A large logistics firm in the United States has teamed up with Modern Systems to engage in an initial assessment of their legacy environment consisting primarily of COBOL, IMS, and DB2. A Mainframe Assessment includes full definition of the goals and areas of concentration prior to data collection. Modern Systems will use our DB-Shuttle® automation technology to perform a very detailed, targeted assessment of the entire mainframe environment. This assessment will provide the ability to fully define a modernization project plan including assignments, responsibilities, timeframes, and costs. This service:
- Ensures business rules and technical use cases are documented
- Ensures no critical requirements or functionality are left out of the target state design
- Includes option selection analysis and cost modeling for modernization roadmap
- Saves time and money by using automated technologies
In this case, the goal is to define their in scope components and solidify next steps for modernizing their mainframe applications and data tier.
