Fujitsu in partnership with Asysco, migrated SPV in one seamless moveJanuary 20, 2022
Seamless migration amid a global pandemic
Anticipating future synergism with sister agencies, Sweden’s National Pensions Board (SPV) contracted Fujitsu, in partnership with Asysco, to migrate and modernize its platform in one seamless, efficient move.
The one-to-one migration meant legal agreements and functionality for members remained intact. Despite disruptions by the global pandemic just after launch, the original tight timeline and strict budget were kept in check.
In proactive anticipation for future collaboration with sister agencies, the prudent move was to migrate the COBOL mainframe to the Microsoft C#.NET and Microsoft SQL server platform.
“The mainframe wasn’t good at communicating with other systems,” explains Jakob Björklund, Head of IT at Statens Tjanstepensionsverk (SPV). “We had different platforms when we should have the same tech platform.”
SPV needed to complete the migration within a tight deadline and to a strict budget, while restricted by security matters and remote working.
When asked why Björklund, believes the project was such a resounding success he answered:
“It’s all about the project management skills with Fujitsu and Asysco, and not as much about the technical migration. Though that was excellent, too.”
