Our IDMSX conversion strategy includes the generation of a new relational database to replace the functionality, set relationships, indexes, and data structures that are currently part of the IDMSX network database. The new target database can reside on or off the mainframe, and can use any of the standard relational database management systems - Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM Db2, PostgreSQL or EnterpriseDB.
Modern Systems also supports the conversion of the applications that use the IDMSX database, including COBOL (with or without TPMS) and SCL, in addition to many specific 4GL products such as Application Master (AM) and DELTA.
Replacement of Database Functionality through IDMSX Conversion
Our IDMSX conversion solution provides a complete replacement for all IDMSX database functionality including multi-member sets, chained and sorted sets, bill-of-material structures, group and occurring fields, DBKEY usage, and more. Primary keys, foreign keys, and index definitions are automatically created, and all constraints are generated into the resulting DDL. Table spaces, indexes, table names, and column names are all generated according to your naming standards.
IDMSX Data Conversion
The IDMSX data extract and relational load process is simple, straight-forward, and fast. Modern Systems can provide a number of extract variations for sites that have special requirements for a short IDMSX data conversion window. Special Modern Systems workbenches provide additional capabilities for tailoring your data migration so that the new database meets your needs and requirements.
Visibility and Knowledge Building
Modern Systems also ensures that customer development teams have a full understanding of existing IDMSX and post-conversion relational databases. Our workbenches generate many reports and diagrams to assist with this knowledge-building process as part of the IDMSX conversion solution.
