North American Rail Company Migrates CA-IDMS to SQL Server

In order to address escalating software costs and a declining pool of talented support staff a North American rail company made the decision to move away from their mainframe. After carefully researching the options they decided to use Modern Systems to migrate their large CA-IDMS based applications running ADS/Online (ADS/O) to COBOL running on SQL Server. Modern Systems began the project with their standard assessment which revealed that of the 48,000 components existing in the legacy system only 14,000 components were actually used.
