Asysco wins major Mainframe Migration deal with global player in Financial Services

November 19, 2020

We are very pleased to announce that Asysco has won a major mainframe migration project with one of the most important financial services entities in the world. The official project location will be in the UK (for the time being, Asysco’s remote delivery model will be applied).

The legacy environment (running on mainframe) will be transformed using Asysco’s Automated Migration Technology (AMT). The comprehensive scope contains approx. 6 million lines of legacy code and approx. 2 Terabytes of data, as well as interfaces, printing, etc. The target landing platform is based on native Microsoft technology and comprises .NET, SQL Server, Visual Studio (C#), and Powershell as key components.

The project has been very well prepared over the recent months from a technical, security, and project management perspective. It has started this week and will deliver a complete turnkey solution: executable in production, without disrupting the business, without any code freeze, and free of any emulations.

The key drivers for the customer to move away from their mainframe are as follows:

  • High (and ever-increasing) run costs
  • Vendor dependency and support issues
  • Lack of availability of niche mainframe skills

The migration is part of an important transformation and digitization initiative and acts as an enabler and catalyst. As a result of the migration, the customer will soon be in a position to accelerate innovation and speed up time-to-market.

Asysco has been closely aligned with this customer on modernization topics over many years and ultimately, the unique AMT solution, together with very powerful testimonials from other Asysco migrations, has convinced the customer to move forward with this project. The clear indications of the underlying business case and the positiveness of all project KPIs have only made the decision easier.

This is just another example of Asysco’s recent successes, underpinning the robustness of Asysco’s solution and approach: customers get a pandemic-proof environment through a pandemic-proof project delivery model.
