Automated Mainframe Field Expansion Service

Over time, data standards have been implemented and mixed across applications and databases- making change of any kind risky. Our solution provides:

  • Instant visibility into each field scheduled for expansion, its use and how it must be changed
  • Automated impact and cross-field analysis marking each line of code referencing any original columns or fields.
  • Automated, consistent application of changes, program changes logged for date and time
  • Increased flexibility for the future
