benefit from the extensive experience and industry leading software products that Astadia offers worldwide.
The development of these products started well over 20 years ago, and today includes coverage for legacy technologies such as COBOL, Assembler, IDMS and Natural ADABAS that can be migrated to, among others, Java or C# in combination with all the leading SQL-databases. The resulting applications are ready for deployment in the target platform of choice.
Over the past years, Astadia has invested considerable effort to automate the entire migration process in the Migration Factory:
-> Transformations and conversion
-> Testing of on-line and batch applications
-> Workflow driven based on a proven methodology
Since the “migration know-how” is embedded in this automation, the specific source (mainframe) and target know-how required from people working in the mainframe factory is limited to market available IT skills. No mainframe experience of many years is required in order to be a great contributor in the Factory. People can be trained to an operational level in a matter of weeks. As a result, the Astadia Migration Factory is highly scalable. Its scalability has already proven to be expandable to partners and clients alike.
The location of The Migration Factory™ can be established anywhere, at the location of choice for the partner or client. The objective of the factory is to achieve a successful and timely migration project while prioritizing a focus on risk and cost minimization. To achieve this, the Factory builds upon clear processes, automated migration and testing tools, as well as a unique methodology.
