The Asysco IBM COBOL migration solution takes any application developed in COBOL, using CICS or IMS TP monitors and underlying storage (IMS-DB, DB2, VSAM, sequential files) and automatically convert these into a fully identical application, but designed to run within an alternative environment on open systems. The new application eliminates legacy constructs like CICS, IBM, and JCL and, instead, uses modern and industry-standard development tools such as C# .NET, Java, relational databases, PowerShell, Python, and so on to allow flexible application integration and extension.
The COBOL logic can stay in COBOL or be modernized to C# or Java.
Through our automated framework, the Asysco IBM COBOL migration solution migrates the entire mainframe ecosystem:
- Code (Assembler, COBOL, ..)
- Data (relational, hierarchical, network, and file-based)
- Batch (scripts and scheduling, e.g. JCL, REXX)
- Security (e.g. ACF2, RACF)
- Operations management
A tested, functionally unchanged, and complete ecosystem, AMT GO, is delivered back to our customers. Better yet, the target system has the same or better quality of service (performance, availability, scalability, resilience, manageability, ..) and is as maintainable and manageable as the original mainframe environment. For maximum grip and control a comprehensive administrative toolset, AMT Control Center is available.
