What are your options for moving existing systems to a new environment (e.g. IDMS to DB2 or IDMS to SQL)? As a leading authority on software migrations, Forecross can help you figure that out.
The options that need to be considered for most applications include:
- Migrating the application (manually or automated)
- Re-developing the application

- Learn everything possible about the subject applications that affect the migration decision, such as size, complexity, database structure, maintainability, interfaces to other applications or systems, degree of conformance with standards and structure of related strategic systems, degree to which the application meets end-user demands, responsiveness of the application to change, etc.
- Recommend alternatives based on our in-depth experience in software conversions and what we learn from the assessment of your code and during the onsite seminar
