Modern Systems ensures that our customers’ teams have a full understanding of the existing IMS and post-conversion relational databases. DB-Shuttle® generates many reports and diagrams to assist with this knowledge-building process:
- Complete Entity Relationship Model (ERM) diagrams for the new relational databases
- Summary reports of the IMS file sizes, usage, etc.
- Matrix reports that relate files to tables, fields to columns, IMS records to extract programs, and more
- Date Finder reports that allow team members to define selected fields and columns to ensure that the migration addresses all requirements for date conversion
- Additional ad hoc reports that assist in further detailed identification of the unique characteristics of the IMS database and its conversion
